doesn't really have that wow factor. I would have removed the wrinkly ones in the front. I Like the idea of melting butter but would have been more impactfull if it was more melty if that makes any sense.

Lighting lighting lighting.... flash is too intrusive. What you needed to do here is have a really steaming hot bowl of peas at the ready, use low diffused or window light (probably to the right), black background, plonk the butter on, step back and take a nice shot of the butter melting as the steam curls up into the air...

Having said all that, I'm terrible for not having enough light in my own shots!
