I liked this new layout enough to start right in on it. And then on it went...just a bit more here, then a bit more there, and by late last night here is where I stopped. Now I want it all to rest for a bit.
But I do have first impressions. I am mostly okay with the three back objects but that foreground pear, I think, could use a bit less black and a bit more detail. And, maybe a bit of darkening for the second pear. Either way or both, I feel that it is about balancing those two objects. I'll let it all simmer for a while before I go back in.
