    Just our kitchen. I'm a beginner at this, so all criticism will be taken constructively and appreciated.

    Had a nice homemade dinner and had to break out the camera.
    My wife adores balsamic vinegar and Trader Joes. I might rank third on her list.

    Great Photo. I love the shallow depth of field. I have the 50mm 1.8 and it's my favorite lens. Was this shot at 1.2?

    Cool view of a restaurant kitchen. I guess they were taking a break.

    Love this shot. Very cool interpretation of the theme. What lens did you use for this?

    I do love me some banana bread. The knife is a little distracting to me though.

    A dog wanting some pizza. An all to familiar scene in my hose with my two dogs.

    This is a nice shot but to me it's only a snap shot. Maybe approach it from a different angle. Still its nice and sharp. I would maybe do a shot looking down the counter and play with the DOF. But thats me. Are you a fireman? I was for 16 years when I lived in NJ

    Very nicely done. I really like this one

    Nice interpretation of the theme but it's just too distracting for me. My eye does not know where to go on this one.

    My fried loves Trader Joes as well. I have only been there once. I like the Apple store better. I like how you blew out the background
    Love all the graffiti. Makes me want a burrito.

    Great food shot. Making me hungry. Need to finish this up and order dinner.

    Ok I hope you all enjoyed my judging. Here are the winners. Thanks to everyone who entered. I really do enjoy looking at everyones photos on here and the contest help get my creative juices flowing.

    3rd place Oracle1729
    2nd place NeGRit0
    1st place twitch31

    Congrats to the winners. Winner has 48 hours to create a new theme.

    Congrat's to the winners. Yet again a great diversity of entries.

    This was taken with the Tamron 90mm f/2.8 macro lens (unstabilised) and a speedlite shining through from underneath.

    Congrats twitch31!

    fireman32, thank you for your comments. I will take your advice and continue trying. And yes, 10 years part-time firefighter (since retired) and close to 15 years part-time EMT (still current, but soon to retire). Full-time lead hand printing pressman (my true passion).
