Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. This expression applies to art, your child's finger painting, how attractive you are to a certain person, and food!

Yes, food!

There are multiple websites out there who show the best food photos submitted by a zillion of food bloggers. What makes the process so amusing is when one such site deems my photo worthy, while the other says it's too dull, unsharp, or has a poor composition. Still, I keep on trying, and I'm constantly amazed at the talent demonstrated by my fellow bloggers.

Just a few days ago after I posted Beet and Orange salad, I was talking to Anna, and she said she thought the salad looked too posed..but that was my intention! I feel super validated because Serious Eats chose my photo as their favorite photo of the day posted on Photograzing :)

I think you always have great pictures! If I had a website like tastespotting, you would be on it every time you submitted something. :)

Photography is one way to make your favorite dishes look appetizing to the public. But there are some foods that are so good that are not photogenic. I am not a photographper, just a cook, but I think your photos look great!
