Now why change a good catchline? It's now 'Make the Most of Your Break.' If it ain't broke don't fix it in my view.

This shot could have been much improved with two main changes:
1) Off-centre the main subject - the tip of the KitKat (perhaps showing a length of the stick receding)
2) Get in closer with less background - and retain perfect focus. If focal range is too short, pull out and crop the rest away. There's some nice texture and that there KitKat and it's a shame not see it more clearly.

Good macro with extreamly shallow DOF. Still the background distracts a litle since it´s such a high contrast. But the idea is fine and pretty well performed.

the bighter oof areas overpower your main subject making the shot a bit too blurry for my taste.

A lovely effect but the silver shining in the middle in front of the chocolate is distracting.

Too much extraneous stuff, in my opinion
