    Just because he has used the rules of thirds don't mean anything. Composition rules should be seen as a guide and not a law. There are amazing photographs that don't exactly follow the rules of the third.

    I don't know about you, but the way he shot it, it doesn't look appetizing at all. Looks more like a snapshot of his lunch than something you will want to put into the menu.

    rule of thirds ain't the only composition element around.

    The image lacks depth and too much emphasis is on the utensils, rather, they are not well placed in the shot and thus the image looks very "here, there, everywhere".

    Hope TS takes this in a constructive manner..

    Never tilt product shots unless one is shooting video which is 'live' where there's panning
    zooming etc. In product shoots the whole idea is to sell and capture viewers' fascination
    and attention and in this case the food must be able to attract peoples' taste bud.

    A tilt shot will certainly 'tilt' the viewers off.
