I'm not sure I really understand this one... The title doesn't help me much... is ABC gum a game or something? - jmsetzler

Yuk! Great subject and an interesting angle. There's a strange blue tint to the whole shot, which is a little odd. Also I think Id have tried to get closer to the gum itself. 6 - floyd

Need to be balanced

This shot almost looks like it was dark outside. Was that intentional? If not, brightening it, or adjusting the white balance may help. karmat

This would have been better shot vertically, you don't need the bushes. Sure meets the challenge.

Other than having a truely discusting subject matter, this is a well executed photo. Visually, the cans should have been centered on the wall. You did a great job keeping glare and reflection off the metal cans. The angle is good. And lighting is good. Good luck in the challenge.

great DOF and sharp ....

LOL. Definitely meets the challenge. I think this concept could have really been good. A can as the tool is a good choice and could act as a tool for some pretty cool reflective / light play. I thought the framing detracted from the photo. I would have preferred to see one can with the gum stuck on it and framed differently. Props for the original idea though. 5, just-married

Interesting shapes of the two cans together. Very dark with a bluey colourcast. A closer crop of just the cans might be better, the bit of grass and detritus around the edges doesn't add anything positive.

LOL Very good thinking. Love this idea. Shot is a bit dark but nice job ......score 6 Kee
