Thank you all.
What have been actually hard to set up was the right light from the sun almost at sunset, gived too much transparency or too many shadows.
And endeed placing that prezzemolo (can't figure how do you call it in english) leaf with the wind turning it all around.
I like this shot but I do agree with you, fork is just distracting and out of focus.
Bye all, see ya in next challenge.

Good color, exposure and choice of subject, though I'm not sold on the centered composition- it's kinda' static. The "spray" of pasta makes me wonder if you could have created a bouquet of some sort. The wooden fork seems out of character for some reason- you might have been better off without it. Still a good job!

normal food but a wacky setup. Nice light, I like the transparency and shadows, really creating depth, and also the red and green. I think a more attractive colored background would have improved i.

I don't quite understand how this is "wacky"
09/30/2004 02:01:15 PM

Nicely done. I really like the clarity and the color of this. One of my favorites of this challenge.

The lighting and textures in this is very pleasing to the eye! I think the ingredients, however, compliment each other nicely...but not in a wacky way.

Great job. Lighting is nice and so is the composition.

I could see this decorating the wall of an italian restaraunt. Good work.

This kind of pasta is 6 inches long, not so common unless you are in Italy.
Beautiful colors and compositions, congratulations.
