The final product for this shot was not what I had envisioned. I wanted a shot of a greasy hamburger on a fancy plate with small garnishes that would show a contrast between the two food styles. Somehow, running out of time, I decided on a roast beef sandwich instead. It doesn't evoke quite the feeling that I had hoped for, but still a nice shot. I'll save the burger for Fast Food II.

I didn't do much work in photoshop for this one. There was a natural vignette that I intensified slightly to help focus on the subject. I also made minor level adjustments, but other than that the shot is directly from the camera.

Good layout and colour but the foreground lettuce is distracting.

I like the angle used and the colors are great.

Im not to fond of the angle, I would have preferred a shot looking down at an angle on the sandwich, so then you can see the whole plate dressing.

if you take out the tomatoes and the onions, then I would say it looks good enough to eat!!!

Nice rich background - compliments the food. Simple statement - says it all.
Depth of field could be a little wider - lettuce at the front not quite focussed.
Good concept, good shot. Well done
