Hi, just popping in because you ended up on the same page of results as me and your pic caught my eye :).

I like the concept, I also like Marmite but I'll let that slide ;). I don't think your background is doing much for you here and so I'm not sure why you shot at f/22 to get it so much in focus. I would be tempted to move the objects a bit closer together, and get the camera a lot closer to make them fill the frame more, and then shoot with a wider aperture to throw the background out of focus. Such shots definitely go down better around here!

the light tile made for a very poor background, especially when combined with the light color of the wood.

Just in case, I don't want to try it!. Since the subject is small, may be a closer shot could improve the composition

I had no idea what marmite was so I looked it up. Ewwwwww! People eat that?

As for the photo.......a bit of a stretch for this challenge, maybe if you had shown someone eating it with a bad expression it would fit better.

Could have edited this better. I don't like the background.

Interesting shot, well composed, and well executed. However, without the title, I can't see linking this to hatred just by looking at the photo. Maybe if you would have included more content or a more explanatory photo that told a story rather than went along with one.

Love it or hate it? I personally quite like Marmite, but daughter loathes it!! I really like this, I thinks it sums up hate (for some!!) quite nicely!!

I'm not sure I quite see how this fits the challenge... I'm so sorry! ):(

Otherwise, this is a fairly decent shot.
