This makes me laugh every time I look at it.
It's a great shot.

I was just browsing the family gallery, and came across this delightful gem, that somehow I missed during the challenge. I just love this shot. Some good comments that maybe could of meant a slightly higher score, but this is really great. Any parent should instantly relate, and find the magic in this image! I can't believe I'm the first to fave it.

Ick Factor? No Children in your life? Sheeesh. hardly ick. You want Ick let me show you what those pea's look like when they actually get swollowed instead of spit back out. I have a 10 month old son I can have a photo with in 24 hours. lol.

I gave this photo a 7. I was planning on going back to switch it to an 8 but, I didn't realise the challenge voting ended last night, I thought it was tonight.

Definitely the "ick" factor turned me off this image and consequently lowered the score. It may be a great photo, but if I don't actually want to look at it then I can't vote it up high.

Argh! Been there... And well done. I like the white background.

I love the expression! Seems overexposed on the right side.

Hilarious concept and good lighting, but I'm not fond of the stark white background. I think a simple "home interior" background would have added context to polish off the story. A baby's hand in the foreground woud be better still. 8

lol, having a 10 month old son, I can totally relate to this photo. He hates Pea's spits out first bite and pushes spoon away for all the rest.

Funny and original photograph, the models expression is perfect. Very well executed!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

i like this idea and the pose/mimic is very convincing and all together with the title makes it a succesfull rendition
its just a few details like the spit out peas looks a bit dried up or a little more brilliance on the colours could make it even better maybe
but its very recognizable scene and evokes a smile everytime i look at it

LMAOOOOOO! Love the expression!

Love it. it does not look staged (though obviously it would have been) and the look on the (beautiful) model's face is just perfect :) 10

this is a really GREAT idea for a photo...technically it looks really nice. i would love, however, to see it taken from a more interesting angle...just so your subject isn't DEAD centered. good luck!!!
