    is it too glaring? because I wanted it bright and striking, but not sure if it will make people to feel uncomfortable to look at it.

    i think it's too saturated or over striking... to mi it's overexposed.... not pleasing to the eye. but other then that 2nd pic is interesting with the trail of sweets....

    and the injured fish is funny....

    How do you take these pics with the bright white background? What do you use for it?

    ah.. okie. note taken it's too bright already, actually over-exposed deliberately, but i guess it's no good for eyes will try to tone down in the future. hehe i play too much with the sweets and made it coating cracked, somehow it's part of the fish when i arrange them. so the idea. hehe..

    thanks all for your opinion. ^___^

    i used 2 table lamps and a piece of majong paper, clipped one part of the paper on a higher level something like 'L' shape.

    The first two photos appeals to me, oves the delibrate overexposure, Colour combination and DOF are very well organised and controlled.

    Nice one.

    I am not sure would it be better if (for the first two pictures) the fore-most coloured pencil and sunflower seed be in focus, and let the DOF take it away.
    Would create a "smoother" feel i reckon.

    just my 2 cents
