Food Photo Competition 2014 No 4 : Entry Number 64

Judges Comment

Crispy sharp, just where it should be, beautifully composed, exposed. This too is the perfect photograph but it’s perhaps a little less exciting than one or two others…

Photographers Comment

Thank you for the 'mark of excellence' award. My name is James Markus and I am a photographer in West Michigan. I shot this with a Nikon D800 and an old Nikkor 35mm f1.4 ais manual focus lens. The image is basically straight out of the camera, with minor tweaks in Photoshop. Lighting is a single Paul C. Buff AlienBee™ B800 Flash Unit with a strip light soft box modifier. Tray is black sassafras wood from Tasmania Australia. The coffee and biscotti were delicious.
