M&M's in two glass vases. One farther back then the other. Small aperture so as to focus nearer vase contents and back vases contents at the same time. Using a 500w halogen shop light for the light source.

Greetings from the Critique Club :)

I really like the color in this image. I also enjoy the abstract nature of the shot created by the texture in the glass. The single red and single green pieces create a nice fit for the challenge. I also really like the way you titled this photo ;) It just makes sense to me :)

On a compositional note, I believe that creating a diagonal split between the glass containers would possibly create some more impact. Also to fit the title theme, offsetting the odd colored candy a bit would have been stronger also.

The combination of red and green work very well together in this image also. They create a nice element of contrast. I believe that contrasts are very important in most photographs. In a color or black and white image, the contrast is what usually creates the 'wow' factor, along with strong composition of the image. Color is a wonderful thing and it has been used very effectively in this image.

This image also shows me a nice 'thought' pattern from the photographer. You are thinking outside the 'box' and thinking like that usually leads to some impressive photos.

Kudos on a nice shot :)

Nice job - must've taken some time separating all those candies! I like how the red is set back from the green. good work. 8

Very, very, very clever idea!

Basically a nice shot and the odd colored MM is a "strangeness", but I had hoped for more out of this world strange from this challenge. Crinkled glass/plastic is a neat touch. 7 Swash

Colours are excellent - reds and greens seem to go together well. I like how you have added one of each colour to the other. Nicely done. GL

Interesting way to meet the challenge.

I like the contrasts of red and green, the reflections off the glass is the only detraction.

Very nice idea.

This would have been so much better if the glasses were clear! DOF is a little off given that you have two subjects. Great concept though. GL!
