    Time value?

    Thanks. Not actually "on" the ice, but just on the other side of the plexiglass.

    I did take this photo tonight while the doors were open to the ice. I haven't really looked at my latest set of photos, but am simply killing time until the battery is fully charged again so I can take jet photos in the morning and roller derby photos in the evening... Hurry up battery!

    Happy B-Day ANP.

    I don't like as anything other than the sort of happy snap you would take with a camera phone send to a friend then forget.
    IMO the whole plate should be visible not chopped off at the bottom, the reflections at the top are very distracting likewise the glass or whatever on the top left and the cutlery. These type of shots the food is the star and in this one it's not.
    The subject is fairly ordinary the fries appear to be overcooked and the pile of stuff on the right is a mess, I can't even tell what it is.
    I think the white plate is a problem
    I would start with a much simpler food arrangement that was more visually appealing.
    Go down to Borders or wherever and spend some time looking through Gourmet magazine or other publications in that section for ideas.

    I completely agree with K1W1. Food photography is extremely difficult to do. Normally, they undercook the food so its more photogenic and doesnt look wrinkly, burnt, etc..

    I do think you could improve the shot but I also think the cook/chef could have done better also. The plate is dirty with a few black specs of something. Just over all not very appetizing.

    K1W1s suggestion to look at a gourmet mag is a great suggestion.

    Heck, I've read stories where they have even not used cooked food but spray painted it, i.e. turkeys, in order to be photographed.

    Here's a quick photo from today, must run now and shoot roller derby.

    i actually know nothing much of food photography, but i was walking around town snapping photos when i was calle dover by a few folks in front of a restaurant to come just take a few shots.

    I posted it, seeing if i had any positive direction just going off of nothing, and i appreciate the criticism from teh both of you, i suppose i'll go take a trip to the book store!
