|Greetings from the Critique Club:
Morning Treat was your entry for the 'Light On White II' challenge and it fits quite well into the given brief.
Your focus is spot on, as is the DOF which just starts to blur out when it gets to the plate. Lighting is superb, the shadows by the egg and also the plate are wonderful. Had the lighting been any harsher, it would have killed the image. It is a shame you haven't included any of the processing steps used as these really help other photogs reproduce similar effects. And they help when doing a critique as we can follow your steps.
This is the only down side of your image, to me and it is only my opinion, the corn does nothing for the image. It makes the image cluttered. I like the positioning of the egg and plate. Many would have been tempted to not include the plate and then crop tightly, your idea works better.
Taking the image as a whole, I think it scored about right due to the inclusion of the corn. The corn introduces yellow into the picture and seems to dominate what is a super soft image (not focus). The plate and flower in the top right corner is pure genius and would have a much greater impact if it weren't for the corn. I know I gone on about the corn, but it jars, it dominates and spoils a wonderful image. Try reshooting it, reproducing the original steps, but leave out the corn. I think you will agree then that without the corn you would have had a high scoring image that matched your other high scorers. I would like to see the reshoot:) I hope this is helpful and constructive.
