Sourdough, multi-grain, classic baguette, and rustic loaf. Hungry yet?

Window light with multiple rectangles of black foam core eliminating spill, one white foam core reflector to soften shadows, two images focused near and far for focus stacking, then minor tweaks.

Bread looks yummy! Maybe a rustic background would of made this pop! Also Johanna was right, focus was slightly off on the bread.

Gave you a 6 but with a little extra oomph could’ve been more ;)

Thanks for the fave,

the bread looks lovely but there is too much black space for my taste. Maybe a more detailed shot or a bold crop might have helped?

SO nearly there in my eyes, you have a grain bread, a baguette, a more rustic baguette and a loaf of hopefully white bread. Perfect positioning on that brown table cloth, but it is boring. Solid black background, that could have worked. You have a loaves of bread in a basket that has no charm on a brown table cloth. Imagine, in your mind, this exact setting, then out a golden side dish of curled butter, some weeping Camembert and the stark contrast of a triangle of blue cheese, giving you the colour, maybe some grapes or vibrant strawberry jam. Imagine yourself in a French countryside, surrounded by weeping willows and a blue tranquil stream. Adding a boost of golden colour to the leavers on the table cloth, or boosting up the contrast or structor on the wicker basket. Bring out the grain in the loaves and basket in colour contrast. I am picturing myself in France right now. And isnt that what is supposed to be about. Having a picture that takes you places, out of your mundane life. Vote later for this,
