jean, I'm very partial to a dark background, and here it is used to great effect, I think because you've softened the edges and taken out the harsh lights and added reflections, it all comes together very nicely :)

I like the dark background and painterly quality.

Lovely 'olde worlde' colours, chiaroscuro light, and the soft fruit are really well painted. :D

Very nice. It remembers me the atmosphere of dutch masters. What a delicate and fine shaping of fruits with light and colors !
"Bravo !".
