Man, for hating and sucking at set up shots, I sure have been doing a lot of them lately.
Didn't quite turn out the way I was envisioning it, but then again, I didn't spend a ton of time on it to get it right either. Not really sure how this is going to score, it could bomb or do well, I really don't know.
Lit with directional window light.

I think that people will likely feel that they are distracted by the bright background light (another window), but honestly it needs to be there for the tonal range of the image. I tried burning it, and it just made everything else look drab.

Great clarity on the bread. When I see a stock type shot, I always look for a bit more, something that made the photographer choose the shot. Sometimes, its fun to get a really high quality baguette, and some super chocolate, not too dark, not too milk, and just warm the bread, not toast it, let the chocolate sit for a while and then. perfection. also works with sesame seed crusted bread. But then again, Nutella and fluff works too.

I like the crumbs. Adds more realism to the photo.

I LOVE nutella! It's so... well... yummy! lol
Nice shot. Like the DOF. The only thing is that it seems to have a bluish tint to the bread? White balance a little off, perhaps? Other than that... love the shot... even the crumbs! :)
