this is next in series of posh nosh - lobster - i think most people would class this as posh nosh - ive never really fancied it myself but then i dont really like fish.

We had trouble trying to buy one as not many people sell them - Selfridges in manchester sell half ones - believe it or not the only place we found that sold them was Bolton Market.
Then we had to find someone to cook it.

We put honey on it to make it glisten and then once we had photographed it we gave it away to member of family who ate it.

aNYWAY constructive criticism always appreciated.

regards ian

Yea - services available here too - can't afford to buy them. Superb shot and I like the idea of honey. Posted a mod where I tweaked levels and curves - see what you think.

Must admit, this is how I like to see quite a lot of wildlife...
The cold background works well, really sets off the hot red.
