Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

Story and recipe on my blog.

  • Thorsten Kraska 5y

    Intersting toning which makes for a very soft appearing. Maybe the piling of the cookies is a bit high and looks a bit staged. If one cookie would have been off the plate or beside the pile it would give a more casual feel to it.

    Thanks for the feedback, Thorsten. I was already late for work so I didn't play around with set-up very much, but your idea is a good one so I'll definitely keep that in mind for the future.

    How did I miss this shot..I have just seen it now!
    I like the dreamy tones of the image. No, no, not only the tones, but also the clarity ot better to say cloudiness of the shot is (no better word), dreamy.
    I agree to Thorsten about the piling, but still it is a nice picture.

    I like the pile. There is tension whether it will stay or fall down. It has a strong sense of material, it is concrete and tangible. The rest of the image is ethereal, so the contrast is rooting.

    I find the milk bottle and glass interesting. They look like plastic and dim. It adds a feeling that someone has been drinking from them. To me that counteracts the strong sense of the set being staged.

    The small detail of a gray chair is very good, color- and formwise. Also, it is very refine by design, perfectly complementing the set.

    Really beautiful image, balanced. Not an easy thing to accomplish with pink!

    love these pastel and soft colors!
    the composition seems a little bit formal - because of the cookies strict arrangement but anyway - looks so lovely!

    to be honest I am not a pink lover :), but yours grab my attention, soft and beautiful !

    I'm going over to the States on the 23rd, where are you over there? Do you get the Donna Hay mag's over there? :-)

    BTW, love this shot, already fave'd it earlier ;-)

    Oh how fun! Are you coming for vaca? I'm right outside of Washington, D.C. We do get the mags, but I think it's delayed by 1-2 months. The issue with the ice cream cones on the cover only just came out. I can't wait for the 50th anniversary one! Thanks re: the photo :).
  • Sandy 5y

    No, my Mum lives in upstate NY :-) So I won't be too far from you. Going into NYC for a couple of days too. I've had the ice cream cones copy sitting on my desk for at least a month now but didn't get it straight away either ;-) In her store they were doing a special for the 50th anniversary. If you spent $100.00 you got two free gifts, if you spent $150.00, you got 3 free gifts. And they were nice things like her tea towels & cooking aprons, etc. The store is soooo cute and gorgeous at the same time ;)

    Hi Xiaolu, just going through your flickr album. You've made a great improvement in food photography ! You produced beautiful light in every photos, great food styling and you're smart with colours combination.
    Soft pink in this photo is nice, girly. Love the chair on the background :)

    Thanks a lot Tika! I appreciate you looking through my older work and your kind words about them.
