Weekly Challenge #37- Still life, food
Posted By: Eaglerapids, 11-13-2007, 09:31 PM

Ok, let's do a Still Life but it has to be a food theme. What did you have for dinner? or desert? Since I've come down with my LBA disease this is generally my dinner:

and I'd like to see what I'm missing, lol.

Contest closes on Tuesday Nov 20th at Midnight. I’ll post the winner(s) on Wednesday evening. Now, I race Wednesday evenings so it very well could be later on into the evening before I will be able to post the winners.

The rules:
1. Post ONE photo (max 800x800) as a response to THIS post.
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme. It can be colour or B&W, your choice.
3. You can offer as much or as little additional information as you wish, but I'd be interested to know the location/event/whatever being depicted.
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and chose 1 of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. The challenge runs for 7 days plus a day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any camera will do but it must be a Pentax. Just use any camera you want. No discriminating anyone as long as the shooter is an active member here.

Previous Challenge Subjects:
1-Statues, 2-Wheels, 3-Speed, 4-Peace, 5-Survival, 6-Macro, 7-Mountains, 8-Children, 9-Post Processing, 10- Windows & Doors, 11-Sport, 12-Urban Landscape, 13-Wisdom, 14-Power, 15-Music, 16-Pathways, 17-Lines, 18-Storm, 19-Boats, 20-Water, 21 - Golden Hour, 22 - Natural Lighting, Portraits, 23- Motion Blur, 24-Simplicity, 25-Color, 26-Cars, 27-Repetition, 28-Wildlife, 29-Epiphany, 30-Contrast, 31-Pets, 32-Landscapes, 33-Coastal, 34-Churches, 35-Bridges, 36-Creation

I must tell you about this Retirement Cake made for a friend who worked for more than 30 years for our phone company Telstra. It was a real phone iced over and when he went to cut it , It Wrang, giving him the surprise of his life. Of course we were all rolling on the floor laughing.

Ok, this is what I made for dinner tonight. They are hot wings with a homemade sweet/spicy cinnamon garlic sauce. They were actually quite good. As I was serving this, I thought it looked good in the bowl and I said "wait!!! Don't eat yet, I have to get the camera"! Of course, my wife thinks I am retarded...

I can honestly say I don't think I've ever tried to photograph food before, so here goes:

K10D, FA135mm, ISO 400, F5.6, 1/15th, SR, bright mode
PP: resize, auto levels, sharpen

Dinner: chicken breasts with spices and veggies (should be ready in about an hour from now, lol)
