AWESOME! Thanks for all the wonderful comments everyone! This has been an exciting week.

Just a tidbit of info...besides a bit of tinfoil used to prop up some layers and a skewer to keep it all still, this hamburger was entirely edible. I actually ate it after I finished shooting. It was cold but still pretty good.

Been meaning to comment on this for a while. I thought this was just an awesome shot - quite tasty looking. The lighting is perfect - I need to learn how to do this. Congrats on the ribbon!

It's funny how your best and worst rated shots both have buns in them....;-)

Great detail. Nice close up. A little crop off the top would have made it perfect for me. 9

Dying for one now!! Looks scrumptous ...

Excellent work! Perfect for an add. ~10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/19/2007 03:57:23 PM
this one is nice....ok the good points are that the food appears fresh and looks like its styled a bit (thats nice). what could have been improved is (my 2 cents worth) is the composition. i would prefered the sandwich to fill frame in the landscape orientation. anyways a good shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/19/2007 01:08:22 PM
Why can't I get a burger that looks that good.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/19/2007 10:53:04 AM
Great Pic! Captures the real meaning of "Fast Food" I like the DOF, and water droplets on the tomato and lettuce! 10 :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/19/2007 09:53:44 AM
Good if not great lighting. Nice job and now I'm hungry.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/19/2007 12:27:44 AM
this is one of the more appetizing shots... plus is that an American flag behind it? Nicely done shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

very well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/17/2007 12:42:40 PM
Way to fill the frame! I like the water detail, light reflection, and use of the cheese angle. This is a very tasty picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/17/2007 01:26:20 AM
Delicious! 8

08/16/2007 03:20:33 PM
Nice dof.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/16/2007 10:38:21 AM
If only it would look that good in reality :) very well exposed. the water drops break the otherwise even surface of the tomato
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/16/2007 09:48:15 AM
Yummy!!

beautiful colors and detail capture
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/15/2007 07:55:12 AM
Well thought out, good moisture on the tomato and good looking lettuse, cheese is melted just enough, and you even paid attention to the BG. Good job at presenting an ad, 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/14/2007 11:34:22 PM
Mmm - appetizing and American. =D Nice lighting, fresh-looking veggies. Maybe a bit close up, but generally well done. 7.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/14/2007 06:48:42 PM
My favorite burger picture so far. It's nicely focused with the front of the burger getting the focus it needs and the bg blurred. The water drops make it look very fresh and the lighting highlighting the top and filling in the side works well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/14/2007 04:50:22 PM
This is a great product shot...the moisture on the lettuce and tomato add a very nice touch. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Perfect fit and photo for theme. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/14/2007 02:51:06 PM
could def be on an ad

08/14/2007 02:15:12 PM
wonderful detail shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/13/2007 09:10:55 PM
Wonderful colors, focus and detail. Looks good enough to eat! Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/13/2007 07:20:52 PM
Nicely exposed - nice gleam of water on the tomato and lettuce. I;d buy it.
One minor point - the lower left corner doesn't seem as sharp as the rest of the shot. Did you crop it from a larger frame ?
Well done ( now I,m hungry)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/13/2007 05:36:38 PM
Nice capture...might have matched the title better if the flag wasn't so blurry. Just nitpicking there.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/13/2007 05:26:19 PM
Oh man! Looks like a poster ad. I have to admit, I was afraid there would be no way to make a photo of fast food interesting or unique. It just goes to show you CAN take a rather boring subject and photograph it to perfection and make it awesome! This is really perfect. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/13/2007 04:47:52 PM
now this one is really getting close to an actual advert
there is the unnatural water drops on the salad ingredients
it actually looks quite appetizing
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/13/2007 04:26:17 PM
nice closeup
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/13/2007 03:33:28 PM
This is almost the only burger in this challenge that looks good enough to eat.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/13/2007 12:42:37 PM
Nice crisp image. Can almost smell it. 7 psart
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/13/2007 11:30:04 AM
Very nice closeup. Good lighting and it even looks tasty. I like it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/13/2007 10:33:28 AM
Nice twist on the background to reflect the american flag, excellent macro!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/13/2007 07:21:43 AM
I can't say it's appetising, but you've done well with the colours here. Maybe a polariser or bounced lighting to dampen those highlights?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/13/2007 05:05:11 AM
good detail, crop and color, looks tasty. well done.

Perfect looking hamburger for any menu! Nice job.

08/13/2007 01:23:21 AM
Nice crisp details, and I like the American Flag in the background. That's SO what American is all about. Yummy greasy fattening food.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/13/2007 01:09:52 AM
food is tough to shoot! I like the simplicity of your shot. Well layed out, good colors, light.

very nice macro with a good BG
