    Well lit. Good cropping. Timeless object. Is it already in the brochure of the manufacturer?

    littlemav, PhillipW, Mepo, Lo: Thanks for the comments. I was tired of the smell of burnt toast and decided to just get it done with whatever light beyond yonder window broke.

(My apologies to William S.)

    This is one of my top 3 favs, your color, and processing is very nice, I also like the angle you have shot this from. (just joined tonight) and as soon as I figure out how to cast a vote I will! LOL Nice Job!!!

    Nice capture for the theme, good lighting and composition, high favourite.

    I like the colours and the composition. Needs a fill light on the right though. Had a friend who used to like his toast this dark - said the added carbon settled his stomach! Good variation on the theme.

    Well done - love the crispness of the shot. The angle adds interest.

    elliott - Thank You!
The only light I had on the right was a fluorescent light or a window with bright green trees just outside. Both choices looked weird, so I opted for shadow. I guess I could have rigged up a decent light had I taken more time.

(see my previous reply to Steven T)

    (i'd say burnt toast) looks like you had to use that same piece more than once for the shot. :)
i little indirect lighting on the right side would help this... illuminate the shadow area and maybe shed some light on the piece of toast.
still, in my favorites.

    Jade O. - I figured I'd make my wife happy by using the blue mat. She would have been "quite vocal" had I put the toaster directly on her good table!

    I would have lost the purple mat.

    Steven T - LOL, the toast was dark because I had to do so many takes and didn't want to waist perfectly good whole wheat bread! (The second slice was better.) Thanks for the compliments.

forkcandles - Thanks for the comments. (My wife picked out the "lovely" toaster.)

    Burnt toast! I see you have a wry sense of humor. All this technology, and the toast still burns. #&*#!! This was my top choice in the challenge. Nice exposure to show the glowing elements. as well as the details of the toaster. Good work!
