Nice stop of the action. I think this would have worked better without the water and a different back ground and just tossing the pasta.

This is a creative and interesting concept. It appears you've stopped the motion of most water droplets and some pasta, however there are some motion trails and/or blurriness of the pasta inside the strainer. Not trying to be nit picky, just pointing out what the viewer/voter might see but NOT tell you. ;^) The exposure is good. Not sure about the additional items in the vicinity...thinking they may hurt more than help as they do draw the eye away from the main subject. JMO of course. Good luck in the challenge.

ok, you've stopped some motion, and i know this took some work. i just wish you had gone a little more overboard and 1) made MORE stuff be flying out, and 2) shot a bit tighter--as is, there's so much clutter that the flying noodles are somewhat lost.

"Great Job" from the "Great Job Baggie"! A very well executed shot. I enjoy looking at this, it makes me want to head to the kitchen to get the sauce going. The lighting and use of color in this is very nice. It is very clear and sharp. The little props around the window and sink add lots of interest. I wish there was a little more tossing of the pasta here. There's a whole bowl of the pasta to throw in the air, but this only has a few pieces. Anyway, I can see this shot hanging in a kitchen, of course, but also could be in a restaraunt, or department store in their kitchenware section! Upping my original 7 after taking a second, longer look. Giving you a 9. It would be a 10, except for the lack of pasta in the air. Next time, just give it a good toss!

I am hungry now. I think I am going to have to order some food. Thanks for that. A well laid out photo that adds a unique entry to the theme. Nice job!

you certainly stopped motion here, andyou're making me hungry!

I am not sure I like the background and the light in the window, but good job
