I was having fun the other day!
Very nice Sandra. This is what I meant in my PM to you. There are endless options for still life photography.
I almost grabbed the fork and ate the cake whilst looking at the shot. Very realistic.
What did you use for your background?

I have a light box upstairs my husband made me for Christmas last yr then my son got me three pieces of velvet one black that I used here, one white I thought the cup and plate would disappear and one royal blue. Thanks for the compliment been awhile since I did this. It just takes me awhile to think ofsomething to do!!
Sandra, I think of many ideas for still life shots, but don't always have the time to set them up. I normally spend too long on this as I love it.
Think of some unusual glassware filled with water, perhaps colour the water, and put a bright coloured backdrop. Coloured wrapping paper is good for a background. Immerse something in the water and take a side view... just for some ideas.
Torch light under or behinds flowers I also love.

Nice work Sandra!, if you need help finishing off the cake.....

Kaye the color water sounds great
might try that
Sandy the cake was good but have to admit I enjoyed taking the pic more
Thanks Craig and Micheal I only bought one slice at the grocery store when I picked up the roses - that way I am not tempted

The cake wouldn't have looked nearly so appealing if not for your beautifully composed photo!! I love what you did, and the combination of colors.

This is a great shot! Really nice setup. You did good. I do have a couple of nits though- I wish that you wouldn't have cropped it so close on the left, and clone out that one hanging green leaf on the right. Otherwise, perfect.
