Looking at the blur on the ears, I would think that the top of the 'egghead' and the collar area behind the ears should be blurred as well. The glasses appear very 'choppy' , the edges need to be smoother. From the highlights on the egg, I would suggest placing highlights on the glasses to the right side. Also, the glasses don't appear to have a shadow. Would they not be casting a shadow on the right side of the nose bridge? IMO if these problems are corrected this would be a much improved image.

Edit: Looks much better now.

In my opinion, the outline around the avocados detracts from the impression of reality you are hoping to portray.

This looks incredibly like this tutorial: http://psd.tutsplus.com/drawing/create-a-citrus-fruit-design-from-scratch-in-photoshop/ so I don't think you have used the source image.

Author, you need source links for the images. Also, you have multiple light sources, the stump is lit from the left, the buddha from the right and the background from above. Flip the buddha so he matches the stump, and then work with burn and dodge on the rest of the image.

Edit: Looks much better now.

I think you need to work on the shadows and highlights as you have multiple light sources. Also, some of the fruits have a halo around them (blackberry, cherry, green apple (upper right)), perhaps use an inner shadow with a colour picked from each piece so it matches?. If you correct these issues I feel the image will be stronger for it.

I think if you redo the shadows as already mentioned and adjust the perspective of the keyboard this will be a very strong entry.

Hmm...you have two different light sources. The light for the buildings is coming from the right, the light on the elephant is coming from the left. Flip the elephant and shadow so they match.

A little tidying up is needed. There are masking leftovers under the left foot, around the top of the left leg and to the right of the bun. Clean those up and you will have yourself a nice entry.

Author, the line on the goose's back needs to be moved to correct the perspective. Other than that, I think this goose is in BIG trouble - his goose is cooked.

The reflection of the drips on the cherry piece is different to what is actually on it. I think it would be better if you applied the drip thing to each piece individually as well, thewn you won't have them floating in mid air in between the pieces. You will also be able to apply some perspective to them as well, making them smaller as they go further back into the distance. Hope this helps.

Not sure if you can use the render. It has nothing to do with copyright, it has to do with using other peoples artwork.

OK, I cannot see it......where did you hide the blueness? If you make it more blue to fit in with the theme, then this will be a good image.

Paulus62 says:

The drop shadow needs to be softened more to stop the 'floating' effect of the splash. And perhaps not so strong with the plastic wrap as this is masking the good work you did underneath.

I don't think there would be so much lighting along the underside of the arm and hand judging by the shadow on the ground. Just an opinion.

Paulus62 says:

Here's the things that I noticed - there are some masking artifacts along the top of the image, particularly noticable in the left and right corners. The ridge of the mountains need to be adjusted, there is a strange effect along the whole length. At the bottom you need to bring your snow just a little further. If you correct these small errors, then you will have yourself quite a good picture.

If you apply a displacement map to the reflection it will look more realistic. A tutorial on displacement maps can be found here: http://www.photoshopsupport.com/elements/tutorials/displace-filter/displacement-map.html
