mrmut: NASA chosen Nikon. The price doesn't mean anything up there, only quality and reliability is important.
People used to brag about their Omega watches as "Nasa's choice" for space missions.. Once I tell them Astronaut Gene Vernan wore a cheap Lorus Mickey Mouse watch to space they shut up. All Nikon fan-boys should shut up about Nasa as well. Any camera would make it. I have as many broken Nikon gear as working.
The monks would approve.
Way too overexposed, the cheese ends lost all detail.
Switch the wine and apple, add a right side fill light and checkmate!
Half the picture is someone's lower half. Get creative, change your point of view, and crop!
I like your idea....nice crop and change in perspective.
Way too many reflections in the glass...10-12 with the naked eye make it look like occlusions.
Interesting perspective, I give you props, but the crop isn't tight enough, lighting is inconsistent, and carpeting makes for boring background.
Shutter was too slow for the light blurring your image, and that smudge on the table is brought out by poor shot composure (you took in a big, ugly reflection).
Very intimate feeling from this shot.
Yeah, this is quite dark. No dynamic range, very greyish. I think if you would of changed your white balance, to something that would of made it more yellowish/warm, and back-focused to the front of the white cheese, instead of the top center it would be much better!
I like the Bokeh, very smooth, but it should fill the background full-bleed.
Strange colour tones. Not very realistic.
Since you had time to soften and dodge the skin on his face, you could of flattened his right ear.
Venetian blind lighting looks great for 80's girlie mags...and should be left at that.
Is every shot in this gallery only going to have a half-lit face with one light source? Sheesh.
Whitebalance! Whitebalance Whitebalance!
