    Looks a bit flat & overexposed. Not very appetising to me actually

    Flat in the sense, it doesn't have the 3D look, not enough play with light & shadow,. Overexposed because all the detail in the top left half of the plate is gone, you can't see the rim that can be seen on the right top quarter.

    You wanted comments, you got it

    What the heck is that anyway (apart from the broccoli)?

    I've seen food shots where the food is being held at an angle to show the thickness, and sliced open to show the insides. I think this gives the viewer a better idea of what the food is really like. Hot pipping steam would be an appetizer as well.

    I feel that what's good about this shot is that it highlights the gravy well with the reflected light.

    Hmm.. it's on purpose on the loss of details of the plate coz the main thing is the colour of the food I'm trying to bring across..

    it's fried seafood tofu with brocolli (Summer Pavillion, Ritz Carlton)

    hmm.. that's the conventional form of food photography right? like the close up of a chicken breast been sliced open and stream and juicy goodness comes streaming out ... heehee... anyway, thanks for your kind comments
