My foto shows the german "Currywurst" - the favorite meal of our chancellor.
It's made using yellow straws, ketchup, (yellow) curry and a yellow colored lemonade.
The pic is lightened by 2 150W lights in the normal macro mode of my A40.
It's the orginal image from the cam - no corrections by software!

Well, I have no idea what this is, but I really like the refelction of the light on the knife and the serated edge.

yes there is yellow, but with everything else going on, the color doesn;t really dominate enough.. and it should for the challenge... plus the knife seems to be the dominant figure and it isn't all that interesting... nice lighting and focus though!

An interesting photo. Lots of elements demanding attention from the viewer. There are so many different colors, textures, shapes and lines in this smorgesboard. My favorite elements are the fork and knife with the most alluring hue reflections. The highlights of the container are quite strong, plus a spot or two of glare from the sauce and bottle. Could I suggest photographing just a couple of these elements in a small group. To lessen the visual confusion and create a stronger story with just a few objects. For instance the fork, noodles and a touch of sauce. The wood board background is a great idea that goes well with the theme. I think the food against the wood grain without the gutter lines might be a possibility. You have the right idea to get in close and play around with the composition. Just choosing which objects to make your image say what you want is the difficult individual perogative. A good commendable effort. Please continue to enter in future challenges !

It's a little hard to understand, even with the title: uncooked noodles with curry-ketchup!?
What I really like is the sharpness and the clear, smooth reflection on the knife and fork. Also the composition and cropping is well made. The yellow on the lemonade and the noodles could be a tad stronger though.
Good luck.

Very nice image. It looks very well planned and organized. The color range of yellow is also very nice and adds a good touch ot the photo. Good job.

What? Looks like it's a meal of fiber optic lines or something. :) Is that food?
