I really like this shot. I think it looks yummy and I think it's also well done.
The smoothe shiny texture of the jello seems like it would be difficult to properly light and look good. However, I think you did an excellent job with it.
I do like the lighting. There is only a small part that is giving off a glare from lighting, and that's to the left of the photo. Not an enormous problem, but something worth mentioning.
I like the idea of backlighting, I think that could be interesting. It could produce more dramatic lighting for this shot, and probably make it seem like more than "just a shot of jello".
Focus and clarity seem good to me. I have the hardest time capturing textures properly, expecially smoothe ones, and we get a lot of detail out of the jello, even though it is smoothe. We can see all the little cut marks and even a few bubbles.
The color is good. Definately green. Fits the challenge. I like how it's not all the SAME exact green. Probably due to the lighting, there are some darker places, and lighter places. This makes it so it's not all just one big blob.
Overall a nice subject for the challenge in my opinion.

Jello looks very hard to photograph, but you do it effectively here with your side lighting.

Gorgeous crisp focus, and the lighting is just right to show the translucency. There's no real central point in the composition or center of attention, but it's pretty enough I'll 9 it anyway. :->

I found my bath tub had plenty of room for lots of jello.

good choice of subject for the secondary color... the lighting seems to highlight the texture nicely... I think backlighting this would have created some strong contrast while keeping your color in the forefront of the theme also. = 6

this is a well done abstract. the subtle lines in the jello are well rendered

This shot meets the challenge well but isnít much to look at. The lighting is a bit harsh for my taste, and I might have gone for a slightly darker green to make it more appealing (personal taste). Exposure and focus look good, just needs more going on. I gave it a 4

great texture, no technical flaws... the subject however does not appear very compelling to me... - 5

Really like the tactile texture you've got in this shot - plenty of variation within one colour range too. Nice; hits the challenge right on the head too.
