I like the setup. However the reflections hurt and top table cloth is too much in focus. Good shot

There's something wrong with the light here but I'm having trouble with what it is. It seems well lit and dark all at the same time. Perhaps use auto-levels in your graphics package to see if that improves things. Anyway - it's a good subject matter and I love the tablecloth. Really gives it an old feeling. - floyd

Why the top angle?

The colors on this seem a little muted, they do not "pop" as I feel they should. I am not sure if you did this intentionally or not, and its just a personal opinion.

Yummy looking. This is well done. I like how you have 2 big plates and 2 little plates. The lighting and placement are great. There is a glare on the large plate on the right, but nothing too distracting. And there is a wrinkle in the tablecloth. Other than that, you have a really great photo. Great job and good luck in the challenge.

This is a nicely done image... I definitely like the subject matter... The top down view seems a bit strange to me though... I would have preferred to see a lower angle photo... this particular view removes the sense of depth from the image... it becomes more two dimensional in this perpsective... - jmsetzler

Original idea. Composition - layout of objecrs on table, not too exciting. Paper serviette cropped off at right. Because of pattern on tablecloth perhaps needs to be shot from right overhead in order to get those lines accurately horizontal and vertical within the frame. Or muss the table cloth up much more so they are deliberately off the vertical and horizontal. Colours a little dark.

This photo seems very dark and under-lit. If this was afilm shot, i'd almost say it was underexposed. It ruins the whole effect. 3 -lennier

the food looks like the table cloth--get more detail and a better focus--might need better lighting

I like this idea a lot. I like the perspective too. However, I would say it looks a little dark. Perhaps more lighting?
