    They look pretty good. Only the 5th one the whipped cream looks overexpsosed. I'm wanting an icecream now. If you are isolating these then you might try for some more lighting and a white background, otherwise the desserts themselves look fantastic.

    **EDIT: Oh and watch the focus near the strawberries at the front on number 5.

    Styling looks good, good enough to eat :)

    The lighting isn't doing it for me.

    Can you find a spot with natural light and use a reflector ?

    And drop the iso, the food isn't going anywhere...

    Cheers, Don

    Why are you clipping the plate in every shot?

    Dont cut off the plates. Also, lose the busy distracting plates in the first two. The clean white classics let the food shine better.

    To me, the whites are blown in every shot...not just #5...this ruins it for me and I would do a reshoot and put your LCD monitor on the "highlights" setting that way you can take a quick glance to see if you've clipped the highlights on the shot before moving on.

    1) All are overexposed
    2) You need more sophisticated lighting, with some light from behind to show contours. The main light appears to be too close.

    Watch cutting off the plate as others have said and try to soften your light some.
