Obviously its a pesto straw and the drink is right out of frame. Major oobie points! Bummer about the score, I think it would have scored well if it had been put in the other box with the food. I like the simple composition with leading lines to the fork.

I think this is in the wrong challenge - the pesto pasta doesn't look so very refreshing as a beverage.

No doubt I you've already been told you put this in the wrong challenge. I won't do a DNMC vote on it , as I'm sure it was accidental.

i like your photograph. it certainly does make me want to try some pasta! maybe not quite a beverage... but a fun shot :)Perhaps even a little more DOP next time to really blur out the background, and really focus on the foreground: the fork and pasta. Mm!
