Thought I'd play around with a food shot. Editing includes cloning/healing out some blemishes on the peppers, rotate, contrast and a slight curves adjustment. I did not bump up saturation. I predict a 5.3.

Hello from the Critique Club!

This shot meets the challenge very well. I like the combination of the green and orange peppers. The quality of the peppers is also a big plus. They are all very similar in shade and at the same stage of ripeness. Any blemishes you edited out were well covered. The composition is well thought out and balanced.

I do not care for the white background. Although I do like how it is not solid white but has a textured feel created by the diagonal pattern of lines. The main disadvantage of the white background it that it competes with the white labels of the two bottles. Especially the bottle on the left, it would be much nicer if there were more contrast between the label and the background so your eye could more easily see a clean transition.

I might also have bumped down the brightness a little. The light seems a little strong.

Feel free to PM me if you have any questions!

Nice arrangement. Might need a little tweaking - such as rotating the Tabasco bottle, perhaps. Maybe a black background would have helped boost the colours.

The composition is ok. The image quality is ok. The subject matter is ok. The creativity is ok.

Nice, sharp photo of chiles and the hot sauce they are made of. I appreciate the lack of fake-looking and irrelevant flames, puns in the title and other distractions from a straight clean photo. One of my favorites.
