Mmmm cranberry bliss bars. Too good to not shoot. These are a Starbucks product and I thought they would make a great image. I used natural light with a reflector. Added a Starbucks cup in the back and some flowers for color then clicked away.

I gave this is two because of the lack of DOF. I like it when some of the backgrounds are out of focus but I cannot stand when product shots have large portions of the subject out of focus.
Also, the upper right corner is super dark and it's a bit distracting to me.
Overall I think it's a decent shot but needs some more polish before it lands in a portfolio. Cheers

I gave this a two...

main reson been the DOF is too shallow at the front... its like a shot you missed your focus on,,, also the light from the softbox or the window light that's falling on the subject is on the focused side however the composition looks bad... maybe if the "fill" light wasnt too much on the cake and the light hitting the cake was more prominant it would be been better...

Also I would get rid of that box on the left... the red is highly distracting...

gave it a 3 because I feel you nailed the comp and light. I would have also liked to have seen the DOF include a majority of the food in focus but at the end of the day this image does exactly what it is meant to and that is to make me want one. Nicely done
