Well I had done three other separate shoots for this challenge but wasn't really happy with any of them. Then, as we were eating this for dinner I realised that it was perfect for the orange challenge - I must have had orange on the brain when I was planning my meal! :)

This is actually low fat butter chicken, made with light evaporated milk. Each serving is less than 10 grams of fat - and it's really very good. You can find the recipe here: //today.ninemsn.com.au/article.aspx?id=605930

I absolutely love food photography and I'm a sucker for food magazines. I have the long-term goal of one day ribboning with a food shot, and although this won't be it, I'm going to keep trying. As ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' hotpasta has observed many times, food just doesn't score well on DPC. Might have to wait till another food-themed challenge.

I figured this wouldn't do great as like you say, food shots usually don't, but there's no way it deserved to score anywhere below 6! Clearly meets the challenge and a great shot to boot, you was robbed!

Looks like Chicken Tikka Massala to me. Nice use of natural light. Good pristine setting and overall looks appetizing!
- Back to bump this up.

One of my most favorite foods. Well presented too. ;)I like the choice for shallow DOF to emphasize the chicken, still having enough texture on the rice to show what it is. Excellent food shot. Now I'm hungry darnit! 8
