Could you help me with this?

Dear Bloggers!! Could you please help me on this one. This small painting I can't make my mind up over. Should I put it in the next exhibition or not?? The theme is "Gourmet Traveller" and I think the chopstick hand is wrong? What do you think?? Please leave a comment to help me out? 
Thank you!
