Thanks all for the great comments! If every challenge was as helpful as this one I could skip my college photo class!

Good job of showing the texture. I kinda like the effect of the overexposure on the right to the lefthand shaddows -- but it may be too much overexposure?

The highlights are a little too blown out for me. Exposure change might help.

too bright, hard to see the texture of the dice

Well, it certainly looks intentional, but being so blown out just isn't doing it for me in this instance. It's a real cool idea, maybe toned down, it would be more appealing to me.

Little too overexposed for my taste. Creative idea and nice composition.

I am terribly sorry but this photo doesn´t do anything for me. To be more specific the blown out highlight of what I assume is a flash or some kind of lamp kills this shot for me personally and there is nothing good in the image that counterweights that. Also the image is very flat contrast wise and soft and the overexposure combined with the strong shadow draws the attention away from what little texture there is in the shot. I gave it a 3 though since I has some traces of texture but if it had been off topic I would have given it a 1.

On the plus side you seem to have been experimenting with lightsources and experimentation is always good so keep it up, practice makes perfect.

Interesting, yes, but I'm not sure this really works all that well. The word that comes to mind first is "odd". I think maybe it's the bamboo mat or blinds that distracts from the dice a little. Good idea, it just needs a little more work.

The highlights are a bit too extreme for me

Too blown out on right side imho 5.

It's an interesting concept. I don't particularly like the blown highlights on the bottom right side, but interesting, nonetheless. I should point out that 3+2=5, not 7.
