I'm not completely satisfied with this, but it was unfortunately the only idea I came up with for the challenge. I waited too long to take the photo, hence the giant, awful shadow. I was thinking that this was an Advanced Editing challenge, since I skipped the Balance one - but luckily I thought to check before using my edited version. Oh well. I'm sure the competition'll be too fierce for it to make much of a difference ;)

Editing: Curves, levels, resizing, cropping, hue/saturation, Neat Image, sharpening.

Wish I could buy oranges like this.
Very creative. Good compostion
Maybe the shadow of the plate is a bit too strong.

for some reason, i keep coming back to this photo. i would have liked it more if you had used a plain plate, or perhaps one that was a nice contrasty color to the orange, like blue. anyways, good idea and nice snap.

Whew! I almost did this too. I love Terry's Oranges!
Extremely well done.
I found a very quick pass of a lighter over the chocolate surface got rid of a lot of those crumbs and really put a glossy finish on it.

great composition and lighting. appears a tad over-sharpened, but all the same, a wonderful shot

Unnatural, indeed, but sooooo CREATIVE! :-) I love the vivid colours with the pastel plate, lighting is fine, wonderful sharp... definitely ribbon winner! I keep my fingers crossed for you! (10)

Great idea. The lighting is interesting and works well. I would have perhaps used a plain plate. The pattern does distract a bit from the main subject.

creative, and I love choco oranges during the holidays. tight crop on plate, a bit too much light from left side, maybe use a fill on the right to even it out a little? 6

Clever, clever - must have taken some work to put that together. Good composition - nice exposure. A plainer plate would prpobably work better.

Great idea...but I think this would have been more affective with a reddish orange background and maybe a yellowish plate to compliment the orange.

i see what you try to do.... but without a lot of photshop.. that look fake a7

It's not Terry's - it's mine!
Nice idea. The plate is disgusting (to me) and doesn't do anything for the image. I think it would be better to place orange and choc directly on the white surface.

I think the plate detracts, but otherwise I really like this!

one of the best lit entries, a plainer plate would keep my attention on your main subject. the orange peal on the side of the plate isn't appetizing and I think removing it would help simplify the composition.

Now I like this .. the thing I don't like is the lighting (the shadow), and the plate. I think a nice white or orange colored plate to match the orange/chocolate would mix well. Very clever idea.

Unnaturally weird! Nice job

i like this concept a lot, but the flowery plate detracts..... perhaps a dark background too add some mood and lighting to show the different textures of the peel and the chocolate inside. well done.

I would have done this without the plate, but it's an adorable idea.

Lovely composition. Only improvement would be the shadow on the right hand side. This is nice and I hope you do well. Good luck. 8 from me.
