    Hi Nicole,
    I also agree with Vincent regarding the pomegranates they add a wonderful richness to the photograph.

    Did you use the rule of thirds on the bottom left Walnut to catch the eye and then use the focal plane to lead the eye through the image?

    Also enjoy TWiP when your there. It’s good to have a Canon user in the mix :D On that note, I’ve just bought a Canon 5 D MkII to replace my 40D and a 580 MkII Strobe. Do you have any tips for me as I have always avoided using flash as I prefer natural light but I fear I’m missing out on some great photography because of this?

    Many thanks
    Leighton (UK)

    I made a similar salad a few days back! ah! the joys of the seasonal colors. Love the jewel studded poms. It adds so much to food and photography.
