First off congrats on your first submission... it's exciting when you get those first week's results back!
Composition - The main focal point is very centered in this picture, which usually isn't desirable in photography. I think had you moved the egg and silly putty somewhere else in the picture (rule of thirds) it might have made for a more interesting photo. I also think that the main subject could have filled the frame a lot more. As it is it doesn't do much, visually.
Exposure - don't really see anything wrong with this, looks ok to me.
Color - the colors are vibrant blue, very pretty, and you caught them pretty well.
Focus - your focus is really good. No problems there.
Background - your background is very distracting, not only is it blue, and competeing for attention with the intended subject, but also it is very in focus. I would have suggested, maybe something pure white to really make the blue egg and putty stick out!
Fit for challenge - all blue, what can I say?
Lighting - the lighting is uneven, and very bright on some spots. It's hard not having a studio, or the setup to take a good picture in. Believe me, I know... I'm at college <GRIN>
Wowability - I don't see much here... it just doesn't catch me
Final Comments - good job.... try the shot over, and experiment... it can be a real learning experience... and besides its digital, your not wasting any film :-) Good luck!
