Greetings from the Critique Club -

Let me first say isnt it awesome when we surpass our own predictions? You have an interesting concept here. Almost like a clash between the Mods and the Rockers.

The New guys in the background look great. The blur is nice and the lighting on them is great. The peas up front seem to be a bit dark or contrasty to me. A bit lighter and maybe a tad more color sat could have been nice. I also think that more space onthe bottom to balance out the empty space on top could have been nice as well. The crop on the bottom feels a bit too tight.

I think you scored about right if not a little low. But how can you complain especially considering how many 1s and 2s you recieved - an accomplishment in itself. Nice shot and good luck in future challenges.

Nice idea. I like the DOF. But I think the contrast is a little sharp. Still a god pic.

Even without the title you can get a sense of what the image is saying. Very clever, and well executed. Hope this does well for you. Good luck!

Nice focus and composition. Maybe bit overdosed with light or contrast.

vegetables gone bad, so sad ;-) clever idea, lighting on the forground could be better, a little dark against the pure white background.

This image has a surprising amount of personality. The title sets a clever tone to interpret the image. The lighting and use of DOF for selective focusing as well as the composition add drama quite effectively too. I like it alot :)
