    ummm.... I'm feeling this is more a shot of the strawberry than the cake. It's the focus. But, I don't think I'd like seeing the berry soft.

    When I look at the table cloth and the berry, I think you could stand to focus just a little deeper.

    I take it you're not working with a view camera.

    Can I have a bite please?

    I think it looks great. Have you ever done a defog on any of your pictures? USM at around 20/50/0 maybe...I'd be curious to see what this looks like with that applied.

    The only thing I would change would've been to have the scoop of ice cream in front, under the mint, between the two pieces of "cake." Otherwise, it looks great and could be in a cooking book or a restaurant brochure/menu.

    Well, the main thing in this plate was the cake. The icecream is just an add-on to it... a Nice to have... jajaja. If I get the focus all the way to the cake the strawberry would look strange. I had to decide what to focus in that moment so I did it in the strawberry. I got other shots where I did the focus in the cake and the client didn't like them... you know that sometimes the clients is the chief... jajajaja

    Thanks for your opinions... keep them coming!!!
