Congratulations on your new Site and also on your first picture on TL Adam!
It's a funny one, I thought you could have added Humour to the chosen categorie... Will you let us see how you eat that soup with the chopsticks? :o)

Only a photographer would think of think of taking a picture before his meal :-) Perfectly centered overhead shot Adam.I can understand the chopsticks for the chunky portions of the soup but without a spoon, is the rest slurped in like a mug?

Congratulations for the first picture on T.L.!

Very original Adam, looks tasty:)!
I think i´ll start taking pictures of my food before eating, this way we could creat a theme called "food from all over the world" or "World Cuisine" where people would show their food, but in a artistic way like Adam did!

Congratulations for TL, Adam ! I'm really honoured to be among the first ones to visit it. I hope the TOS will be available soon, I think we will have great fun here !!
Good first post, JAF would have said it's an 'abstract/concrete' one ;-)

It looks very hard o eat soup with chopsticks, Adam. Anyway, it's a wonderful first shot on TL, congratulation, Adam, I am sure that this site will be a big success, I wish you all the best with this project, and your future projects.

Congratulations on the new site Adam.
Interesting looking soup. Good first pic for TL. Like the others I`m not sure about eating soup with chopsticks. When you leaned over the soup to take this shot, did your lens not steam up?

Congratulations with the new site Adam. I am honoured to be here between the first on the site.

I agree with Derek - I am pretty sure I would start eating before thinking of taking a picture of the meal. I like the composition and the colours. The red and green works very well. I wonder what the white chunky things - is it cheese or fish. Never min, I will give you a big smiley for the plate ;-).

The new site is already so successfull. Congratulations. Your photo is so colorful and delicious looking. At first glance it reminded me of a flag. I join the question chorus and ask chopsticks and soup?.

CONGRATULATIONS Adam. This is gonna be great. We might as well toast to you (with misu soup).

Great site Adam, and a great introductory photo, the over head view with no DOF is the kind of confusing perspective shot i like. The strong red and the symmetry work well here. Great shot, well done.

Interesting start shot Adam.
Guess all the work "forced" this one...
Good luck with the new site and not least the chopsticks ;-)

you not only offer us another fantastic site but you also show the food! ;)
I am grateful and honnoured to be part of both communities, Adam.
colors and textures are excellent.
composition is simple yet effective: i am hungry!
thanks for sharing!

Fantastic colour combination and composition Adam! The light and sharpness are perfect too. I am not sure about the taste of the soup though..? :-)

Thank you for the wonderful new site!!! My admirations for the big heart and sleepless nights you devote to TE and TL!

Very appetizing food picture. I like the perfect symetry in the position of the bowl giving all the place to the food itself. Well done.

Enjoy your meal! Thanks Adam to give us a new opportunity to show special pictures.

this would be a good shot for a series I think - something like 9 bowls of soup - square composition.. different colour bowls and different contents..same positioning. It would look great

Very interresting shot, what are the ingredience? Do you cook as well as you manage TL (smile) I like the contrasting colors of both the soup,and bowl, I like the simplicity of the shot, good one!

Just wanted to see the first photo posted here. Not very good, but whatever...

Adam, what a brainstorm to come up with this site. My kids are all jealous, and claim I am IN LOVE with TL. Well they are right. This site has brought a new meaning to my life and photography. I am learning so much about the world its people and especially the art of photography. I am totally addicted to it, but hey, it is a healthy one.
The soup looks good.
Thank you for TL
