Had the idea on a boring drive after a pretty good day, heading for an evening with a bunch of these guys and a decent bottle of wine, and just couldn't get rid of it. And since it turned out somewhat along the intended lines, I thought I'd throw it in...

Just some daylight from behind (mainly messing the exposure up), and the kitchen light from above.

This reminds me of The Little Mermaid and the French chef who is trying to kill Sebastian. I like the warm tones. Perhaps trying it with the crustacean more to one side rather than in the center?

Title's cheesy but fun :) I really like the subject matter you chose to shoot, cool idea. There's a dark yellow cast over it all though, that spoils it a bit. Maybe play around with white balance/colour temps to make it more natural?

It looks underexposed and there's just too much going on in the background. I do like that the focus is on the lobster.
