Hi from the Critique Club!

Oh great, I have to critique an image that made 6th place!

Well, this truely is a great image. The colors are great compliments with each other and the focus and clarity are right on. Also, it has peas in it so it definitely fits the challenge hehe! The placement of the peas on the chopsticks is really fun and enjoyable. And I usually don't like borders but yours really does add some elements here, it gives a bigger push toward the feel of zen and all things Asian.

Great job on your wonderful photo and top 10 finish!

If you have any questions on with this critique you can just PM me.

Interesting. The peas look like bugs. Very nice composition and I like the border.

I like everything except the background color here. I don't like this aggressive red color. The composition is pretty good though.

Wow how pretty! Who'd have thought that a photo of peas could look like this! I am totally impressed! 10

Absolutely love the lighting here, that touch of backlight is just fantastic. That with the red backdrop, especially the thin line showing between the sticks and the diagonal tilt of the chopsticks themselves... intoxicating!

Edit to correct two typos which were annoying heck out of me!
