Simple, elegant and tempting !

Nice post proceessing, great textures and details.
03/15/2009 10:17:21 PM
The processing is nice. The presentation doesn't really stand out. what about a top view instead if that was possible ?
03/15/2009 10:14:06 PM
Interesting how the mundane can become art like
03/15/2009 08:23:18 PM
nice job taking something dull and making it pop
03/15/2009 05:22:21 PM
Nice crispy and elegant tones...looks like an wonderful place to dine!
03/15/2009 01:12:50 PM
just don't like the HDR look here
03/15/2009 12:27:26 PM
Simple subject but effectively presented. Has a strong feeling of anticipation.
03/15/2009 10:56:20 AM
different perspective, love the floor in this image and the processing of the image
03/15/2009 10:17:34 AM
Nice focus and lighting, you've made a photo of empty tables and chairs look very interesting.
03/15/2009 05:18:24 AM
this is so simple but great performed , 7 from me
03/15/2009 01:08:36 AM
lovely processing. this could be an ad for this resturaunt. very romantic feeling the viewer gets
03/14/2009 10:07:54 PM
I'm a sucker for dinning tables and dinning presentations. Haven't ever been able to figure out why. Maybe it's the lines and sementry that grab me - who knows. None-the-less this is a surpurb shot that tickles my eye. The chairs have a great color with a soft but rugged look. Once my eye makes to the floor, I notice these great tones and textures. Draws me in even more. My only suggestion would be to have the middle table in the middle of the back two. But eh, that's probably my sementry issue talking. =) 10 for grabbing and keeping me in.
03/14/2009 05:38:39 PM
wowee!! I'm lovin' this one! Take a simple subject and make it fabulous! 9
03/14/2009 01:03:16 PM
interesting treatment of an everyday subject
03/14/2009 07:56:14 AM
Interesting lighting, nice processing, crummy composition.
03/14/2009 12:36:52 AM
Excellent PP! 7
03/13/2009 07:58:48 PM
Nice lighting. Processing nears but does not reach looking overdone. It is a bit heavily centered though.
03/13/2009 06:26:26 PM
Nice post-processing, well done :)
03/13/2009 06:18:26 PM
The composition feels very cramped for me, but the focus and color treatment work very well, in my opinion.
03/13/2009 05:34:27 PM
Mundane, but not ordinary because of the wonderful processing.

Not voting yet.
03/13/2009 02:18:48 PM

Lovely tones, simple scene, nice shot
03/13/2009 02:35:52 AM
Great interpretation. 8
03/12/2009 10:30:13 PM
The tones here are really nice. I like the detail and the vignetting really isolates the subject. Great tile!
03/12/2009 09:05:28 PM
These types of images are always some of my challenge favorites. You presented the mundane and complacence of everyday life in a very interesting manner. Well captured and well processed.
03/12/2009 04:35:46 PM
We'll seat you now! I like this one.
03/12/2009 03:29:36 PM
Beautiful lighting and editing, but I feel like the stage is all set with no one to play upon it.
03/12/2009 02:25:52 PM
Very nice PP job just outstanding - 8
03/12/2009 12:47:18 PM

03/12/2009 07:19:17 AM

Technically well done, subject does really speak to me.
03/11/2009 07:36:45 PM
What time is dinner and what is on the menu?
03/11/2009 06:54:53 PM
Nice all the way around. I like the way the floor jumps out.
03/11/2009 06:39:42 PM
