Jasmine rice. Number two pencils. Cooked with a rice cooker to a tender state of done-ness. And just a little bit of fun tossed in.

Thanks. Unfortunately, ranked 103 out of 110. Ouch. I thought I was original at first, then, I saw all the other chopstick entries. So, mine pales in comparison to 102 other ones out there. Hey, at least I got another sweep (scoring a vote in each point catagory!).

More chopsticks. Love the bowl.

For me, I would have scored this better with maybe some softer lighting or another element in your image like a fortune cookie (or shot of saki) :-)

Too many chopsticks and knitting needles.. sorry...

Better composition and sharper focus would have improved this.
Others used white background for food subject...i think that works best.

Nice composition.. but not a very original idea I'm afraid. :-/

I don't really like how the stamp on the pencil is visible, but I figure it was a conscious decision to avoid ridiculous DNMC claims.

Nice colours and good contrast. Composition is good, but the perspective could've been a bit more interesting.
