This is a really nice shot of the food, but I keep finding my eye being drawn to the candle.

A very tasty looking dish and some nice ambience with the candle and wine that invites the viewer to take a seat and dine. One thing confuses me - I see the yummy mushrooms, the thin wafers of parmigian/reggiano cheese, and the colorful greens of the basil but where are the reds of the tomatoes? If it's the sauce then that is what it is, but all the other ingredients mentioned in the title are very visible which is what makes me think I *should* be seeing tomatoes in the dish. Two critiques on this composition - the reflection of the dish on the wine glass is a bit distracting - a good polarizer lens on the camera would eliminate that reflection. Perhaps a small spotlight shone on the wineglass could have also cut the reflection and illuminated that deep red wine in the glass to make the image even more appealing.

Romantic candle lit dinner. Looks fantastic. I feel like the plate may be lit a bit much, but that may just be my crappy work monitor, so I won't ding ya on that. :0)

Very nice presentation and the romantic mood created with the lighting goes well with your subject.

Well composed and great use of background materials for this shot. The lighting in the center of the food plate is just a little to hard. Maybe if the light source for the plate was just a little further back it would have diffused it enough.
