    The mood, underexposure, lighting, and subject all remind me well of why sushi makes me want to throw up. ;)

    Seriously, though... I really think this shot needs more light. What was your goal with this picture? If it was to make sushi appetizing (or clearly recognizable) you missed it. If it was to make sushi creepy, you perhaps achieved it, as at first I thought I was looking at some sort of 1940's movie monster.

    I like the shot, but personally, I would also like to see a bit more light... and maybe even see how one looks with just a hint of the color coming through...

    Ohhhh it's sushi, I get it now. Actually, no, I don't.

    But I will say, when I saw it in the contest I instantly knew it was your shot. I don't know if that's a good or a bad thing.

    I'm not really sure what you were trying to achieve. The sushi is underexposed and looks quite unappealing. Were you trying to express a distaste for the food? Most times when food is the subject of a photo, I believe it is always better to make it look appealing and enjoyable.

    He's been asked to explain his thoughts behind his images and proccessing.
    He said he would.
    He has yet to do so.
    Until he does, I won't comment on them. I would suggest others follow suit...

    He could learn a lot more if he engaged in discussion.
    But whatever.
    He's already a Semi-Pro. He doesn't need this forums help.
