Peas were poured from a cookie sheet above the already-filled cup of peas. Shot outside in natural light. Some peas were harmed during this process.

Shot in RAW
Created 3 differently exposed versions from the single RAW file and combined them HDR style.

In PS:
Selectively used gaussian blur on the cup (each color)
Spot healed a hot pixel

Hi from the Critique Club!

Nice image you have here.

The composition is nice, the displacement of the peas looks random, making it easier for the eye to see the action.

One thing I think this photo is lacking IMO is a little contrast. The whites and blues in the sky are similar to the whites and blues of the cup. The peas kinda bring up the contrast but I would have liked to see more green, more focus on the peas. You could maybe experiement with some different shutter speeds.

Def. fits the challenge.

Other than those minor details, I think this is a lovely image :)

I think i would have liked it alot better (i think) with the peas stopped. and maybe in portrait format with the peas falling into the cup.
