Putting a fill light on the left would fill in the shadows a little and your key light is pretty hard. You could soften it up a little with a diffusion like maybe some wax paper and you'd still have some nice highlights that are a little softer. Nice composition and choice of colorful healthy food.

Needs more light in the dark part of the cluster of tomatoes. Peppers look nice.

A very good composition 8

Certainly fresh, colorful, and appealing. Perhaps a touch of fill/bounce light to lighten the shadows a touch?

It's a little dark in the courner, personaly I think it would be better if you'd be able to see all the bright colors of the vegi's

The vegetables ar cropped very akwardly here, centered or more to the left would have been more interesting.

Good lighting and composition. The veggies seems maybe a bit...."squished" in the frame to me and the plate is nearly invisible unless you really look, but otherwise very nicely done. 8

too many shadows
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/30/2008 03:35:47 PM
corner of the plate is little distracting and light on tomatoes is little less (don't see a soft light), otherwise I like this picture..nice job

the lighting is a bit off. The front is so dark. I love the water drops.

Lighting puts some drama into the vegetables.

Would have prefered a bit more light on the tomatoes

This a very good photo. I really like the subject matter and the colors. I do find it a little dark, however. Good luck.

needs a fill light from front left. crop s quite tight at top. good color. irregular frame bothers me.

Not bad - the shadows are a bit too deep, but I like that you positioned your lighting from the side. Excellent focus
  Photographer found comment helpful.

i would have liked more lighting from the front, this would have helped the colors show more
