I would like to have seen this on something other than a white background. You do an excellent job of capturing the softness of the white on the product. It may not have appeared that good with something like a black or blue background.

Nice image, good lines, but what is that in the foreground!?

Not sure what is on bottom left and don't like close crop on top

Highlights blown out a bit lose some of the edge of the object, and the cropping is a bit off: top of the object barely makes it into the frame, and the crushed (salt?) at the bottom corner is unbalanced and distracting.

The object in the foreground is very distracting, and it is not apparant what it is. The lighting is a bit harsh for my tastes. Just a bit too bright along the right side of the product. The cropping is also really tight on the upper edge of the photograph.

Whatever the stuff in the bottom left is, it kinda distracts and the crop is just a wee bit tight on top.

this seems a bit crooked to me. the sugary stuff in the corner wasn't necessary, i think going with just the simple mortar would gave been great

I personally would have used a wider crop at the top.

Could have been straightened a bit more, crop is too close at the top. What ever is in the lower left is just a distraction.
