Complete Meal

By ellavr
This is number two in my chilli series. I liked this cos it is my idea of a real meal; chilli, lemon, garlic and pepper - all critical ingredients to Indonesian food!!

I like the vibrancy of the different colours and the composition of this.

I am looking forward to hearing from you - good or bad. :o)

In other words "The Spice of Life" eh?
Very good work, not sure about the warm tone though. Will definitely check back to hear other readers' views.

A good well composed image, nicely done.
I like the three grains of pepper on the lemon. Don't know why, but they make the shot for me.

My first thought when I looked at this photo was that it was too crowded and I preferred the previous one. But on further reflection I really like the compostion, with the burst of colour on the left fading away to a few peppercorns on the right.

Greetings from just down the road in Harpenden Smile

I love food photography, excellent your comments I once also shaved ALL my hair off, but was rather sozzled at the time and left little tufts of hair at the back where I couldn't reach, apparantly I made a right ass of myself...LOL

beware, there's often a tendency to 'over' expose still lives, good comp, click (*:*)

Thanks Kay, for your very kind comments on all my chillis.

Magda, the overexposure comes from PS, I wanted something really bright, but sense that I lost the red while doing it. Back to the drawing board (or kitchen bench in this case!!) Thanks
