    A little nit pick, maybe you could have gotten rid of the tray.

    Hope to see more yummy food pics from you.

    I need time to collect new photos lah, have been eating same stuff so nothing new to post for the past few weeks. But I have accumulated quite a few so you guys will see some updates on my thread soon.

    Enough of OT, looking forward to see more yummy food from Raptor.

    a suggestion, use either the spoon or the chopsticks to life the noodles up, so that they can be seen

    The nasi lemak was a bit messy and I agree it would be labeled as snapshot. That, no amount of PP will help.
    WB is a bit too cool.

    Even if this is just to record your daily makan, think about how to capture and present the food so that they look good and hopefully evoke some sense of desire. You can refer to Ortega's and Cheesecake's thread for reference and ideas. Those 2 are the ones that inspired me.

    Hope you dun mind my honest opinion.

    Maybe is better to shoot the cake as a whole. Or is it better if it is possible for you to clean up abit before shooting.

    Find that the rice is taking attention away from the fish soup.

    here's the whole cake.. The pic of a slice being cut out was done on the spur of the moment. So din really pay attention to the cream stains.

    Maybe you should try that or just take the fish soup alone, no harm trying out a few compositions to see which works.
