    PHOTO EDITING NOT OK
    It doesnt really grab me. I see multiple areas trying to grab my attention instead of one prime focal point. Several things i think would help. Use a smaller bowl (after all is the photo about the bowl or lemons) and fill it to overflowing with lemons, Lay one or two on the table close to the bowl as if they fell out, then pick out a single lemon in or near the bowl as a focal point and capitalize on that. Maybe add a few leaves off a lemon tree, or a lemon with a sprig of leaves attached, if possible to add some color. A bright contrasting color tablecloth would add some pop too.
    Look at your lighting, get your main light around front more to help eliminate that frontal shadow. it's distracting. Keeping enough angle on your lighting to maintain texture is fine but not the sidelighting effect i see here.
    Does anyone know of photography forum's that people Actually reply/comment to postings???

    I like the scope of the image but it will be better if there's better lightning but overall great lemon photo (Y)

    The image is really amazing! But I would still suggest keeping a single focal point!
