This is really cool and I thought I'd left a comment before but see I didn't so here it is. :)

Content/Composition
The content is of course very simple, but by taking the challenge topic very literally it fits just right. You also did chose a fully symmetric composition, which was a strong, hence good choice. There might be different interesting angle of view to the same subjects, but then it wouldn't be your image anymore. So you did a great job here.
Also the relation between the pea and the plate was well set by your cropping.
Speaking of cropping: that's of course one of the most important part in your image. It makes a great balance between the black and white part. Very well done!
Light is also set greatly. I like the variation of bluish greys on the plate and the same subtle variations of green on the pea. Also that any harsh reflections has been avoided has to be noted. Thumb up!
Only the black should be featureless (first I thought it was dust on my screen:)). Of course, pure black (as well as pure white) is one of the most complicated tasks.

Camera work -technically
Nothing special to mention here: focus is great (not much to focus though) and exposure excellent.

Digital Processing - Technical
Can't see anything special worth mentioning.

Fits the challenge
Of course it does.

Good luck for you further submissions.

I love the symmetry of this. I would have liked to have seen the black more solid, giving the white just a little more of a punch here. Great job.

ah.. the pea faces a very difficult choice... there are tremendous consequences confusing every aspect of this decision.. will the pea jump off the plate (his home for as long as he can remember) into the unknown darkness? The darkness may well never end, but is mr. pea ready for the grand adventure? the journey is certainly not for the squeamish- what would you do in this position? would you take your chance on the unknown? or would you surrender to the comfort of familiarity? i, myself am torn.

Great shot - centering the olive (?) makes the photo.

Nice concept but for me a bit too centered. (8)

I'm not a fan of shots like this, but here is my $.02. A fresh or frozen pee would be much brighter green and may make it better (this one is canned, right?). Also, a sheer black background would make it better. The fabric contrasts with the smoothness of the plate.
