I think it's framed too tightly and needs more back light to make the spaghetti glisten more. And the greenery on the plate looks messy and needs tidying up.

Keep shooting.

Thanks Chas. I appreciate your input. I like it tight - to focus on the food, not the plate, etc. But I totally get what you are sayin! As for the chopped Parsley - well, some chefs sprinkle their plates, some like it clean - as you can tell, I like it messy!

Greg:
I would crop this at least to the inner rim of the bowl, and as suggested, clean up a little of the greenery. Oh and I'll have a double order, if you please.

I suppose I'm in the minority here that actually likes the tight crop (but I'm far from a pro when it comes to food photography).

The meal itself looks absolutely delicious! You have succeeded at making me hungry!

Thanks Nick! I'm far from a pro as well but I know what I like and what works for me. There are so many food photographers I admire, and they all have their own style. Some shoot tight, some set up an environment, and the food isn't necessarily the star of the show. I love to cook, so I want the food to shine, just not artificially!
