This is an image of jelly cubes taken in close up.

I first made a pyramid of assorted coloured jelly cubes, placed them on top of my makeshift lightbox then photographed different sections.
I used a cheap store brand and another well known brand (Rowntrees). I found the Rowntrees jelly cubes worked best for colour intensity and detail. The store brand was too translucent and lacked detail. In PS I cropped and created the border, some may feel the border too large, but in order to upload today I had to create the larger size.
No Jelly Cube was harmed in the making of this image, we used them all up afterwards as a delicious desert.
After many attempts, voila, the result, I hope you like it?

They weren't harmed - until you ate them, Amanda! This is an original idea and you made a good shot out of it. These jelly sweets have nice colours, and there is just enough texture on them to keep it interesting. I don't think the frame is disturbing, but the red part in the lower left corner is. I'd have changed that colour. Anyway, TFS.

bonjour Amanda .
Le travail est magnifique , les couleurs sont belles et le cadrage correspond très bien à ce genre de photo.
Belle image .
hello Amanda.
Work is splendid, the colors are beautiful and framing corresponds very well to this kind of photograph.
Beautiful image.

Hi Amanda, although I don't like jelly, I love the picture you made of it. Great shot !
Great framing !


Ingenius I must try this when I have visited the shops.

You are really producing some great macro shots Amanda. This is marvellous looks like coloured ice cubes. Well done.

J'aime beaucoup,cette réalisation, les couleurs,le cadrage est très bien également.
Real goor work, author.

I like the effect of the lighting through the jelly cubes Amanda. They have become so colourful. Cute idea, and a delicious one at that. Well done for your imagination. The vertical composition was a good idea.

Nice shot! You've really come up trumps here - the juxtaposition of all these vivid colours works nicely, and the almost glass-like transparency adds a delicacy to the image.

Whilst I agree with Frank/Dingo that the little patch of red in the bottom left is marginally distracting it's not major, I do think I'd try increasing the effective saturation a bit though - try using Curves (I'd suggest an S-curve: Two points, one on the low quarter of the line, one on the high quarter, pull the low one towards the bottom left, and the high one towards the top right - that should increase the effective contrast without blowing out any of the channels). Clever composition :-D
