    Here is my first entry attempt.

    I'm new to this, so am unsure how to make the exif retain itself in the image, but I will be able to email the original no problem.

    it's a nice clear crisp picture, maybe a bit of the butter running over the edge would have suggested soft, a bit more?
    But well done for your first entry:thumbsup:

    It is a nice crisp image and I like the square crop. Personally though I would have composed it with the knife lower in the frame as the bottom part of the image is somewhat lost. Nice idea.

    Yup - now that you mention that I can see that I have nothing going on in the bottom of the image.

    Thank you for the feedback, I will learn from that as I take more pictures.

    Nice idea Andy and welcome to the competition.

    As already mentioned the square crop is great.

    It would have been nice to see more of the butter dish and knife, however what you can see in your image is great.:clap:

    Sit back and now comment on the rest of our entries.

    Hi mate.:hiya: Nice first entry and I think its a nicely composed shot,I like the fact that the knife starts in the top left third and ends in the bottom right third with the blob of butter in just the right place.Matbe a slightly tight crop would have lost some of that dead space, as steve mentioned.

    Simple and effective.:thumbsup:

    Thats great! Hope I haven't done a bad and emailed it to you in the wrong format!

    If it make it easier in the future, I can email it in the correct way, but when I play with it in CS2 it seems that I lose the original info.

    Is there any way that I can change this - i.e make adjustments but retain the exif info?

    Ta,
    Andy.

    Hi Andy

    Once you've adjusted/edited your picture, you then need to "save as" to retain exif.

    This is a nice shot but for me I'd have prefered to see the butter a bit softer as it still looks quite hard in your shot.
