Re: MRE's For Lunch

That does not look delicious. The way the guy is simultaneously straining towards and away from the food, gives the impression that he's hungry enough to almost not care. (it may actually just be that hes being careful not to drip food on himself, but the impression is more emotional.)

You've caught the main subject in an expressive moment, and the background figures are mostly supportive of your composition, but some of the placement could be refined a bit (see my comment on 1drey's 'pipers' image above to see what i mean). Overall it is an effective photo.

Dont worry too much about the cameraphone quality. Its true that in an ideal world, the sky wouldnt be blown out.  But the expression of the subject, for instance, far outweighs any technical virtues of these sorts of pictures, usually. (also, if you have an app like camera + or many others, you can control the exposure baseline better than the built-in camera in most cases-you might want to experiment a bit.)
