Without a choccie guide it's always a risk whether or not I'm going to get a nutty one or a cherry thing (I don't like them). Give me the peanut butter or truffles any day! : )

Hi from the Critique Club!

From a confirmed chocolate addict, the only choice I see here it to eat them now or wait until later! :)

I think the concept of this photo is great for choices. The idea of having the hands there is a unique idea, and I think it's done pretty well. I just don't know if it really adds anything to the shot.

I would have liked more emphasis on the candies, and less on the box and the hands. The focus on the candies themselves seems just a tiny bit soft (it appears the camera focused on the word "time" on the box lid). I think the shot might have been more effective with a solid color background (vs. the woodgrain counter) and a closer and sharper focus on the candies.

I think with those adjustments made, the addition of the hands might have been good and more interesting.

I hope this has been helpful!

Judy

Translucent hands suggest gilt feelings about sampling candy? Should I or shouldn't I.

I love the balance created in the composition. The colour gives a real old world feel and the transparent hands are perfect. What a beautifully constructed image.

Excellent double exposure and great concept. I think I would have preferred it without the brand name...

Neat photo but I honestly think I would have liked it better minus the fingers.
