My first challenge with my new love, my Nikon 17-55mm f/2.8G lens. If I could marry it, I would.

This photo came from my original idea for the Fruit and Vegetables Challenge, which I never got to submit: ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/55000-59999/57775/120/468739.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/55000-59999/57775/120/468739.jpg', '/') + 1) . '. I'm developing quite the winged food portfolio. = )

This wasn't my favorite photo out of the series, but I got talked into submitting this one... hope it does well. My favorite shot was this one: ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/55000-59999/57775/120/569172.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/55000-59999/57775/120/569172.jpg', '/') + 1) . ', which was the original shot I took of the hamburger.

This was a time consuming project, but I had fun with it.

I cooked and assembled the burger, stuck wings in it, set up my lighting and photographed it in a light box, then post processed the burger in Photoshop, printed it out, cut it out, realized that the wings looked like crap when printed out, so cut off the wings and stuck the real wings onto the paper burger, hung the burger print on the outside of my light box, rearranged my lighting, used my remote to take pictures of myself posing with the burger, decided I looked terrible in every pic so cropped out everything below my eyeballs, and finished post processing.

Whew.

make us want to make a midnight food run!
Your shot should be suitable for an advertising campaign.

Not even!

Congrats on the ribbon. Your image reminded me of one I did awhile ago for a challenge. Not quite the same but similar.

Oops had to fix the link, man it has been awhile since I played on the site.

Judging by those eyes I can't believe your comments that you looked terrible in every picture. Great idea for a picture.

Cows were no doubt horribly abused in creating this image, and rightly so, but where did the wings come from? Please don't tell us that the burger is actually fried angel body parts. Any hopes for our future salvation as ribbon wanna-bes are then dashed....

Looks very tasty, and Fast! Let me know when you do Buffalo Wings with wings. All you need is some wings and a Breeeeze and you're flying. It doesn'r look like a cutout and it's eye catching as demonstrated by the model.

This would make a great photo for an ad campaign...congratulations on winning the blue ribbon!

I LOVED this photo in the challenge, and had a feeling it was going to be gracing a blue ribbon under it when it was all said and done. Your hard work and attention to every little detail sure paid off. A most deserving blue ribbon! Congratulations!!

Clever shot...nice composition. Clean and interesting photo. Not to take anything away from you but this was a really weak challenge. This should be a ribbon winner no problem.

Bravo. This could be an ad for one of the burger chains.

Great idea would have liked more color in her face though, she seems over exposed. Maybe a tinted background would be more effective?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

thank god for your entry (hehe) it's great!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/14/2007 10:04:34 PM
the flying-burger with Pegasus wings - cool. perfect technically and composition. If I really had to critique: she's all so slightly looking past the burger not right at it. But that's only if I had to make a comment:)

Fun view of the burger - the wings work here. To me the connection to the burger and the girl is a bit weak, and the composition isn't very strong. However, for an ad, the negative space would allow a great place for copy.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/14/2007 06:27:00 PM
Creative and delicious

08/14/2007 06:18:53 PM

Good attempt at an interesting product shot...although the wings are washed out against the background.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/14/2007 02:43:46 PM
This is another shot what would work great for an ad campaign.

very cute, nice comp. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/13/2007 07:14:38 PM
Like the concept. Good clean background - eyes nicely focussed on burger.
I like the crop (although I'm sure some people will say they would like to see more of the face - I personally think it works).
Well done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/13/2007 05:59:59 PM
Just voted on everything. I have to say, this is the best. There were a very few that really truly looked "suitable for an advertising campaign" and this is the best of the bunch. I think the other ones look suitable, but not great; this one looks great for advertising. There are a few other images in this challenge that I think visually appeal to me a little bit more, but I can honestly say that I hope, really and truly, that this one wins the blue ribbon.
