Ok, this one was meant to be funny. This is a not something homemade; it is a Hot Pocket - Pepperoni Pizza… if you could not already tell. I looked up the translation for “Hot Pocket” and got Casella Torrido, I hope it is correct or at least close. I hope it at least got a few laughs.

Cooking Directions
1. Unwrap frozen product and insert into crisping sleeve.
2. Place on paper plate or paper towel and microwave on high for 2 minutes. For microwave ovens that do not have a turntable, use a pot holder and rotate product ½ turn halfway through the cooking time.
3. Using a pot holder, remove sandwich from crisping sleeve and wait 2 minutes before eating.

that looks like one hell of a meal. my only suggestion would be to do a little bit of sharpening

One of my personal top three picks for this challenge. It is hard to imagine much that isn't great about this picture.

Good design of the food presentation, gives lots of interest and a range of colours that makes it look interesting

Only two things I would have changed with this image, the string of cheese on the bottom left I would have removed or cloned out and the DOF I would like broader, like not as narrow. Otherwise I think the color is great and I am now going to call Pancho's down the street from me to order a nice dinner.

Viva se colors!

This could be right out of the Denny's Restaurant menu. Excellent image, great composition, decent lighting, good combination of colors and a fine well thought out arrangement. One of the best of the challenge.

nice - i am a little nit-picky though and that torrido on the left has a line of cheese that distracts me - overall a good, well composed shot

Great levels and lighting. nothing glaring or over shadowed. A little more DOF to capture the cheese at the back would of added to this photo. The plain background was a good choice. nice composition.

oh yeah :) This is a great food shot! A minor nitpick would be the little string of cheese right at the front. Other than that I like the colours, comp and lighting.

Nice picture, but more DOF would have helped

Nice presentation and composition, would like to see a bigger DOF, but overall well done.

Cheese is annoyingly out of focus and overexposed.
