Greetings from the Critique Club.

First impressions are that the colours are off. It feels too bright and also a bit confusing.

Technically it seems like the saturation is too high or the HDR tone mapping has gone haywire! Composition is poor as there are orange bits scattered throughout the frame rather than being in an area where our eyes can settle. There are no leading lines to guide us around the placement you have chosen.

Artistically some of the orange pieces look tatty. This couples with the haphazard approach to their placement makes this look like you just threw them down rather than thinking about what a viewer may enjoy.

In summary this shot falls down on both technical and artistic elements and the score reflects that.

Feel free to PM me if you have any queries.

The colors have become nearly unreal.

The clarify, highlight/shadow adjustment, or Topaz treatement, really gives this photo a harsh feel. The saturation of blues and yellow/greens are over the top a bit also. Cute idea...just pushed a little too far in post IMO. Good luck in the challenge.

The orange slice looks as if it's dried up a bit. Also it is not too attractive. Love the greens.
