A picture of a traditional Swedish Christmas plate, with eggs, ham and salmon. I like the colours and the composition, but feel it is something missing to make the photo interesting. Help me, someone?

Mmmmm, i just got very hungry. You are right about the composition. It's quit good in my mind. I think it is a litel bit un sharp though, and that removes a lot of intrest from teh picture as a whole i beleive. It seems like the pickled cucumber is the main subject here, mabye you can try to place it a bit more off center and see what that does to the composition. I did a WS for you.

Where are the Kött bullar?

Indeed the colour are great but the picture seriously lack of sharpening. So I tried a workshop, I hope you'll like it.

By the way, I couldn't help noticing the red packaging of some terrible industrial cheese on the left hand side of the plate. You shouldn't eat this, trust a french man on this. ;-)

What a great idea to take a photo of your traditional Christmas food. I had a good look, and everything looks so delicious and healthy. Good composition on placing the food on the plate. I like it.
Well done.

I love these colors. The photo is very nice and tasty (!!) but I think is somewhat pure of colors and light. I made a workshop for it!
