That has to be the most perfect way to serve pumpkin pie I have ever seen. Minimal crust, maximum flavor, yummy. Loses a point for what looks like cool whip topping though... it has to be the real stuff for pumpkin pie!!!

Oh and nice shot :)

PS- I suppose it could be homemade whipped cream also... I'll forgive you in that case, but you can't have the point back, because I umm, Art lost it...

So what you are saying is, that you had a fantastic Thanksgiving celebration about killing the Indians and that you feel to express that feeling by eating a dead pumpkin? [shake head, shake head].

Congratulations on a tasty (great) photograph!!!

Good technique, esp DOF for the subject. The tilt helps.

Looks like a food ad in a magazine. :~)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice photograph with good depth and nice balance of colour, much better then a standard shot of a plate of dinner.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/29/2008 03:09:40 AM
Sweet shot! Still, gven that this is an "advanced" challenge, go ahead and dodge around the edges a bit to carry the lightness of the topping outwards. There is plenty of contrast and seperation in the food to anchor this shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/29/2008 02:56:17 AM
This looks really good. DOF is nice with good focus on the front of the dessert. Whites are the perfect white and your exposure is spot on. 9

Edit
Top three pick. Hope to see you on the front page.
