Greetings from the critique club...

I like the approach you have taken with you photograph. Instead of just placing 2 objects side by side, you have combined them to create an interesting photograph. Bonus points for you!

I like the abstract nature of this photograph. A square crop might work better here if you cropped off the left side of the photograph. As it stands right now, the curve of the bowl leads the viewers eye away from the center. There are plenty of plate photographs on this site with a square crop. Browse around to see what I am talking about. The crop is also a little awkward as the oranges are cropped in a manner that does not look deliberate. I would prefer to see them not cropped at all.

If you need any clarification on any of my comments, please feel free to pm me. It might take some time for me to get back to you.

Great idea- well done.

Nice shot, but I don't think the title suits the challenge (even if the orange looks like a lily).

Good effort though! Crisp and clear!

I think I understand the picture, and I like it, lovely colour, but I think a different title would be appropriate.

Very creative way to show orange juice! Nicely done! The white plate on black background works well too.

it's hard to imagine the liquid is orange juice

Great idea and subject. Good lighting. I wish the bowl was position a little more to the left, leaving some more black in the frame.

Is this supposed to be orange juice. Why is it in a bowl?

An original presentation of orange and juice :-)

Most creative of the OJ shots. I'm not sure the out-of-frame helps though.
