This was a very good idea, but very hard to pull off without specialized equipment: light box, lamps, special lens, and of course Photoshop. You can accomplish good things without all the equipment, and this is the place to learn. Enter often, try new things, read the forums and tutorials, and don't be discouraged. Most importantly, have fun.

It's not very sharp and the lighting needs some work. The subject is almost on the thirds intersection though. Much better than centering it.

I like the title, I think the light could use a little work, maybe even just a slight levels adjustment to brighten the highlights.

Technically it fit's the challenge - it just short on 'Wow' factor.

The colours black and yellow really ought to go together very well, but I think the vibrance is a little diluted by the amount of white space we see from the surface below. Good try though

Original but not very inspiring!

The lighting seems a bit harsh, probably b/c of the refective rappers and glossey plate that they sit upon. Maybe diffusing the light and using a solid white non-reflective background might have given this a softer appearance.

you idea is good but I think it might have worked better if you had filled the frame with tootsie rolls and eliminate the white plate.

The composition could have been better if you could arrange the Tootsie Roll nicely to form a pattern. This looks like a mess.

lighting is exceedingly flat
white should be white not the gray it is

i think the composition would have benefitted a more natural randomness. like throwing up the tootsie rolls and letting them fall as the may. then placing the milk duds per the rule of thirds as it's current placement feels unnecessarily awkward to me. finally a white balance adjustment or contrast boost would be cool to brighten the pic as it looks a bit drab at the moment. just a personal opinion...feel free to luge on my profile page.
