i thnk the dof is a little shallow, great shot, but if you bumped the f-stop up to 4 or 4 or 5.6 i think you may get a better shot?

Great shot none the less.

I like the colors and lines and the photo is very nice....

even though this is not a critique thread I would suggest putting the focus point slightly higher. My eyes are drawn immediately to the slightly sharp area on the green candy just below the center of the shot, even though the sharpest point of the shot is at the very bottom on the pink candy. The grey in the top right corner adds nothing to the shot but I cant help thinking it would be better without.

As others have already said.... the shot is very good and my comments are in no way meant to take away from the nice work.

Okay Jeff and Widowmaker....neither of you need to apologize for your critiques. Forturnately I haven't decided to start chomping on those lollipos yet....so if I can get some time Friday I am going to try and reshoot them. Widowmaker I see what you are saying and Jeff I am going to try the different aperture.

Thanks to both of you for stopping by.
