Far too literal for me and why isn't the pie sharper? Nice colors.

the flash makes it look more like a snapshot than a well-executed photograph.

the idea is really promising, but there's a few things that you could do to make it a winner. The pie probably shouldn't be cut, its a bit gooey in the middle, the lighting could come more from the side, rather than the front, and the placement of the pie could be less dead centre. Only in my humble opinion, I wish I could get mine right too! Hope it was yummy!

Nice idea, but could have been shot better. More dynamic angle/composition, more dramatic/interesting lighting, and it would have scored a lot better.

One of my all time favorite songs. That, and "Alice's Restaurant". Good idea for this challenge. A bit more dramatic lighting and perhaps a less "head on" angle might give this a bit more energy, but I still quite like it.

Nice mesh of image with title. I think the lighting is where this could most be improved. It would be good as well to see more pie, less tin -- may be nice if the pie were tilted to face forward more.

If I remember the film correctly there is something missing from this shot:)

Better lighting would make this a great pic!
