    Congratulations! a very nice composition! Carlo

Feb 12, 2007
    Thanks everyone for the votes. I tried several compositions, but I found that lifting the camera to get a better angle on the pizza ruined the angle on the beer glass. So I lived with the compromise ...

    I really like the composition and clarity of this picture.
It's definitely a tradition I wouldn't have thought of, very effective. It's for sure in my TT!

    I like the idea -- looks delicious too. Suggest to shoot from just a little higher angle to show more of the triangular shape of the pizza slice and pull back just a little to show the whole glass of brew -- ideally with a nice frothy head on it!

    Great subject matter but I think a shooting angle from a little higher and including the top of the glass would make it more interesting. Beer & Pizza -- to die for. Good luck.

    In my first draft of favorites (top third). I like that you got down next to the food and didn't just stand over the table, but I would like to see a bit more of the pizza surface. I think seeing the head on the beer would be good, too. I also wonder if the focal point should be a little deeper (right now it's on the tip of your slice). I really like your color palette -- including the black background -- and I see you've followed the rule of thirds, too.

    Man, oh man, that stirs some memories. Just a little bit more elevation on the shot to show more of the toppings on the pizza and I'd be more pleased, but that's just me. It still made it to my TT. Good job.

    It must be the cleanest frathouse ever! In my student days a clean plate was hard o find. But good entry in my TT.

    Now that's a tradition I can get into :-) I'm a long way removed from frat house but as I type this it's Friday night, I'm drinking a beer and there's a pizza cooking in the oven. Nice photo too.

    DoF looks real good. One of the few times, at least for me, where the f/g being oof works. Nice use of DoF and it compliments composition. That's a tasty look'n pizza. Everything, and pp too, is well done.

    nicely executed shot. Makes me think I should eat pizza, and then I remember I already did that and am paying for it.

    This is a tradition I could get into. :-) Really yummy looking image. Excellent exposure and composition. Well done.
