It works for me Jane! As far as food being a part of our lives, it's even more so when you are preparing it for a living. I'll bet these twosteer well clearof the apple aisle in the supertmarket though having spent all day looking at them. :G

Don't see those much anymore. I remember them as a kid, you'd crunch around the outside to eat the candy, then dispose oftheapple.

It is a good documentary/lifestyle type shot,focusesin onthe product and the people at work producing it. You cut out anything extraneous from the imagewhich is good, maybe a little bit too much as you lopped of the top of the workers head.

Is that a photograph faux pas? The head thing? I do that on purpose a lot and never found it very distracting. I don't know if it's because I never see the top of people's heads so they don't hold much value to me or if I just don't pay close enough attention to rulesbut I didn't know it was a no no.

The only rule is there are no rules :blah:, they are all just suggestions for making better compositions.

Generally it not a good to cut of appendages like hands, feet, heads, but sometimes doing soworks well. The same as watching for mergers, things growing out of people like posts or signs seemingly coming out of their heads:-). Which sometimes can be pretty funny.:blah:

The reflected lights make this a fascinating photo and keep the eye traveling. As for composition, the partial decapitation detracts. Welcome to the forums and keep posting.

In terms of a normal photograph you'll see this isn't a good one. It's dark, the composition is a bit off and there are distracting lights reflected onto the glass. But this isn't a studio shot. This is what I call street photography. With street photography the main aim is to capture every day life and the people who go about it. As a result you can't control the main aspects of what you would normally look for. You don't get much time to pick your moment, you can't control the lighting and you can't ask people to pose for you. You've made the best of what you had in front of you. It's such a natural setting. I love street photography and I would be proud to have taken this shot.
