I'm entering a cooking/photography competition run by a world-renowned chef and a professional food photographer, and I can only select ONE photo to submit. I'm having a hard time picking only one. The photos will be judged on the following criteria: Is the food beautiful? Is the photograph beautiful? And, most importantly, does the photograph make you want to try the food?
I figured that the wonderful cooks and photographers here at the forum could help me pick the best photo. Let me know what you think.
How this is different from photo 8:
The tacos are facing another direction. There is no empty space in the back of the taco platter. The flowers are more in focus, however, the vase is facing a different direction. More of the watermelon salad bowl can be seen. More of the background wall is visible. The shrimp ceviche in photo 8 is brighter and in better focus.
Thanks for your help.
