Another shot that took some time to get and plenty of frustration - still not happy with the final shot but was running out of time. Post processing has done a bit in helping bring the shot out.

POST PROCESSING - tweak tone colour, brightness & contract and hue & saturation, crop, sharpen, resize and border added

I am blown away by this shot! To my it brings home the reality of how wealthy and rich we all are. The brightness of the jelly beans fills me with childish laughter and the darkness of the background reminds me of the sinister world in which we live.

This shot is very metaphorical, great effort and thank you.

The exposure here is not good. The image is too dark.

i like the captured movement of the 2 beans in front of the cup, and those coming out ontl the pile. negative space works well; the reflection off the cup hurts a bit

Great stop motion of the beans coming out of the pourer, and nice dof. Maybe a bit more light behind the subject would decrese the shadow and keep the attention on the beans. Nice composition as well.

This should be a winning image, but for some reason the Jellybeans don't pop! Maybe slightly different lighting/post processing. Nice pic regardless.

Great use of colour. The use of flash is a bit harsh.
