A festive one

I took this after Sarah made the first batch of the season the other night. Any comments would be appreciated. It was shot using kitchen lights so I had little control this time, but what would you change?



Comments good and bad welcome.

All the best,
Phil

I'd have taken a much bigger bite! They look delicious. Pic's not bad either! - touch of USM maybe.

Re: A festive one

If you uploaded a batch of mince pies - a) you've got a very advanced computer, and b) why didn't we all get a mince pie?

If I'd have been there you'd be taking a picture of a red cloth with the neat icing sugar outlines of several non-existent mince pies

Re: A festive one

I agree eating mince pies is an art. Not everybody has the skill. With some people they actually touch the sides as they go down. Amateurs.

I think it would make a super Christmas Card. Bound to get lots of comments.

good work

Peter
