Could use a little better lighting. It's a little uneven so some food such as the paprika are underexposed while others are pretty good. Also it feels a little on the yellowish side like maybe the white balance is a touch off. Interesting foods, but not terribly high on the wackiness scale, really.

I guess this is not wacky in Iceland. Except for the language barrier, this could be a scene from my kitchen counter. Lighting and pixel quality could use improvement. Very international flavour. Thanks a bunch.

Just looks like a counter full of food.

With composition, simpler is usually better. You have a good idea here, however, I think it's a little too cluttered. Also, the white balance seems a bit off.

well, I guess this can be funny to non islandic speaking people...but there are other languages then english.

the picture is interesting however, the white balance is so off....it kills it.

not sure whether this is wacky, seem to be lots of very common food ingredients. Also I find the image rather dull, everything just spread out, flat light etc, nothing special. 5 for now.

I would have definitely corrected the color cast...

I had a friend who would bring me candy from Iceland...yummy!
About the picture, I'd work on the lighting
