Greetings from the Critique Club :)

Hi Webster...

I like the colors on your egg.. the subtle colors here have nice appeal and they are not overpowering like I see on most easter eggs. Most people don't take this approach... an artistic approach... this was an excellent choice :)

There are two issues I see here that I feel would improve the photo quite a bit... 1 - the background seems to be quite distracting from the egg itself. It is a bit busy and it causes me to spend too much time focusing on it rather than the egg, which is the primary subject in the photo. 2 - the egg doesn't seem to be in sharp focus, and I can't really see any reason that it shouldn't be.

The final issue that bugs me a little more than the rest is that I see some cloning in the lower left corner. This is ILLEGAL. You should read the rules of editing for the challenges. If someone had seen this, they would have requested disqualification on your photo....

The distracting background make it difficult to see the egg.

um . . . i'm not sure if the background adds anything to the photo, and the colors are a little dull, and the focus seems a little soft on the whatever it is stuck to the bottom of the egg. that said, eggs are tricky with the voters (see my hungarian eggs submission).

The only Easter egg I've seen so far, I thought there would be lots of them in this challenge! I like the way you have the same colors of the egg also in the background.
