[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These are Japanese soba noodles. Before eating, I dropped the green onions (and wasabi) into the tsuyu liquid. Then, using chopsticks, I dipped the noodles into the tsuyu and ate.

I'm not happy about the bright reflection on the seaweed, and the tsuyu liquid.

Well Adam, i´m happy for all this new "menus" i can make at home thanks to you! This one also looks fabulous, hum, must be tasty! The reflection you talk about, i don´t think you should give any importance to that!

Very good composition. I like the way you have cropped the round bowls. I think it would have maybe been a good idea to continue the overhead view of the first two shots in the theme.

First, thank you for that wonderful site... Reflections are always difficut to take...
I don't know very well Japanese food but I will know Chineese food more (as my brother's girlfriend is from Taiwan)

Adam, you're making me hungry! This image has more pleasing tones, I feel, than in your other two. I also like the interesting composition of the implied triangle. You can perhaps burn the bright parts of the image just a little to take the glare off them, but the glare doesn't bother me here much at all.

Hi Adam, I'm rating this photo as one of the most amazing and delicious japanese dish, I've ever seen... so now you can see my note and rate it useful or unuseful... choose one (rather usefull :) ) and do a refresh or reload on that same page, you will see it gets back to NEUTRAL!!!

Hello Adam, this picture captured my attention because last month I began to take pictures of foods, and with this I learned that there are many details that to consider when we take pictures of foods and mainly if these pictures are in interiors, I photographed the other day a plate with papaya pieces, and I am not really satisfied with the result, in fact for the shine of the flash on the plate and envelope the fresh papaya, I take other pictures without flash and in this case I didn't like the resulting color. I appreciate your picture and I thought of the angle from which you captured it and the configuration of your camera, the clarity of the image, (forgetting the shine) this seems as if I am seeing in person this plate, the detail of the clarity of the color of the I liquidate cocktail with the wood of the recipient of the right it is excellent, the change of the color in the shade. I am not sure if in this case, to use some tool with option clonar can make something to eliminate something of shine, I was attempting it, but I believe that it is better to make this during the day because they can be appreciated these details better. Cordial greetings. Excellent Beginning of Week. *Ninfa Urania*
