    For my mom's birthday because she smells of lavender and apricot and gave me a love for pastry for which I am forever grateful.

      Interesting diptych. Although you can see "more" of the dish in the left photo, the righ one is much stronger. It has three things. 1st an interesting detail in center: the silver sprinkles, which are a nice anchor point. 2nd focal plain and DoF let stand out the glass so well. The circle acts like a kind of framing for the panna cotta. 3rd the wonderful light on the apricots, which let stand out the orange so well.
      Beside that I like the composition made by circle, square and line much.
      So, composition wise, the right one is much more interesting. The left one is showing the dish and the food presentation much better though.
      So, an interesting diptych combining a food showing photo with a interesting composition one.

      Great diptych! I especially like the left photo where the pannacotta looks very appealing and delicious. I do struggle a bit with the silver things on the right one, as to me they look like a few tinfoil crumbles... But that could just be because I have no clue what it really is...:)
      Together they go really well and I like how the right spoon seems to point to the left dessert..

      Beautiful diptych. I also like the beautiful lighting on the apricots. The relatively flat/dull color of the backdrop is a great contrast to the vibrant orange and really makes it pop. I love the two different camera angles - combined they say a lot more about the dish than either would alone. I think the silver leaf is interesting too - but I don't think you need it. Did those pretty jars come from France? I have jar envy!

      well. this sounds delicious, and looks the part, too. i like the different views here, and the lovely play between the orange and green. great soft green hue, btw. cute that you chose different spoons for each image. i agree with that you don't need the leaf. nice idea to pursue, though.

      i really love the diptych too. both show different views of the panna cotta and the colour combination is great. i love that greyish green which reflects the green of the pistachios and contrast the brilliant orange. the circle within square also works as a nice geometric detail. =)

      those jars are yoghurt jars right?
      i'm trying to collect such glass jars too! =)

      Ditto everyone above. I think they have said it all. The spoons are great! I have spoon envy.
