*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

An interesting image that is assumed to meet the challenge.

What beautifully marked crabs these are, far too lovely to kill or eat! As regards the image itself, I think it lacks any impact it just feels a straightforward record shot of a box of crabs and thats it. We don't need to see any of the box itself by homing in on one crab with crops of the others filling the rest of the frame you would have been making something that can be much more appreciated than what you have here. There is some lovely detail on the crabs backs and the gorgeous colouring of the legs is just crying out to be emphasised.

Thanks for your submission, apologies for the delay, Sid

O wow. I would SO have cropped out the container to only show these gorgeous creatures. Amazing colors

Steam those puppies! Smother them in Old Bay! Turn them red! Crack them open and pour yourself an ice cold Natty Boh.

Very detailed and sharp, fitting for a photo of a bin full of creatures with sharp pinchers.

Best shot hands down.
My favorite thing in the ocean all around to catch and eat.
Just perfect.

Looks like a snapshot I would take showing my friends how many crabs I caught. Would have really liked a well composed shot of one crab on the deck of the boat or beach (where ever you were when you caught them) compared to this.
