Greetings from the Critique Club

I scored this one well in the challenge - liked it then, like it now. Very clever and very well lit to have the nice variations in the pinks. I like how it seems like you're almost looking up at the lollipop, that it might fall at any moment.

Definitely meets the challenge, excellent lighting as mentioned, very good detail, and well composed. Score is quite good in a very competitive challenge. I've been trying to think of something to tell you to "make it score better" but I really just don't see anything. It's perhaps not "omigosh!" enough - it's simple, well-done, understated, and for that, it scored very well here. Keep up the great work!

Back to comment. What I like best about this, is where and how you've placed the "Season 1" text. Excellent idea. The colour looks a little flat on my screen, but no matter, I like the overall subtle class in the work. Good luck :)

Volume #E75479 was great, so expectations for this one are very high.

I think it's a little too much pink. It's tough to see th etop of the lollipop. I think this would've been ten times better with a white background.

SO very neat. The Lollipop looking like a Mic. Nice addition of the Season1 text on the rim.
