      I like the dof and the texture that gives a good idea of your innovative recipe. The styling is nice. What about a tighter cropping? I think it would have made the image look more deliberate.

      Thanks for the suggestion, Laksmi. Is this better now?

    7. Laksmi W 42 months ago | reply

      Yes, to me it looks better now, but of course it is subjective. I would still tighten the cropping to get rid of the white corner, but that's just me :-) I have issues with diagonal lines :-) Among other things! In your image I feel "the missing corner" is unnecessary and diverts the attention. It makes me want to copy the beautiful wooden surface and paste it over the white space :-). The image would be more contemplative without it. Also, it's absence would give strenght to the little details like the lines on the wood.

      Thanks, Laksmi. I stamped out the white area instead of cropping it (I don't like to zoom into my food too much usually). Hope you like it even better!

      Is the stamp the clone tool in Photoshop? It works wonders, I see. Have to figure out how to use it and start stamping my pictures!!!

    12. Xiaolu // 6 Bittersweets 41 months ago | reply

      Yep! Though I usually prefer to stamp in RAW format, the Photoshop one works okay if you play around a little bit :).

    13. Laksmi W 41 months ago | reply

      Which program are you using for processing RAW?

    14. Gourmande in the Kitchen 41 months ago | reply

      Okay, now I want to know what the image looked like before the tweaks! lol

    15. Xiaolu // 6 Bittersweets 41 months ago | reply

      Laksmi -- I'm just using Digital Photo Professional (the program that comes with all Canon dSLRs) for my RAW editing.

      Sylvie - Hehe I just cropped some and stamped out where the board ended in the top right corner. The main part of the image wasn't changed much.

    16. Laksmi W 41 months ago | reply

      Ok, I had that program too but never got into learning it...There was another Canon program that came with the camera but I couldn't figure out the difference :-) Too many things to learn in this world. I'm pretty satisfied with Camera Raw. It is simple enough. Photoshop is pain in the grass. I guess one could fine-tune images unlimitedly with it.

      Yea I think your images are already perfect -- no need to mess with them more =). There are certainly limits to PS hehe, but I try to restrain myself before going anywhere near that far. It's easy to keep picking away at the photo for far too long. I try to keep it fairly close to the original shot to be honest.

      I politely disagree with the first sentence, with the rest I agree :-)
