Great bow! It's perfectly in focus... It does seem to leave the candy in the dust though... and it's a Sweets challenge...

Still... I really like this image. It's perfectly composed.

Concept is "ok", but the candy is playing second fiddle to the bow in this shot. Don't know that you could do it much differently while keeping the candy in that wrapper.

Nicely wrapped. The bow is very much in focus... which I think takes away from the peppermints. But it's a nice photo

I think the background is too bright.causing the subject to be dark. Not enough light on the subject and the glare on the bag is not good.

I'm drawn to the bow (obviously) more so than the sweets... and the crop doesn't really work for me personally, too much "nothingness" in the top half, with such a high key
