Our fairly virtuous dessert this Thanksgiving (U.S.) on a new homemade cutting board.

Looks nice, tasty too. I was volunteered for the green bean casserole this year - made about three quarts (two pounds of beans).

Mmmm, yummy. What kind of bread is that Oh? I bet it weighs about 1/2 pound per slice.

Thanks. It's funny how that casserole has become associated with Thanksgiving so that people now think it's a tradition. What an upstart! It wasn't one of the classic dishes when I learned about T'giving. Do they still do the creamed pearl onions?

Thanks. Pumpkin bread with nuts. It's dense, but the slices are small.

Funny - I have never heard of that but a quick search and I see that is a popular dish. Maybe for Christmas.

Not necessarily a holiday food but certainly more common this time of year ...

These were on sale after Christmas, 50% off. Shot on a different new homemade cutting board. I wish I had better lighting and a continuous background with no horizon line, but here goes.

I think it looks nice - good light and the camera used offers an interesting perspective. As for the horizontal line, most post production software can remedy that in short order. If the software is an issue, you can buy largish sheets of white (or black) cardboard which you can place under your subject and curve it against the wall. On the plus side these cardboards can be used as reflectors as well.

Thanks. You seem to like it more than I do!  :p I agree that the light was good. However, the whole presentation is emotionally cold rather than inviting. I now think that for a cake that small, going in closer would be better. As is, the wood occupies too much of the frame. And the package is too far from the cake. That was a tradeoff. I put the package far back to blur it, and even at f/1.8 it didn't blur much.

Don't hesitate to criticize. I want to improve.

Another attempt to make this stuff look appealing.

The fork seems huge. That far below the focus point, it shouldn't. These panettones are very small. I had a miniature plate to set the slice off but not a miniature fork.

Yet another attempt. By this time, there was no natural light. The kitchen's LEDs served.

Not exactly food but it is something to warm the tummy during the Holiday Season. Hot eggnog was served in my family during the Holidays for as long as I can remember and I'm 70 now. Brandy is optional of course.
