"Critique as an artistic object

I like this very much because, though the negative space
in greater than the subject space, the good composition
put the eyes right on the spot, and in the right mood!
Volumes distribution and linking lines are the supporting
graphic elements of your shot that, in my book, would be
tabbed under "artistic object" and a good one!
As a documentary picture it is not doing the right thing
the right way, because the high and low keys are too far
apart, leaving too much room to emotions and less to
information. For example, there is no reference as to the
size of the fruit, a well known object should be seen in
In photography, light is free but catching it is not!
