I chose to focus on the word "victory", not sure if it works.
the "grain" on the black area is texture of leather being lit up; sorry bout that.

** Greetings from the Critique Club **

I honestly do not feel the focus being on the word Victory came across clear enough to get people to understand how this fit the challenge. After all, the image was supposed to convey the fear - not the remedy.
Technically, the lighting needs improvement as the harsh shadow off the cheese is distracting being in sharp contrast to the blown out cheese. The poor lighting would also account for the grain/noise of your background. I would have liked to see better focus overall.

Your photo is coming across as a grainy on my screen. Not a bad setup. I like the lighting. One point deducted for not having phobia name mentioned in title as dictated by challenge.

Great lightling. That you can't see the back of the trap really conveys being at the edge of a dark world of scary critters. Very creative.

I see the mouse trap and I see the title... but there is no one here to be afraid of a mouse.
