Sigh... Interesting image, the crop is better, and nice bit of editing... fits perfectly. I don't know either book, but the titles fit. Nicely done and processed.
Sweet... I think the chocies is an excellent shot, good take on the theme. I have to admit I wasn't sure whether they were oranges or apples, they look quite red on my laptop. I like it though, excepting the tight crop on the LHS which you know about
Secure... Great idea, fits perfectly... the edit stands out for me. Spot on.
Industry... Love the gritty, industrial feel to the train shot... that's my fave of the two by quite some way.
Root... interesting... I like the processing on the crisp packet... Elements 10 has some great tools in it, not found that on yet. Not so keen on #2, the cropped carrots feel wrong to me... sorry. Of the two veg ones, I think the last is the best although perhaps a little tight on the lower carrot. I prefer the crisp packet to be honest... but they all fit the theme nicely.
