Thanks for your votes and helpful comments!

This photo was taken at around midnight. The room was painted yellow and lit with compact fluorescent and tungsten lamps. It was intentionally set the colors to be in the afternoon near sunset hours.

The plate was somewhere out of focus and subject was unbalanced. DOF on the brie was uncontrollable, while the light needed to be dim to capture the bohkeh effect, which made it hard to distinguish the colors of cheese and wax. This even made color correction a challenge.

After cropping, post production included sharpen, lighten, apply image and color adjusted from deep red orange to pale yellow.

Yes, somewhere on the cheese is out of focus... I was hungry for the creamy brie and I got a little drunk from the wine. ;-)

simple yet classic setup... only wish the cheese would have a more natural colour

Lighting is off and the DOF is poor IMHO 5

The front of the wheel is out of focus, being the subject it probably should have been sharp. The plate/cheese is off-center. The colors and choice of background items are well done, and the image has a nice sense of warmth.

Nice product shot, good background, interesting colour contrasts. Spoiler is the brie not level, makes uncomfortable viewing

Needs a better focus. For this image, I would have liked to see just a bit more focus on the background, and crystal clear focus on the cheesecake.

The set up is nice, however, it doesn't look very appitizing. For one, a solid colored plate would have been more appropriate, I think. Another, I believe is the lack of lighting. Everything seems to have a yellow hue to it.
