This is a good idea and I really like the different shades of purple. What probably kept it from scoring higher is the noise and shadows. It appears as if you have a blue light on the left, although it may just appear that way due to PP. The paint on the top of the picture looks more like a very deep red than purple. If you want to use existing light, you may need more of it to reduce noise.

Great idea - I would have worried that people might think my purple wasn't purple - this fixes that :}!!!

Beautiful idea but i think technically could be better done.

Creative idea. Execution good: nice arrangement of mediums. However, the post-processing is too much, I don't know what term describes the blotchy background.

I like the idea here, unfortunately it's let down by the technicalities. There seems to be a lot of noise, either camera noise or from increased contrast (I reckon that this image actually works quite well if you dial the contrast down a bit, as then - to me at least - the text on the crayon stands out more).

White balance is off here, and the focus is too soft.

It's a shame the high noise in the picture. You should try to add more light to reduce it, or a lower iso. 5 p

the placement of the subject/s is very good. the eyes follow the zigzag movement as suggested by the picture.

This is a very clever solution to the purple challenge. Also well executed
