Once again , I place mid-pack. I did get a LOT of comments on this one, though. I suppose this was a picture that you either love or hate.

It was a shot of opportunity, I spotted this at the snack bar at a high school football game.

I almost entered this one, but decided it was too hard to figure out what it was:

I do like the steamy drops on the glass in the one I didn't use.

A decent sized gap between your final average and what the commenters average vote is indicates you've appealed well to a segment of the crowd. In many instances, that's my personal goal, since a lot of what I shoot doesn't have mass appeal. This is an extremely creative and different view of "popcorn" and something I would have voted high (had I voted this challenge.) It's clearly popcorn, it's well composed, technicals are good. The only nit is the red object which grabs the eye but doesn't resolve into anything identifiable. I really like the single popped kernel that seems lighter than all the rest.

I was one of those that loved it. Unique, cool color and light, and let's face it - lots of popcorn is greasy.

This is nice and abstracty. I like the golden color.

Gross, yet delecious. Nice idea. Personally, I think this works well. Nice job.

Almost impressionistic. Kinda cool.

Would love to see this focus the other way around. Focus on the steamy treat with the buttered glass in the foreground.

Just not a very appealing shot to me.

Nice abstract!

Hmmmm, well this was a unique idea that just didn't work out all that well. I think you were going for a soft impressionistic feel, and ended up with a kind of greasy mess. It was worth a try though... it just didn't work for me.

This image is not for me, it makes me wanna hurl to be honest... Sorry

Nice texture, but doesn't say "popcorn" very strongly.

My favorite of the challenge, It is the only one that has really made me hungry for some popcorn!

I wish the glass wasn't quite so steamy and buttered so you could see a little more detail on the popcorn. Also the flare (flash?) in the middle is a bit distracting.

Interesting abstract. Maybe would work better with one large element closer to focus.

That looks incredibly unappetizing to me, but then I am not a big fan of grease.

this made me crave some movie popcorn!

hard to tell what it is ( if I didn't already know) , but I can easily get the concept and I think it shows more creativity than some of the photos I have voted on thus far
