Last weekend we celebrated my spouses sons birthday at his place. Since he decided where his anniversary party was going to take place and likely a good idea we drove to his house for the occasion, well after all it was his day right ! Therefore we brought along his birthday cake , his favorite of course and we all sat to eat our dessert and just before i took the fork to dig in my piece of sweetness i shot the delicious slice of blueberry cheesecake he/we are all so fond of , naturally we all enjoyed it and the pleasant moments together thereafter .
PP includes a slight crop , added a missing corner top right ( not perfect ) ,well.. had i known to present this in the theme i would have shifted the plate a bit to the left to fill that space , not sure about the white balance either , was a sunny day so natural light filtering through the awning over the patio table, raised the exposure a bit and upped saturation a few percents to the whole scene and last some sharpening ,of course .
Iso 100 , f/6.3 , 1/125 in manual mode as usual ,
thank you for looking ,

Wow! Looks very sinfully delicious! Especially for the weather we are having today. Good dof with sharp details. wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Olá carol
I like celebrations...it is the expression of the care we have about others.
You did a good focus and...the textures look delicious...I must say I have water in my mouth.
Hope you are all happy.
Um abraço


Oh j'adore le cheesecake !
Il est intéressant de voir ton choix de cadrage, j'aime bien la position de la fourchette ainsi que ses reflets.
Excellente netteté, détails et gestion de la lumière qui nous laisse voir de belles couleurs.
Belle participation à ce Friday Theme qui va nous faire prendre du poids.
Bon week end.

A good contribution to Friday's theme, dear Carol!

Nice sharpness and well management of light on the piece of cake as well as on the fork too.
The colors are natural and DOF is excellent too, however, I wish the plate was not that colorful as it serves as a bit busy BG but that is a minor issue in this posting IMO.

A lovely delicious entry to the theme!

Hi Carol.

Tasty addition to theme friday, the clarity of detail shows us the texture and taste even. I may have thought about using a plain plate though. tfs

Stv :o))

Hi Carol, The cheesecake looks yum yum and I could just have it as dessert. There is one thing - I would recommend a white or black plain plate - the edging takes away from the cake slice.
A very tasty looking entry for the Friday Theme.
Kind regards - Monika

Ciao Carol,

Looks delicious & that's most of the battle won with food shots. The low shooting angle works well here. Good sharpness & colour with excellent lighting and a nice reflection in the fork. Tfs! Have a great Sunday!
