Mmm, jelly beans! I'm with you, I probably shouldn't eat them either, heh.

These jelly beans pop right off the screen. Your colors are bright and rich. I like your composition and that a few have spilled out of their dish. You know you have to eat those, right??

I think where this image lacks is the lighting. It is pretty harsh and could use a lot of softening/diffusing by either passing the light through a white screen of some sort or bouncing it off of something else.
