I don't normally have this much pasta at home, I went to a bulk foods store and bought a little of each. Then I bought the tray, it's meant to hold candles. Sorted it all out and took the photo in my dining room.
Not totally happy with the clarity. Because of the large size and detail in the pasta, I had to save it with more compression than I normally would.

Well put together! I would want to make a macaroni sculpture out of that stuff.

Took another look at this one because of your new ribbon winning version (congrats on that by the way). What struck me about this image is that there wasn't a single vote under 5. That's quite an impressive achievement! Even the 3 ribbon winners ahead of you in the pasta challenge did not manage that.

This is such a great poster, I guess its too un-conventional to ribbon, but a great simple photo for pasta lovers!

good attention to detail. would sell well as a poster. if the lighting was more even it could be a great stock image too

Nice attempt & good crop but the image doesn't look tack sharp with a little less exposure.
