Greetings from the Critique Club
and welcome to the site.

This is a good first effort for a challenge. It definitely fit the criteria of the challenge.

A number of comments have already pointed out some the weaknesses.

The crop and angle are the two major points I see.

If you could bring the level of view up, to focus more on the cookies and the top part of the oven I think it will help. A little light on the interior of the oven would accent it. I could see using a smaller baking sheet with fewer cookies so you would have more space around your central theme.

I do think that the oven mitt is fine, it creates a sense of movement, your pulling the fresh cookies out of the oven. I might find a more neutral one though.

I hope this helps.

The cookies look great, but I think the shot cries out for cropping fairly close below the tray, and the hot pad looks out of place.

What yummy cookies! I feel like the lighting could be changed to create more of a warm tone, though- this lighting makes it seem a little bit sterile.

Perfect, a great definition for "scents and aromas"! Good work, really!

Strange how Your title contradicted the image u are trying to portray, I thought I felt that the cookies are COLD rather then freshly out of the oven... Lighting inadequacy??? i think it could be. Warmer coloured lighting will help.

I like your photo but I would have liked the angle of view a little higher.

Did you buy a baking tray just for this shot? And were those cookies really baked on it? It's still very clean ... kind of points up the dirty look of the oven behind them I fear.

Just a record shot. I appreciate the cookies smell good but it's just not coming across for me.
