Photographer’s Notes
Shot something appropriate back in June for the Local Flavor challenge. It would have been easy to reshoot that, but I tried a different French bakery called Aura Bakery. Carlos did the honors with the Latte. And the croissant’s even better than the French Bakery nearby. Not interested in repeating myself if I can help it.

Critique Club Review:

Color Saturation and Hue: Colors are realistic

Brightness and contrast: image is mostly well lit, the lights on the croissant are a bit hot.

Focus and depth of field: clean and sharp

nice clean sharp image, the crop could be adjusted to center the plate perfectly inside the border.its a nice setup up against a nice backdrop.

Congrats on your ribbon Doc. This really does look good on a cold rainy day, or any day for that matter.

So... For the really important question... By the time you finished the 7 images, was the coffee still hot enough to enjoy? One of my favorite images of the challenge.

PD: shot in raw ? It's going to be fun uploading 7 originals for validation


7 x 40MB originals took awhile. I hope this will be a counter example to all the 'bad HDR' photos folks complain about.

Nice foam skills. I think I would have enjoyed this image even more with a different background.

create design captured in the coffee, background did not appeal to me and the white lines were a bit distracting.

Great exposure and beautiful perfection in the sharpness and beauty of the objects. The composition would benefit from rotation IMHO.
