Some basic edits done on Photoshop Elements. I wished I had more time to reshoot for the lighting I was going for. Added fill flash, unsharp mask, hue/saturation, auto-levels, brightness/contrast.

I like the idea but the phot has weak colors and bad choice for background, i think it would have been better with a darker barckground and a different tablecloth, at least ironed tablecloth.

Lots of these choices on this challenge. So far, this is the best detailed and best lit of all this type of genre. Very good job. For the amount of calories, I'd choose the whole salad, and about a quarter of the sundae. Best of both worlds.

Just a lttle dull. The background is dsitracting as is the paper tablecloth. Maybe with a different background and lighting this would have worked better.

iron the tablecloth, it ruins a near perfect set up.

I would maybe have had a plain background, but I would also go for the sundae everytime!

no problem. The salad first followed by the sundae! photo is sharp and colourful, got my interest but not enough to hold it for long. good luck

The decision seems clear to me - good points for that. The composition is a little bland and it seems like this was one of three or four themes that a lot of people tried to shoot. Have you tried to create a studio for shots like this?

Of the should-I-eat-healthy-or-should-I-eat-yummy photographs in this challenge (and there were many), yours is the best. The bright colors and clarity made this work well.

Seems I'm always forced to make this decision. Nice entry.

i think the background is too bright. it becomes a distraction to the two subject.
