    #1 doesn't grab me - perhaps if you got closer to the wheel and had something going on behind it framed by the wheel

    #2 is pretty snappy, but the cap at the center of the umbrella is too close to the edge for my taste

    good pictures of fruit, but sometimes a banana is just a banana

    #2 and #5 are great! I like them. The first one is cool as well, I just ain't super keen on the back ground (but I also realize there aren't many options on ways to take this). #3 and #4 aren't hitting on much for me.

    How about from a lower perspective, instead of eye level?

    What was the UV filter for?

    Ya I guess a lower perspective would of eliminated most the background, however I wanted a eye level perspective on this subject...

    the UV filter is just on my lens for protection for the most part...and it help in outdoor lighting.

    I keep hearing and reading more and more that these UV filters can take away some quality of the picture. I was sold when they told me it was cheap protection for the lens...guess they know how to sell stuff..lol.

    I don't think I've ever shot a photo without a UV filter... unless it was with someone else's P&S. I'm going to pretend I didn't read that comment about the quality... I can't afford a new lens if it gets scratched!

    Anyway about the OP:

    1) I agree with everyone's opinion on this one, the background makes it blah, for lack of a better word.

    2) My favorite of the set.

    3) I like it, but I probably would have tilted the camera a little more to the left to make the line of the boxes a bit more diagonal.

    4) I like this. I would have taken another shot though. I really like the look of the painting on the left, I think I would have tried to get a few bananas in with that painting making up most of the background.

    5) I like it =)

    Nice job on these.

    How does the UV help in outdoor lighting, and what is it protecting from?
