Congratulations on your 7th finish. This is the kind of beauty that I must refrain from looking at....insulen shock. But it is so well done, I limit myself to small peeks. Great job.

this idea can come only when you eat too much chocolate - 10

I like the stream of liquid chocolate and the lighting that catches both sides of it. I also like the composition of it too. I'm not so fond of the chocolate bar at the bottom although it is well lit, but I cant explain why. Even so, it's a good image.

The dark background is lovely and I like the way the lighting picks out the stream of melted chocolate, then gently strokes the curves of the bar underneath, ending in shadow at the front, which blends into the background. I like the angle, making the light pick out the whole one side of the bar - making for both an interesting and artistic contrast and perspective to the whole image. I'm no photography expert, neither am I qualified to be able to make 'technical' criticisms, but I think the photo works really well. I'm undecided about the frame. Anyway - gets my 10.

Really nice. I like the composition ...with the stream of chocolate leading the eye. I also like the lighting on the chocolate. Well done!

Wow, that just looks great.

The texture where the melted chocolate meets the bar really make this one interesting.

good lighting - the highlights on both sides of the liquid really make it pop out from the background. 7

Nice lighting on the poured chocolate though just a touch too dark for my tastes on the bar. Nice composition. I want some!

Very clever. Nice lighting.

Superb sidelighting! I really LOVE it when someone breaks the rules and makes an image work. Your image is dead centered - a no-no, BUT this is the exception to the ruke. It should be just as you've done it. The black background is perfect. For me the thin brown line in the border is not needed. I expect this to be headed for the land of ribbons.
