Looks like those eggs and peppers (jalapenos?) have been in the jar since 1924!

Interesting shot. A bit too busy past the jar.

The motion blur ruins it for me. It took a moment to figure out that the lower hand was holding a paper towel or napkin or something like that with some stuff from the jar in it. The upper hand is almost out of the picture and doesn't connect visually to the jar. I agree with Don that the background is distractingly busy; shallower DOF might have helped.
