Fruit photography

For the first time I tried fruit photography with controlled light (almost) by these strawberries. I used a Nikon SB-900 strobe with a small Lastolite soft box on it, and a golden reflector. In the setup the strobe was firing from front right side with about 40 degrees from the horizontal line of the strawberries' imaginary plane. The golden reflector was on the left side very close to the berries. I also used a 20mm extension tube from Polaroid to give my 85mm lens a little macro capability, so that I could focus from a closer distance.
The result is post processed in Capture NX2.
