How many puns are there going to be? I'm sure mine won't be the only one. Used a piece of dental floss to suspend the lone pea. I ate the peas afterwards because I like them and they are good for you.

I know it's crooked. I tried everything and I think it's the angle I shot it at because nothing looked right

Fair amount of PP. Glad this was advanced!

RAW: WB adjustment
PS:
Cloned out the dental floss and some of the reflections on the peas and the glass

Post Challenge:
I doa lot of stuff with white backgrounds. The reflections suck, and I got a polarizer (yah!) after I shot this. Anways, I wanted to say if you can't see everything, maybe think about calibrating your monitor?

Great set-up and play on words. Well done with the esca-pea, too. My only regret is the apparent softness of the focus and the light which seems not quite controlled on the bottom half.

Good color. I think the shadow on the left of the glass is somewhat distracting. This is one of the few pea puns I did not think of during this challenge.

nice play on words. I think this would have gone with a different color background so that the glass stands out more.

Great idea! Reflections/ haze in the glass are a shame but still works well.
