CRITIQUE CLUB REVIEW

A conceptually excellent photo. Funny and witty. Great delineation of texture and the black white works very well. Good choice of pistachios as the 'real' nuts, with the way they pop open.

I feel the composition is just a bit busy. You have used DOF well to isolate the metal nut from the others but i feel it might need a little something more to get it more distinct. It might have helped for your light to catch high light on the metal nut instead of leaving it dark.

Or maybe use a spotlighting effect (cone of paper over a desklamp works well) to single out the metal nut, while leaving the pistachios darker.

Overall a fine effort, and one you should be proud of :).

Well taken shot. Strange, but honestly, I had hoped this challenge would bring more out of this world strange-ness. 8 Swash

Very nutty indeed. Good macro look.

Great idea. Unfortunately the nut gets lost in the nuts because of the B&W. I think it would have made a much stronger focal point in colour.

Cute idea, nice use of light and b/w. The lighting seems to lead the eye to the "nut" out of place. Good job.

Great lighting and contrast. The NUT is an excellent idea amongst all the other nuts. lol did that come out right?? Well done anyways.

Hehehehe! My type of humor. And a great pic at that! Well done and cropped! Great focus on the nut (uhhh... the metal one ;o)). Lighting is perfect. A well deserved 8

Great color (or lack of) and lighting. This is one of my top two picks for the week. Nice shot.

Love the play on words. Think it would have stood out better in color though. But then you may not have wanted it to jump out at you, rather it be subtle. Anyway, good shot. PTL

lol. talk about feeling out of place :)

Great Idea. The challenge was met. I think I would like to see some colour. My eyes keep wandering to the nuts in the front of the picture that are out of focus...but it does make the metal nut stand out. Good job.
