Hi Jan, this looks so scrumptious. Great close-up point of view and I like how you are low and almost at level with the plate, making the pancakes look huge and fluffy. The orange juice glasses look really big too, and the pancakes and glasses balance each other out. Excellent framing and composition and really beautiful rich bright colors. I like the fact that you left in some negative space above, and dark, to make them pop out a lot. Great detail and clarity, very sharp. I never would have thought to use a Gaussian Blur on food, let along pancakes, but I am glad you did because this looks great! They are like heavenly pancakes, hehe. And I love that frame with the blue lines matching the colors on the glass at the way left. Great shot, TFS!

so pop-art...
i like the white effect.. colors are right.. and right is the light.. a good work, my compliments.
best regards

Nice macro Jan: The focus is deep with great coulours all well picked for this super composition... I'm having pancakes in the morning now........ Thanks .....Roman

Hi Jan, original photo!
I love the colours but most of all, I like the hint of blur, which creates such a soft image.

Hi Jan,
Very good work on this photo! The pancakes look so appetizing! Very efficient composition and coloured set-up. With this close-up, I have the impression to be at table. Here, we eat pancakes with maple syrup! Bravo! Annie

Bon Appetite!
This is fantastic - the colors are so hip and adible. So are the pancakes. You made perfect poster shot for a Pancakes Restaurant. The frame compliments the content so well.
