Wonderful shot. Excellent story teling. She's caught mesmerized by the action of his blurred, working hands. Excellent use of available light. Great stuff.

I like the idea, but I can't get past the unnatural blobs of color, like the big green/yellow/blue light bulb blob. It doesn't feel intentional.

I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives: I really like this image, you've captured an honest and compelling moment. I also like that you've left this in colour and not been tempted down the monochrome path, ot makes for better exploration of the food! The light in the scene is great, offering bags of depth that brings the image to life, that depth is the secret to it's transportative power. You have a pretty large DOF here, no mean feat for an internal shot like this. This observing girl is well captured, I like the way she is leaning on the glass - simultaneously restive and intensely engaged.

Critical stuff: Although I like the lighting in the scene, I think it could be better controlled in the image, I think the blown highlights, especially on her face are distracted and could easily have been brought down under the advanced ruleset of a Free Study without affecting other areas of the image.

Overall: A very nice slice of life image.
