Greetings from the CC, well certainly an on topic subject. My immediate thought is that if you had cropped along the right side of the microwave you would of created a very interesting perspective looking into the microwave, focusing the viewer on subject a little more. I think I would of also cropped a little off the bottom to add to this subject enhancement. I think the light inside the micro really helped keep your shot from being underexposed inside the microwave. Your choice of having the popcorn spill out is very nice as well. Perhaps a little steam may have added something to the feel of scent. I likfe the sharpness of your shot also. Keep up the good efforts.

I can smell it but is it buttered?

As this image gardually appeared on the screen, I really liked the tight shot of popcorn. Then the long expanse of table appeared, and the popcorn really seemed dimineshed. I would have liked a very tight corp on the edges of the microwave and the front kernel of popcorn, without the empty sides or foreground.

I think this would have looked better had you filled the frame more and came at it from a different angle, so it wasn't so centered.

Great picture and I can smell the popcorn already. In my case I can smell the burnt popcorn. I like this photo a lot. Good composition and good thought as to how to portray your thoughts. I was just wondering if there was some way you could have triggered the microwave to think the door was closed and turn the light off. It is a little disturbing to what otherwise is a great photo. 9

nice composition and lighting. but a little bland, on purpose?

Microwave seems a touch tilted but other than that, the composition is great - I like the space left around the top edge and the wide expanse of work surface, exaggerated by the low viewpoint.

The problem with not reading the manufacturers instructions seems to persist with all appliances or electronic devices.

Good idea. I love the smell of popcorn as long as it isn't burned. I like the way you got the reflection in the door. A little too much counter in front of the popcorn for my taste.

Unfortunately, this looks more like a snapshot than a photograph. Evokes a sense of smell, but just not an interesting composition.

This is certainly smells delicious. Good concept and smart use of the light from inside.
