Looks very tasty and very visually appealing. The image is very clear, the detail on the leaves really stand out. The lighting on the lemon cup is also good. The background fabric is a good choice, it offers a nice range of colors without being over the top or too distracting. I've seen this use of dof in many cookery books, and I think it works well, however, initially my eyes didnt seem to like the dof on the upper crust of the first bread slice. Very well presented.

Yummmmmmmy! Gimme! ;) This is a good overall shot, the round cup, the square plate the lighting is well done. The table cloth is a bit distracting but not too much. An 8 to start but I'll be back.

The upper left angle is a bit dark for me, but the shot in general looks very professional... good luck

Good setup. This looks very nice. I do wish the bread were a little more in focus. The cup and contents have good focus, though.

Beautiful presentation. I love how the background colors mirror the subject.

More depth-of-field to keep the Spicy Pumpkin Bread in focus throughout the composition would have improved this shot in my opinion. And perhaps a spoon on the left side of the Fluffy Lemon Cup? Looks yummy for sure!

I love the colors in this shot, but the bottom-left black area is distracting. And a little more DOF would have been better so that the entire dish and bread (both pieces) are in perfect focus.

As beautiful as it must taste!

I would have liked to see tighter focus on the 'bread', so only a 9. Very nice otherwise

I like the green cup - lighting is good.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/16/2003 02:38:05 AM
Yum! Great color, the lighting is good too. I like the fact that the lemon cup is mostly in focus, but as a personal preference since the bread is an important aspect, I would've liked the bread to be sharper as well - the focus over there seems to be on the powdered sugar bits on the table 6

Focus is a little soft on the bread...otherwise very nice!

if there was more depth of field, this would have gotten a 10.. 7

I see you have a nice camera. Very nice shot. The lighting is wonderful. I love the suttle colors. Vote 9

Great depth of field. The green glass really adds a great touch of color to the shot and helps the main subject pop out of the shot. I like how you were able to capture the shadows of the cream , gives it fluffiness. I also like how you sprinkled the powder sugar(?) in on the plate .
