I'd have liked it if the diners were less blurry.

First I'll have you know that I was looking up book titles from the challenge to see if they existed....and I found out that there is a book and from there it went to Youtube to see Heston's creation of Alice in Wonderland's Drink Me potion. That was the beginning of the end of me voting for the next 2 days while I enjoyed the crazy and fantastic show of his...and of course the fault of pointing me in this direction is all yours:-) :-) Love what I saw just wish there was DVD's of this show. Just wanted to thank you for getting me hooked.

O.K. enough of the ramble. This shot attracts the eye's attention for it is definitely on strange/surreal side because we have a feast but then there is that menacing pig mobster with the gun in the back. As the viewer we wonder "What the????" I like how you are 'recreating' the show's aspect of a themed feast here. I think that the picture could be far more stronger if the food and guests were in much sharper focus. The guests and the fruit/bread centerpiece is rather soft and a touch out of focus. Tripod and higher ISO and shutter speed might have been what you needed here as that I am guessing that it might have been a slow shutter speed and that may have caused it to be less in focus due to camera shake. Another small suggestion: a letterbox presentation could also help strengthen the photo composition. The reason is that there is a little too much empty 'black' space in the upper 1/4 of the photo that does little to complement the scene. Placing the main subjects/composition in a letterbox/long rectangle format would cut that dead space out but also mimic/compliment the rectangle shape of the table - this is where the feast begins and it would be a subtle way to keep the viewer's focus and attention on the action happening here all the more.

Cool picture. Great idea and nice setup. I think it would improve the photo a great deal if the people were even more out of focus or maybe totally sharp. Seems too in between right now. The table is a bit slanted and I think it would have more impact to crop the right side making the composition more centered. Nice job.
