About the Image(s)

Taken with my Nikon D 5200 on Manual Mode, Lens 18.0 - 55.0 Focal Length 32 mm, Speed 1/320 sec., F/7.1, ISO 640. Post editing was done in Photoshop. Editing Process: adjusted contrast, white balance, black balance, highlights, clarity, de-haze. The post processing was done in Photoshop. I thought that the lighting in this venue was perfect for setting a mood however the composition was a challenge. I felt that the sausage hanging were important so I moved them lower and then cropped image to a square eliminating the person who walked into the shot just I was taking it. I also did the following: adjusted lighting, added a vignette, added a white border.

My questions:
Does this composition work?
Are the whites too blown out?

I like everything you have done with this, starting with your original. You have made it into a beautiful still life. The lighting is great, so is the vignette and border. The found arrangement of still life foods is very tranquil. Good idea about moving the sausages. Good eye and good job.
My only suggestion is to get rid of the plastic crate holding up the table, and maybe the half-melon, like this.   Posted: 12/05/2019 15:56:57
