From the Critique Club:

This is IMHO a perfect example of a technically well done shot that didn't score very well in the challenge. You have good DOF and focus. Your lighting is very nice. You have a nice white background but a little bit of grey around the base of the peanut butter cup. Your exposure is a touch off. The frosting on the peanut butter is a little blown out losing some of the detail. Well thought out and executed.

Why didn't it do so well? I think it is because the overall impact of the shot is a touch unappealing. I don't understand the reason for putting the jello inside or on top of the jar. Green 'peanut butter' makes me go eeewwww. So though this shot is well executed, it's not the kind of shot that scores well in this medium called DPC.

Nice idea, arrangement, and composition. Too bad whipped cream is blown out, and more DOF, especially for foreground, would be better.

Disturbing, the whipped cream is overexposed, and nothing here looks like Jello, green or otherwise (unless you used Jello Pudding?)

Fun idea for combining pb and jello and nowhere near as nausea inducing as some I've seen so far. I think the blob of jello on the jar was one detail too many. It doesn't make sense and it doesn't add to the composition. This leaves something to be desired in terms of exposure and image quality---the jar looks nice and sharp and the color is good, if a bit contrasty but the desert dish is out of focus at the bottom and the whipped cream blends into the background and it is too contrasty. Also, the color of the peanut butter is off. What I'm seeing in my viewer looks more like nutella than peanut butter. It is way too brown. It looks brown on the label of the jar also. Overall, a nice effort.
