    Re: green mango

    Is this the start of the food photography theme? Nice composition James, the decoration on the plate is a bit fuzzy, not sure if you did this on purpose to not distract from the subject. I would try it again with fewer fruit wedges. I won't comment on the topping until you tell me what it is, but the juice flowing down the side has a more appealing hue than what is shown on top. What type of lighting did you use?

    I can't offer any criticism of the photo James but I would be really interested in getting a recipe of the dipping sauce.

    I like the balance of colour and tone and don't mind the softness of the pattern on the plate. But, like Shadowman, I think there are too many wedges on the plate. I think the wedges laid out in a more organised pattern/shape would have helped the image. There's a certain formality to the composition, that is not reflected in the arrangement of the wedges.

    ps - and tell Grant he only gets the recipe if he says nice things about your photograph!!
