I would just like to tell you that you took a very very cute photo here. You also did some lovely post-processing.
I love how clear both mushrooms are, and it really does seem that they're interacting for me. Call me crazy, but that's what I think. I also love how you made some hearts bokeh in the background. It adds a really nice touch.
There's clearly a lot of technique in this shot. I love the colors, and how the background isn't in focus. The lighting is wonderful, and the mushrooms have perfect positions. That little logo on the top looks nice as well.
This is a very cute piece!! Let me go into detailed reasons for my ratings:
Vision - This is an adorable idea, and I can see your vision shining through this. It's just a simple idea that brings these little guys to life, and I absolutely love it.
Originality - It's more or less representing an idea that's already been posed through the Super Mario Bros. games - the mushrooms emerging from the boxes. However, the idea that one is a little more afraid than his brothers is rather cute and original. It gives them personality, and I like that.
Technique - This is done beautifully! The figures in the front of the shot are so crisp and clear, and they really pop against the out-of-focus background. The small, blurry hearts in the background are a nice little touch that brighten it and give it life. The figures are also perfectly placed and they really make the whole idea behind the piece show through.
Impact - While it's a cute idea, it probably won't be something that I'll remember for a while. It quite literally doesn't impact me very much (but I suppose that's just me. It might impact someone else a lot more and it might stick with them. Different things have different meanings for everyone, so it's hard to critique impact). As far as the message that you're trying to send with the piece, it definitely leaves an impact.
Overall it's adorable, extremely well-done, but it doesn't leave a huge impact. I like it
