aside from the warm tungsten color cast, i really like this picture. try using your white balance controls.

I thought this was more a contrast than differences in textures.

How appetizing! Good diagonal. Color needs some adjusting to remove some of the overall yellow cast. Also it's not crisply focused.

Great use of color! This one adds smell to texture; I can smell the popcorn right now.

Try putting a light on one side of this to make the texture stand out more.

Technical Aspects8
Meets Challenge9
Total Score8

For those that are just learning, like me.

Composition: Scoring in this area is based on basic composition of a picture and includes the rule of thirds, balance, cropping, and curved and diagonal lines. Subject matter that does not lend itself to the picture or otherwise unwanted is also considered here.

Originality: Scoring in this area is based on pictures or concepts that I have seen, as well as how much effort you have invested in the picture. Usually a little something that sets it aside from a snapshot. Does it make me want to come back for another look? You know things like that.

Technical Aspects: Focus, exposure, lighting, and other special effects (done by the camera), and post processing are all considered in this category.

Meets Challenge: This is based on my interpretation of if you, have/have not, met the challenge. This is fairly simple but quite important for this site.

There are many sites that can give you assistance in achieving better skills in photography, but I think the best way to learn is to take pictures and show them to other people. Believe me when it is a good one you will know it.

Good luck!

oooh, yummy. I love hot tamales, especially when they're fresh and soft and... sorry. about the photo, excellent choice of subject. lighting and composition are nicely done. the only thing I could ask for is a little more color contrast. some cool colors to offset the predominantly warm image (some blue sweet tarts, for instance). good shot, though.

Your white balance appears a bit off Giving an orange tinge.
