Some lighting practice I've been working on, trying to get the hang of photorealism. Feedback and advice is great!

WOW! it's hard to give feedback on a masterpiece but I'll give it a go...
maybe the red of the strawberry is a bit flat, by adding some kind of noise or maybe a slight texture the strawberry will get a bit more depth.
Though, you did a great job man! Keep rocking! :D
Nice one! Think you should add some more detail, like fibers from the seeds ("strawberry hair").
I'd give it a bit more volume on the top (highlights/shadows). The bottom is very well done, but on the top we can notice it is a 2D composition.
Really well done.
Here is a feedback : I think the bottom right part of the strawberry looks curiously glossy.
Otherwise, the whole image looks awesome.
Looks great, though I agree with @Emanuel Sá.
Detailed all the way down to 16px! Color coming off of the leaves is just great. Using this for my 3D program: http://cl.ly/3s2V003k161g3k343L2c
Awesome work. I like this reflection.
I agree with @Thom. The top of the strawberry looks a bit flat but it still looks amazing. Great work on the green part at the top of the strawberry!
It's a bit flat in the middle, as others have pointed out. Also the very small amount of water only on the top is a bit odd. Great overall though!
Yes. The reflection on the leaf and the water droplets - fantastic
Wooow... I want to eat this strawberry .. Fantastic job, great detail and well excecuted..
More realism may be achieved by:
- creating a sharper 'shine' zone on the top
- adding a lighter zone right at the edge after it gets darker (top left zone) to convey ambient reflective light from surroundings
I'm not an artist, but I hire plenty :)
Looks really well done. I recommend taking a look at @creativemints attempt... it might help: http://drbl.in/cOmB
I think you have an amazingly detailed image here. Your attention to the details is great. I also feel that "something" is making the strawberry flat, and many have suggested some alterations in the shading/highlighting/texturing. But i think it's actually the pattern of the seeds that is working against you. It's the perspective of the impressed seeds as it gets towards the left/top of the strawberry that doesnt change significantly enough to make it feel like they are going around the side of the strawberry.
Hopefully that makes sense, and helps
Thank you so much for the feedback, everyone!
@Thom I couldn't figure out what sort of texture a strawberry flesh had–it's really translucent anyway.
@Jani Muikku Yes. I couldn't find a good way to make the hairs, sadly, so I left them out. Will try to get details like that completed in the future.
@Alex Parker ⇢ ☁ I think you're right about the seed pattern. That was one of the most challenging parts of this for me–it's one of the areas where GIMP is weak. Definitely some more attention to the mapping of the texture would be a great depth cue.
I think it looks yummy.
Sexy icon :)
Awesome! It's just so real!
Nice job :)
