Got 'em before Mrs L starts the annual harvest. It's looking like a good harvest, too. Plenty to eat and, with added gin, drink. One shot trying to get that semi-transparent look they can sometimes have in the right light when ripe, one trying to get some gorgeous reflected red. K3 + 16-55mm.

Thoughts, comments welcome as usual.

I like the first image composition. The subtle illumination of the berries and specular highlights are very nice.

I would be inclined to tone down the brightness on the leaf top right though.

I agree about that leaf, too.

Something like this?
