    I like #1 and #2 a lot.

    #3 seems like it needs a bit more DOF.

    Good work though! What was in the background to give the change of color? Just the wall or other random object?

    Very nice shots! Also, the font used was very appropriately chosen. May I know what font is this?

    thankz everyone for e comments

    RuthBaby: Thanks for the pointers! me still amateur lah......hee so still learning how 2 perfect my skills. Never really tried shooting products though. Usually go for candid n macro shoots. I tot the garlic has more interesting stuff on the underside....... therefore decided to place it upside down.

    Must learn more abt product shoots from u guyz.......

    I like Garlic most, cos of the even cyan tone at the top. I feel it's very soothing...

    good day everyone. Glad 2 hear the all comments from all of u.
    I tink i shall go dig out more items 2 shoot liao. Do more experiment with diff bg n subjects.

    louispang: as i mentioned b4, bg is created using random objects. Personally i like the onion's relection the most. bg really accentuate the subject.

    As for fonts, ehhh.. cant remember wat i used.

    Great touches!

    Such a food fan here and you've covered some of my favourite ingredients!

    Onion: Beautiful colour scheme and nice reflection from the table top. Nice and appropriate font gives the photo a heightened sense of sophistication. Slight flare on the onion but that's a minor problem, easily rectified with diffused lighting.

    Garlic: Again, some really nice touches but as Ruthbaby pointed out, not the best looking garlic for the shoot (snobs we are!) and colour graduation not as effective as the first.

    Chilli: Like it alot. Perhaps move the chilli slightly so we could see more of it. Different angles might work better with this shot.

    Overall, one of the more inspiring food shots I've seen in a while. Keep them coming!

    Thanks for sharing.
