Sorry. I got a good laugh out of this (the idea of doing the dicing on the floor!).
Welcome to dpchallenge. I hope you'll submit many more pictures. This is a great place to learn (if you can tolerate the comments). One suggestion I got that was very helpful was to participate in the side challenges (see Community Forums). This helps you to get to know others, and get helpful comments on your pictures - since they know who you are, they'll try to be more helpful than judgmental).

you might consider cropping the trashcan out of the pic.

The trash can (and the background) seem out of place for this challenge as well as placing the cutting board on the floor.

And the trashcan in the back? This could never get used as a stock photo. It's just too cluttered.

ok...trash can in the background needs to go and are you working on the floor? Grainy and flat in color

The trash can in the background is a major distraction. Don't forget to examine the entire frame when you set up the shot.

the garbage can doesn't add anything to this photo
01/15/2009 11:32:29 PM
I think the inclusion of the trash bin detracts.

Too grainy, in my opinion. And the reflection of light from the fork prongs is a too bright.

Not really the best backdrop ... removing the rubbish bin would have been good ... and a more plain background overall really

i think the garbage can in the background distracts from the picture

adventurous 'wild card' of a shot - good luck

IMHO.....I think that your background would have been better without the trash can

Very grainy, and not sure why you chose to do this on the floor, with the trash can in the background.... Not very appealing.

It's cooking but the bin in the background detracts from the onion.
