Feedback is important for growth. If you want to get better at something, it is important to practice and practice and practice. But with that, it is also important to get some feedback. Feedback helps you to understand different perspectives and helps you open your mind to new possibilities.
Here at this blog, we are restarting a regular food photo feedback section to help you get feedback from fellow readers and food photographers. If you like to get feedback or critique on your food photos (and a link back to your blog) please email me at neel[at]learnfoodphotography[dot]com

Looking for Feedback on…
I’m open to comments on just about anything related to the picture. I’d especially welcome comments on problem areas and ways to improve it. … my concern is about food styling, use of colours, lighting and the total appeal of the picture.
My Two Cents
Nashira, overall I like this photo. In my opinion, this photo has technical a good photo. The subject is exposed right. The subject is in focus and is sharp. Technically there is nothing wrong with this photo.
Your goal was to entice or invite people to eat the dish. In that terms, a photograph about a dish is often more inviting than a photo of a dish. (Read more on “photo about a dish” versus “photo of a dish”)
I am going to leave this at a very high level at this time, so that I don’t influence anyone else’s opinion and feedback.
