A visit from the Critique Club :)

Wow, this made me laugh. I think these types of photos were quite popular for this challenge. But I suppose this was the challenge!

I am not sure which way would have worked better 11 eggs/1 orange or 11 oranges/1 egg. I can see why this is stranger, but I would consider "land" to be the crate and eggs as native inhabitants of that land with one solo orange being the outsider.

Lighting on this photo is pretty good but I think it could be done a bit better without shadows at all. Also the oranges on the right seem to be a slightly less lighted than the ones in the foreground.

I like the composition of the egg crate being slightly on an angle. Also the lines provide some good contrast to the curvy eggs.

The black background is perfect for this photo. It brings all attention to the carton.

I think this is a very well executed photo.

I like the concept, I wonder if taking the same shot with the lid removed would make for a more interesting composition.

great idea.. :) altho wouldnt it have made more sense an orange snuck into a pack of eggs? the lighting doesnt do the most for this subject.
