Greetings from the Critique Club :)

Hi Pep...

Meeting the Challenge:

Your photo definitely meets the challenge and there is no doubt in my mind about that aspect. I can see how sticky and gooey this candy is just by looking at the image :)

Emotional/Artistic Impact:

This photo has a strong abstract quality to it. The random patterns and the contrasting colors seem to work very well here. As for emotional impact, I don't find much in this image, but that is OK. The abstract nature of it overrides that. I'm not a good judge of abstract art and I readily admit that :) My own photography deals much more with reality :)

Composition:

I don't believe that composition really plays a role in this photo at all. Everything here is 'random' and I am sure that is what you intended. The shapes and curves coupled with the lighting build your abstract composition perfectly.

Technical:

Once again, I believe that technical aspects are irrelevant in most abstract photos. The backlighting of your candy creates a nice glow and makes the colors stand out very nicely, so that was an excellent choice. The only possible technical issue I could mention here is the white background. The white in the lower right hand corner seems to fade to a yellowish hue and doesn't maintain and even color throughout the image. Some correction in that area could be beneficial, however, this color shift is very small and doens't play a very large role in the image overall.

Keep up the good work :)

John Setzler

I love this one - It should have come in second! For once I agree with the first place pick.

Great abstract with wonderful colours. Backlighting it was inspirational.

Cool shot; looks like something weird under the micropscope. Great colors and focus! Composition works. Wish there was a wider border.

These look like nematodes. Mmmmm. The backlighting is fun here, but it does make them look like microscopic creatures for some reason.

Interesting abstract piece. I do like looking through the transparent parts of the worms and their overlapping areas. Tiny nit: the extra sugar grains...maybe a tiny vacuum cleaner....? Focus, color and lighting all seem very good. I want to score this really highly, but the best I can go is an 8. Rob the Swash

Looks like something you'd see under a microscope on CSI. I like it!

Looks like a biology experiment in a microscope. I like the back-lighting. How'd you do it?

Nice colors and movement...maybe a little too abstract for my liking

The faux-bacteria thing is great. They look like chromosomes on a gene chart actually. Great concept and very well executed. - 9

I swear this picture looks like a one taken under a microscope of some weird bacteria. Good detail shown of single sugar grains. Turns out to be a nice abstract photo.
