I learned a lot while doing this shoot. I've never really done any photo's using our light tent so this was a first. Most of my photography is live animals/people or nature in the great outdoors. I had a lot of fun doing this, however this was not my original idea. I wanted to do the typical M&M with a Skittle shot (or vice versa) however I didn't like the way any of them came out, so I went with this.

I'm not sure how this will do, but I'll be happy if it gets a 5.0. I did this more for the learning experience of using our light tent and the fun. A couple things I did learn, I still have a lot to learn about lighting and be careful with hot lights and anything plastic!

****OMG!! WOW a Fave!!! Wow this did a lot better than I thought it would thank you all for your votes and awesome comments. Oh and sorry about the ugly peanut :). I had a bag of peanuts and I just took one out shelled it, next time if I use peanuts I'll make sure it's a sexy one LOL.

I like the title, bonus point for you. :)
I like how it seems to be lit from the top and bottom, one more bonus point for you. :) 8

A lot of people went the M&M route, and I like the different way you've done it. Something about the lighting (they're on a lightbox?) makes the M&Ms look like the balls in a kids amusement. 8 for now.

Very funny. I wish you had used a sexier peanut ;) The few holes where the backlighting is uninterrupted are a bit distracting. Overall very affective. So, did you get that peanut by eating the rest of an m&m or did you have an unadulterated peanut supply at your disposal?

This is great. Its something I can relate to, and it involves peanut m&m's, which are my passion in life (well not really, but are still delicious). The border is a bit too thick for my tastes, 10 pixels is usually enough--8

Neat Idea - It may be a little too much softening for my taste though. Nice shot none the less

Puts a smile on my face. Like many other food and object photos in this challenge the idea seems common but to relate it to a human experience takes my vote up a notch.

Nice arrangement of m&m. I like the glow from the bottom.

I have seen a lot of these shots in the challenge. I like your use of light from underneath, and of course the nakedness!

LOL!!!!This is too funny! Great color.

LOL. I like the colors, and I like the light from below. I think the peanut needs a spot light from above. Also I think it would help if the peanut was on one of the "rule of thirds" power points. It seems a little far to the left.

Nice idea. Maybe more accent on the peanut would bring out some impact.
