Funny idea for the pun, but without the title, those also look like lemons kind of. Perhaps a different set up and different lighting or getting in closer to the potatoes would enhance your creative idea.

A really good idea, but the potatoes are too small - a closer shot would've improved it.

it looks a little out of focus

A good idea, no doubt, but the execution could certainly use some work. Colors are pretty sad, and the pixelation is very evident.

Photo is too yellow for me and I had to really stare at it a while to figure out what I was looking at. Perhaps better lighting and a different angle or composition would have helped. Not a bad idea though. I gave it a 4. Would have got a 5 if the light and/or composition were a little better

I needed the title to recognize the peeled potatoes.

although a clever idea, without the title i would not have know what i was looking at. The potatoes should be the main focus of the shot as it is the main focus is the lamp and the arm of the couch.

Fun idea. This entry seems over processed. The potatoes look almost like spotlights.

Great idea but the focus or size isn't great

Great idea, the lighting and exposure is off - you can't even tell they are potatoes unless you read the title. Nice idea though!

fabulous finish and composition. great textures. perfect except for the lines in the right. maybe just a slightly tighter crop on top. then, what do i know. it's YOUR art. love it!!
