Greetings fromt the Critique Club
Bet you didn't want to see me again!

I like the composition and idea for this shot. As I said in my original comment, I'd have moved the broken candy out of the picture and moved the focus slightly over to the right to eliminate that shadowing.

There are a lot of colors here - ones we all know and love. I think they weren't vibrant enough, definitely could have used some post-shot adjustments. Good CHOICE of colors.

This shot seems out of focus to me. If you're going to get this close to the subject, it seems to work to try to capture as much detail as you can.

I think this is a main issue with your final score. If your shot had more natural lighting, more lighting in general, I think it would have done well. It is all a bit too dark.

I viewed your other shots. There seem to be two kinds of shots you've submitted - most are really good and a few seem to need the technical help this one needs. I'd just work on learning as much as you can and applying that. And good luck in future challenges. :)

got one bad one in the middle. sticks out like a sore thumb.. I hope you did that on purpose.

Unfortunately, it's way too blurry and dark...need more be said. Keep going, though...work on focusing your subject, lighting and post work (brightness/contrast) and (saturation/hue).
04/12/2003 12:13:08 PM
Nice idea. Needs better focus and cropping out the left side.
04/11/2003 07:16:35 PM
Would have been a good range of colors but the photo is too dark.
04/11/2003 01:40:38 PM
good job, nice colors
04/10/2003 08:37:26 PM
great colors! the focus is a bit too soft and the dark shadow on the left is distracting. if you're a member, you should try it again for this week's challenge!

Candies look a little dark and under lighted, good pic though
04/10/2003 08:15:50 AM
mmm yummy! This would also be a good photo for this week's challenge! It could be just a tad sharper. Still yummy though :-)

Out of focus and the broken up green one one in the middle distracts a lot.
04/09/2003 02:09:23 PM
sadly, this is very out of focus, and a bit too dark.
04/09/2003 01:52:05 PM
The shot seems dark and a little out of focus.
04/09/2003 12:00:18 PM
The focus doesn't seem real sharp.
04/08/2003 09:55:40 PM
Kind of fuzzy, too dark on the top and left. Good idea, but not a lot of thought in the execution of the shot.
04/08/2003 06:36:15 PM
A little more outside light.... less flash.... not so close up
04/08/2003 02:46:17 PM
Very colorful, and I'm glad you did not remove the green ones BUT ! you should have taken out the chipped one to enhance the view of your picture as a total. By leaving the chipped one in it takes away from the overall view of your shot as a whole.
04/08/2003 02:04:20 PM
good job, nice photo.
04/08/2003 01:28:32 PM
It's blurry, and has very low lighting. It looks like a snapshot just to get an entry submitted. Try moving a light source closer, or using natural lighting. Also - move the broken MnM out of the frame. :) Crop the black edge off the left, too.
04/08/2003 10:41:48 AM
Nice idea, but too dark and blurry.
04/08/2003 05:38:50 AM
If only we had those phsyic powers? Your color could use a tad of tweeking.
04/08/2003 02:20:00 AM
Focusl. The colored M&M seem to be gouped together. Get rid of the broken one.
04/07/2003 09:38:16 PM
seems blurry
04/07/2003 09:12:45 PM
Need better lighting
04/07/2003 08:29:56 PM
The candy seems to be a bit out of focus. Also, you probably should have cropped this differently and filled the entire frame with the m's
04/07/2003 04:41:55 PM
The colors seem a bit drab. Perhaps brighten up the photo a bit and increase the saturation.
04/07/2003 03:28:13 PM
Some focus issues, no?
04/07/2003 01:46:35 PM
A sharper focus and brighter colors would help here. Photo is alittle dark to me and the beautiful colors really need to "pop" to get this one across.
04/07/2003 09:28:55 AM
mmmm mmm mmm mmm yummy
04/07/2003 06:27:38 AM
Appears to be out of focus..
04/07/2003 03:24:27 AM
This photo is too dark and it's out of focus. You shouldn't use chipped props.
