These are sometimes called Mille Feuiles, loosely translated as a thousand layers. A puff pastry sprinkled with sugar, with a layer of a creme filling and a thin layer of jam towards the bottom. Yummy!

Setup was kitchen table, white plate, overhead flood and a side flood to bring out all the gooey jam :-) Camera on tripod and used mirror lockup. Stacked both the 10x and 4x magnifying filter on the 50mm.

Some pictures are like jokes, if you have to explain it, it kinda ruins it. In other words, maybe the image needs to give more explanation here.

Yum! I like how much details this shows at the edges, although I feel the depth of field is show shallow that I think it's taking away from more of the yummy details that could have been shown.

If you win, you must provide one of these pastries to each person who contributed to your ribbon, for now I want one! ;)

A little soft, but I think you did this in purpose. Only problem with that is it removes the effect of layering a little. 7
