Family a sweet life !
by: © Edward Teran
Eye-catching! I like the varied colours and textures which give a pleasing abstract quality underlying the design. I find the holes in the biscuits make a face which is a times a bit ghoulish and at other times quite appealing - intriguing... an interesting shot.
I love this shot! It reminds me of the British photographer Martin Parr's work which more documentary and humorous than this but nonetheless I like it.
Well framed, composition is good, nothing superfluous - just the biscuits. Obviously been cropped from the original and I think the cropping works well.
Use of camera,
Good exposure. Glad you used a tripod for this shot as it's a still life and therefore can only benefit from such a use.
F1.8 - again? Wondering why unless you had the camera on totally automatic. You could have chosen a higher ISO of 400 say which wouldn't have had too much digital noise but would have allowed for a slightly deeper depth-of-field. F1.8 is very shallow and although the shot looks alright on my screen I think it's a risky setting for a still life.
Lighting is even and only a soft shadow underneath the glass which all works well.
Thinking of a family get together is always sweet. This describes the different personalities each one very special and loved.

How to improve your photo
A slightly smaller aperture would have been better to give a greater depth-of-field - unless you only want a tiny portion of the subject to be sharp.
A zoom lens is not needed for a still life shot like this. A fixed focal length lens, for example 50mm, would have allowed you to use a smaller aperture.
Nothing else to add, just liked the shot Edward
