I'm not sure if this completely falls under irony, but I find it so when people eat huge amounts of fatty foods.. and drink a diet soda pop. Not to knock it, I like good food myself but I do wonder, what's the point!?

Nice idea for a shot.

First, this is much too blurry. The red in the background is pixelated and at the base of it it appears to be glowing blue. (Caused by over-sharpening?) The line created where the red ends and the white begins 'cuts through' the picture - right through the Coke and the wine glass. I believe the crop could have been made better by including all of the spoon, the fork, and the wine glass.

Nice try, though.

I personally don't care for the red in the background, also the photo seems to have too much going on it it, too many items.

I like this, it's making me hungry. I wish the plate was a little more in focus though.

ha ha, this is very typical of a lot of people. Nice set up, it tells a story.

Lovely concept -- I see the irony here -- could use a great epth of field which would make the plate of food be in focus as well as the DC.

This looks too saturated and over sharpened. the overall set up could use some work too. Put the items closer together and crop in tighter.

Why, Yes it does! Or Diet Pepsi! Not sure about meeting the challenge subject and the plate is fuzzy, don't know what is on it but it's not very appealing, you would need diet something to wash it down, LOL

Lighting, colors, and focus need improvement.

I had this same idea (only I was going to put ice cream on a bed of lettuce). It is always good to watch your caloric intake when your meal already contains your daily allowance of fat! Not very good focus in the foreground.
