I think this picture would profit from a higher angle: it would add some perspective. With the low angle you chose, the ingredients are too close together for my taste - much of the vertical space remains unused.
Also, a softer light source and a dark background would have been great here. 8.

My only suggestion would be a less "busy" background. I love the contrast high color levels.

Excellent lighting and exposure. In some ways I like the backdrop because I think it adss a "homey" feel to it, but in other ways, the texture is a bit obtrusive. It doesn't bother me in the bottom half (where they sit). Perhaps if hte ingrediants were pulled closer to the camera, and away from the background so that the depth of field obscured it, it would be better. Also, the composition seems a bit flat to me. Maybe if you played with the arrangement so that the ingrediants were at different heights, etc, and led more "front to back" rather than "side to side."

Yum. Flan... I would have picked a different backdrop. The embroidary is distracting to the picture, where I feel the focus should be the ingredients, not the background.

It's not very interesting, creative but I don't care too much for it.

If your title wasn't there, I wouldnt have known what all that stuf was for. Nice picture...but lacking in self explaination.

I like the way it is composed, almost clynical, but could be more interesting with less white at the top.

Beautiful image, Well lit with great textures. The composition is a bit too balanced and static to my taste.

I like this, its has an old world look to me, the lighting is a little bright, but affective. Good job

i like that you put thought into this. good composition and lighting. a plain sheet would have been better, imho.

I could see this in a cookbook, cropped a bit closer.

Great idea. Good use of tablecloth and the earthenware works well. Perhaps the milk could have been in a clear bottle rather than a pyrex measuring cup.

I like the background choice. For me, it lends an "old world" charm to the photo. Nicely done! 9

nice still life. the lighting is very even and focus is nice and sharp!

The background isnt very interesting and takes up to much space. A couple of wrinkles and folds would have improved things for me.

Good colors. The background looks a little weird...

Nicely lit for magazine article, the composition seems to have lost some of the potential impact.
