Not sure about the score/grade, but I would have used a smaller aperture to collect more detail in the wings, although leaving the dip at left soft is fine.

Cropped too tight. Zoom out and get more into the frame, as the crop leaves an awkward composition. Some bad CA/fringing behind the food. My grade: 2

Good intent for this shot. The above comments do apply, and the depth of field too narrow. 4/10

Thanks for your comments

WPRESTO, my teacher said the same thing about the aperture, a smaller one would be better for this shot

icywarm, the white thing you see near the top left its the end of table

by the way I got a 6/10
