Constructive Critique  - 
 
This is dairy-free sweetened condensed milk that I posted on my blog.  I'm not very confident about my food styling skills, so I usually opt for simple, but I'm wondering if this verges on boring? 
Also, is this too tight a composition?
Natural light from two windows (I shoot in a corner).  One window is to the side and one behind. White bounce to the right of the camera.
Nikon D50 / 50mm 1:1.4
f/2.5  ISO: 400

I'd go for a blue plate or a blue napkin, to help pop the red colour, I think it would help to balance the shot a bit more.

Hi everyone, Thank you for the invite to join the community.  I just wanted to drop by and say hello! I've been blogging for  2 years now at my site, Free Eats, but I still consider myself a newbie when it comes to the intricacies of food blogging and computer knowledge.  Looking forward to sharing and learning with all of you.

I asked my family if they wanted a special Valentine's Day dessert and they all begged for the easiest recipe I know!  Love them!

Blogging Tips & Questions  - 
 
I'm wondering if any of you can share some insight on domain name extensions (.com/.net/.org).  When I first started my blog I made some decisions that are coming back to haunt me regarding domain name.  I'm considering changing domain names (with a forward for existing traffic) but not sure if it's worth it.  Basically it boils down to the fact that my site 's name is not the same as my domain name.  Big bummer! I would greatly appreciate some advice. Thanks in advance.

If I had only had your foresight I would have done the same! Good to know that you have a different blog and domain name.  It seems to work well for you!  Thank you for weighing in.

Share your work (camera)  - 
 
Hi everyone, It's my first time sharing, so let me know if I don't do this correctly!  I would love some constructive criticism.  I seem to have a hard time fitting everything into the frame.  I'm thinking I need a different lens but this is the only one I have for low light settings.  Thank you!

Thank you for the invite Jeanine!  I'm trying to figure out Google+ so hopefully I can take a look around here.  :)

I'm still trying to learn too, but there seem to be a lot of great features that could be really nice for cooking groups. Just need to learn those features first. :) Feel free to share your recipes here too, there are different categories, so things won't get bumped away right away. :)
