I took these today.. and in the second one it looks like the plate is levitating. The first one isn't as sharp as I would have wished... but I still like it.. makes me salivate!

DD, I really like the composition andsubject of both of them - but the highlights look washed out in both to me. That's OK, tho, because fruit is fruit is fruit and is usually the first thing I go for in a picnic setup. :-)

Yes, the highs are a bit blown out, but both are nevertheless really fine pictures. What you might try, and if your camera has the ability,is to underexpose whatever is getting hit by direct sun. If your camera has exposure compensation, dial it down by a good two stops. I've occasionally found that even -3 stops is necessary.

I'm weird in that I actually do that - read the whole manual front to back (actually if I get bored in the middle I'll start at the back - of anything - and work my way up) adn try everything. Invariably, I find if I do that again in 6 months, there are "new" things I find. I know; I'm weird. :-)

Mmm, great picture Ames! That is what I should be eating right now, instead of my peanut m&ms.... Oh well, gotta live a little!

So what if the highlights are a little blown, I still think it works. And can be easily fixed. *wink*

Love ya girl!

Great composition...the splash of colors is great too

Especially nice is your implied outdoors lunch!

You have a very healthy diet, Discodudette!
