One of my tens this week! I'm sorry I didn't get to comment on it, but I voted fairly quickly. I was very impressed with the obvious effort you made to make a square of four squares, etc.. makes me hungry too.

Hey CJ --

Err, I was running late.

Wow, what a great picture. It will be a real pleasure to critique this picture.

Technical - camera.

I can't fault you there. Your skills are great. Color is good. The range of colors that you are showing here is wonderful. The focus is good.

Tehcnical - post processing

The colors of food is very hard to get right. You have come very close. Definitely much better than most restaurants who dare to put pictures of their food in the menus.


I really do like this arangement.

All the work that obviously went into this picture. I looked all over for these square dishes and couldn't find them. Good for you.

I think that it would have been voted higher if you had taken this picture from directly above looking down. It would have lent strength the square arrangement and it would have given more impact upon the voting public.

Once again what a pleasure to critique your photo.

You did 3 times the work the others did. I personally like the fact that your background is folded to where the creases make squares also. Others will probable tell you should have been smooth. To me it is carrying the square theme further. Nice clear and colorful photo. Well done.

A very professional set-up. I think the lighting could have been better. I like how you arranged the tablecloth.

Nice idea. It looks a little underexposed though. The shine on the spoon is a little distracting. 6
