    Nice work, food is a very difficult thing to photograph well, but you've done a good job. A few thoughts.

    1. Rethink your lighting and consider the use of a circular polarizer to minimize the reflections on these peppers. Even they they appear to be well focused, the reflections make some areas appear soft.

    2. I like the colour in this one, almost. The red of the raspberries is just a little too close to the red of the containers. perhaps try the green baskets if you can find them? As well, try to avoid large, out of focus elements in the foreground such as that first basket of blueberries. They're a bit of a visual 'stumbling block'.

    3. Nice, but a little burning needed on the corn to bring out the detail.

    Just my $00.02 worth - your milage may vary.

    Edited change sharp to soft in point 1... D'ohhh...
