Greetings from the Critique Club!

First, let me say that I am not a professional or even a very good amature photographer, so you may want to take my comments with a grain of salt.

Wow - a very interesting photo. What's making it go into my favorites?

The colors are to DIE for. They make my heart all melty. I really, really love them.

An interesting and unique concept. Makes you stop and think for a moment.

A new visual perspective on a familiar toy. It captures the plasticness while adding a feeling of true art.

A bold take on the challenge.

Here are things I'd suggest as improvements. I'd really like to see the entire curve of the plate (looser crop at the top). The highlights at the top right are a bit too strong. Also, the shadow of the feet is not a sharp V shape at the tip as it should be. I don't know what caused that but it is a bit distracting. Also the image should be bigger for a greater impact.

Unfortunately, with the way that DPC voters are, these improvements might not have increased your score significantly because of the true uniqueness of your photo. It's abstract in a way, and I think a lot of times that is not rewarded here.

Congrats for jumping into the challenges - I've found that a really great way to learn. Looking forward to seeing more photos from you. Much luck to you here at DPC!

I hope this helps! Feel free to PM me if you have any questions.

Looks computer generated, too bad so small, creative.
