Daily Deviation

Equality by ~VisualPoems "The concept is clever and well accomplished, the colours are great and the composition is perfect. " ( Suggested by cloduy and Featured by astridle )

Wow my first official critique..Here it goes....

The idea of this is amazing and even as a thumbnail image it stuck out to me. This is very creative and the composition has been well thought out.

I love the use of the word "equality" as a banner. And of course, everyone loves gummy bears! So it really gets the idea across. Especially that all the different colored gummy bears represent a different race.

The focus on this is great and I like the reflective table they have been photographed on. Gives it an almost studio feel which contrasts with the foliage background.

My only advice for this photograph would have been editing. The bears colors could have been more saturated to give it more of a 'candy' feel and I personally would have sharpened everything that is in focus (bumped up the clarity on Adobe Lightroom maybe.)

Overall a brilliant idea executed just as brilliantly. This photograph looks as though it could be used in some sort of equal rights campaign.
What do you think?

Iīll never understand photography properly,and I guess itīll ever be so with DDs given on it.Not that the ones on real art generally make much more sense when it comes to award V.O.T.I. ...sorry,itīs a cute pic and all and I donīt begrudge you your DD,so please donīt consider this hatinng around or so,but someone has to speak it out.

There are so many things about this that I love.
But the main thing has to be how the background looks blurred out giving the main focus to the surface & the gummies.

This is adorable and well thought. Spacing? I think it's better this way, it looks less "placed" and more like a sweety bear mob :XD: This is a great idea you had, and very well made, high quality. The light on the gummies is good and you can even see the little ripples on their bellies.

Heck with equality... the orange bears are by far the superior flavor, and the green ones go in the trash :-P
