Well, this is just a great macro example - it is something that you wouldn't normally see up close. The close-up really adds a lot to ones appreciation of the subject as well which is something a good macro should do. You notice the texture right off.
That is a great score too! I actually think that the lighting could be a little more even. The dark shadow in the upper left is especially noticeable. Although, the directional lighting probably does help with the 3D effect of the texture.
You got a lot of feedback already so I don't think there's much more for me to add. Great idea!! Focus seems a tad soft in a couple of areas - such as bottom left corner.

I think you can tell a lot about the quality of a food photo by how hungry it makes you. My stomach is growling when I look at this. good work!

good white and chocolate scene, good light and good focus, but I feel a bit lazy

I thought this looked pretty silly at first. I've reconsidered. The contrast between the marshmallow stuff and the background and/or chocolate is great. The texture is fabulous. I never would've thought to do this. what a great idea - 9

I don't know what a chocolate cream bun is -- never saw anything that was called that, anyway. Whatever it is, you've made it look ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS here! Good job!

love the lighting how the chocalate stays seperated from the dark background. I have been trying to figure out if there was a way to accentuate the nooks and crannies of the ice cream in the foreground,

Definitely a macro submission. Texture and color accuracy here are excellent. So is the lighting.

I'm not sure I like the bg color, but I'm not sure what I'd use there.

The lighting on this shot is perfect... the angle of the light accents the textures nicely... it also makes me hungry :) = 10 - setzler

Oh thank God, a decent photograph. Might be a little over-exposed, certainly some of the white has flared out. Really captured the texture though
