I set these chocolate pieces one at a time in the window. The first one was melting but not falling apart so I gently shook the tray I had them in and it kind of morphed into a puddle. Then the next one I shook a little but not as much as the first. And the third I put on the tray and started taking pictures. Transition of melting chocolate.

-Turned up the saturation
-UnSharpened its Mask
-Cloned a little white spot from the window and the tray
-Resized to 640
-Stroked its perimeter with a 20px Brown and then with a 15 px black.
-Saved at 149.2 kb just under the limit.

Nice idea, I would have gone from left (whole) to right (melted) though, I not sure why (perhaps it's a reading thing)

I don't really think this is a good idea for transitions. I also don't like the composition much at all either. Sorry.

This is a really good idea that I think could have been composed better. You get high marks from me for creativity.

very well done. entices emotions (had to get up and grab a piece of Milka w/ hazelnuts). However, window is slightly distracting, could have transferred the chocolates to a nicer background...
