      A dramatic light, the image is very cinematographic. Because of the direction of light, there is a strong movement, too. Looks a bit different in spirit than your previous pictures. Quite interesting interpretation.

      Lovely photo. Little unsual dark colors for you, but I like it a lot. The greyish wood adds perfectly to the green.
      The funny thing is, that I just want to prepare round stuffed zucchini :)

      Thanks all for your comment. I like dark backgrounds and moods a lot more than all whites but seems like blog readers don't respond well to these. They like high key pictures.
      They both have their purpose but I like richer, darker tones better. I like to mix and match as much as possible. It's not like I never do darks now!!

      I don't know. I personally prefer darker colors. It has more meaning for me, something I can relate to. They also carry more feelings, and moods. It is interesting, you really think that blog readers don't respond well to more complex images. I wonder why that is... could be what Laksmi said, it is easier to look at those shots without feeling?

      Helen, I like the richer and darker setting here much. That you now find more high keys on blogs is an actual trend which can change easily in near future again to darker photos. But we are all waiting for summer and sun light and maybe that's why one likes more high keys (as also mentioned it). I like the broken and muted colors much, because they have such a nice aerthern feeling.

      I like this composition because although the food takes only a small area in your photo it is the focal point. First because it is perfectly framed by the plates. And second, you have a very stong descending diagonal line form upper left leading directly to the food. The kinfie in upper left acts like an arrow pointing to the food.

      I agree with what you and and have said.
      High keys are easier to comprehend at first and easier on the eyes. I think regardless of summer or winter though.

      You're going to smile but I thought I was done taking pics as a storm was rolling in and it was started to get dark and rainy and moved the tripod away and stood at a different angle overlooking the plates (I had shot them straight on, 3/4 up at that point). I stopped myself dead on and said "that's it! Forget everything I have just done!"

      Happens sometimes...!
