How cute! I love the idea. Being July, the winter-themed packaging seems a little out of place, but I love everything else - the cropping, the focus, the title. :o) Very nice shot!!

I like the way you have created motion here. Nice job. I did my shot with lifesavers too. You know what they say about great minds....

Cool shot and idea. Nice movement capture. The background is a little drab (doesn't really add to the image IMHO). I know this is a really picky detail too, but I wanna see the LIFE SAVERS lettering on the mint right-side up. Overall good entry. 6

Hilarious! Always wondered how they did the lifesaving gig. Now I know! 8

You did great on the motion effect of the lifesaver. i am very impressed. There just seems to be a pink hue and a general haze over the picture, especially in the background. I can't help but wonder if this would be better in B&W with an adjustment in contast to bring the lifesaver out more. Just a thought on an already well done photo.

So far, my favorite of the challenge. Only wish it were larger and with a bit more light on the front of the wrapper.

this is fun, I like the use here, but I like the use of the lifesavers more in the "Heroes" pic...very interesting imagery there.
