Taste ok if you like basil, but it wasn't a great success.

Added the basil too early I think, so it's just on top and I used a knife to get it out of the bowl, as you can clearly see :( Added the lime just for decoration. Made this photo in the evening and the basil leaves I wanted to use for decoration weren't very suitable for a photo anymore.

Anyway, I liked this photo enough to give it a chance here.

What about a light green background instead of white? Just a thought. I do like the clean white that you used, however. Simple presentation.

not sure what this is...but it is a little "beige/white" in color...

the lime came out well, the jelly blob, not so much.

Lack of detail and flat lighting keep this from being really great.

it doesn't sound like it would be good, but it looks pretty and that's all that matters :) maybe a couple basil leafs next to the lime of jelly might have added to this

I like it except the reflection on top of the jelly.

Nice clean shot ... find the the whites in the top somewhat too bright.

More a photo of food than one of cooking. I like the reflection of the lime on the plate, but I want to see more of the lime jelly.
