ok... so the original idea was a butterfly, but my wife noticed that the peas lend themselves to do a dragonfly much better...

This was a good idea (I didn't vote in the whole peas challenge, so this is the first time I'm seeing it). The shadow is great. ;>þ

Love this one. Great idea. Question though, why not use peas on the wings too? Cheers, Vikas.

Great concept and well executed. I would wish for a different coloured background and the vignetting of the lighting at the edges is very distracting sadly.

very creative. the single light works for me here. I would have been even better with less wrinkly peas. good job.

Yes. This is fun and creative. Nicely done overall. Some may take issue with the lighting but it appears that you were going for a spotlight type look. Look forward to seeing who did this one! ;^) Good luck.

I like the way it seems to be in the spotlight but not the shadow underneath.

Hahaha Well done!
I love the way you did this. Must have taken a while. The subject is nicely positioned inside the frame.
The background is too screaming yellow though and the picure is a little corny.

Think I'm in ribbon territory here ;-) Good luck.

How cute! Very original idea, I love it. The yellow was a perfect backdrop for the green. Very well done.

This was such a weird challenge...

great idea, love the different ways you have used the peas and the colour of the background sets it off,

very creative...the peas look like they once had a better life...perhaps if you used fresh instead of frozen??? or maybe you wanted this effect??? Like it
