A shoehorn entry for the "Bread" challenge.

Post challenge notes:
Yes, it was me again. this came in around where I expected, but i got a lot of great comments out of it. This was a fun one. Look for more of my shoehorn when I can't come up with anything really good.

Several commenter remarked on a graininess or noise inthe background. That is actually the texture of the background cloth showing. Not much I could do for that in basic rules.

Added 9/18/09: Since this entry, I have learned how I could have fixed the grainy looking blue background under basic rules.

Hmmm is this the same infamous shoehorn that's surfaced in several pictures recently? Hope you had fun eating this sandwich :P I love the contrast of colors you have in this picture. The blue and yellow look great! Good closeup too. Good luck!

Technically this is a very good shot. Great DOF. Great lighting that shows off the texture of the bread vs the cheese. I am frustrated by only one thing, though - I feel like I have missed the pun or the joke with the inclusion of the shoehorn...What does it mean???!!!

Amusing. Blue background's got some distracting texture and/or noise in it.

I love the textures, the background not so much, but the colors are really good too. Very interesting photo.

No fair. You have bread in the photo, so it meets the challenge. Therefore, it's not a shoehorn entry. ;)

I don't know why i like this photo but I do - it's not so much what you've captured I suspect, more that I admire the skill you must have to capture it so well.. well done...

Not sure I get it, but it's a clear photo with good colours.
