My Two Cents
So, Let me begin by saying that, this critique is just my opinion and just as I always like to do we’ll first talk about the strong points of this photo.
Technically the photo is correctly exposed (may be just slightly underexposed), focus is sharp towards the front of the photo.
If your goal is to show the ingredients, I would suggest changing the camera angle. I would challenge you to try top down or at least an angle closer to straight down for this shot. From the current angle, my eyes only see strawberries and the croissant of course.
As I said, technically there is very little than can be changed. So clearly this photo covers all the technical basics. Now composition and styling elements should your focus.
It’s your turn now, readers. What do you think about this photo? How would you improve it? What can Dee change in this photograph? If you were to shoot Croissant, how would you shoot it?
