'Recipe'

2 rashers of bacon
2 sausages
1 egg
baked beans
fried bread
Toast
Cup o' tea


Not the best picture I have ever taken...and I still don't understand why it looked like I had the perfect DOF but when I got it on the PC more than I wanted is actually in focus :o( I am hoping this will do better than the 5.52 I got for this shot in 2006...

However, as I am not toally happy, I don't hold out much hope :o( Sorry in advance to my Olympic Team mates :o(

Nice work talj :-) I can't believe you were apologising to us - this is great! I think the DOF is fine, and the crockery is cool :-)

all that would have improved it is having something like salt and pepper mills in that gap at the top *runs and hides*

Excellent image. Congrats on 12th place, Natalya.

Woohoo, 12th!!! Would have thought an easy top 10, but a very strong finish all the same girly. I know, maybe it's because you left out the salt and pepper grinders?? LOL. Congrats!

You've gone a long way my friend. The difference between the 2006 shot and this is like night and day. This is an excellent culinary shot.

Congratulations on a VERY nice finish!

Nice shot, Natalya! I'm not at all surprised this one beat the other one by almost a full point. The brighter lighting alone is worth a higher score. :)

This is just wonderful and I almost want to reach out and eat it all except for the baked beans, as we call them '@#%#' beans.

Yummm! Gotta love breakfast!

Interesting perspective. The lighting is a bit flat but it kinda works in a strange way.
07/22/2008 04:56:15 PM
Looks delish!!

Now, this I like! The image is clean, crisp and appetizing looking, also very good colours. In fact, it's the first image that has made me feel hungry ;-) Hope it does well for you.

good composition, arrangement and lighting...the text on the plate doesn't go well with the shot.

I'd prefer a few more beanz (If it were my breakfast).
Nothing wrong with the photo - good luck! 8

I really like this, but I am not feeling the border, maybe it shouldve been thinner and gone all the way around 7

Hmmm looks delicious! I don't like the distortion from the lens though that's putting the mug at that angle and also making it seem larger at the top.

You know what this picture needs? I reckon it needs salt and pepper grinders sitting somewhere in the middle between the tea and toast. ;P

just a bit less brightness may have looked better for me.
