I am hoping this does ok. I got the idea when I was driving but I think there will be many like it.

The picture is lit with a Elinchrom D-Lite 4 transparent umbrella with a reflector on the other side.

Hello from the Critique Club.

Looking at the voting histogram for this image I must confess that I am confused. How five people could score this a one I have no idea. Your subject was peas and definitely met the challenge. The idea was simple but well executed. A person would have to be blind to miss the humor. The lighting was well done, as the peas have good color, texture, and the shadows help to give a three-dimensional look to the peas. The only suggestion I have for improvement would be to use a square crop for this image, as the negative space to the right doesn't really add to the composition. Your score was solid for such a simple idea but it should have been higher IMHO.

Feel free to PM me if you have any questions regarding this critique.

the contrast is beautiful in this one, plus lots of texture in the peas. I like it!

kinda simple but nice. I would have used less wrinkled peas. also you have some sensor dust, since this is advanced I would have cloned it out.
