    mmm. My first thought was that the bottom one looks a bit like a
    briefcase - it would go well with Doug's trademark filing cabinet
    background shots..

    Hints for professional wedding shooters:
    1. The cake shot is one you have complete control over, so there are no
    2. Carefully arrange and completely include (or exclude!) items that
    might be seen as related or decorative. Eg flowers (or scrolls in
    bottles) should never be cut off.
    3. Give your subject room - don't let edges of the cake or its base
    touch or go too close to the edges.
    4. Avoid odd bits of colour that might distract, eg little bits of
    bright blue at top right..
    5. Make sure the cake/base is either straight, or deliberately angled.
    It's just like a horizon - if it is a little off, it just looks odd and
    6. Don't just shoot from wherever you happen to hold the camera - look
    at the cake design - would it look better from a lower or higher angle
    of view? In this case, I would have gone lower.

  6. Take the doll mate. At least you have the comprehension to pick a real flaw.

  7. An I thought you were just an idiot...
    Now I'm convinced.

  8. Its obvious that your only response to people who pick out your flaws is to
    call them an idiot, but then those are your true colours after all :)

  9. Not at all. If someone with half an interest in the photograph and not a
    bash up on me, passed comments I felt were valid, I'd respond in kind.
    Your problem is even worse than the idiot's. You don't have a clue in
    the first place. Not that he does either but he tries... Poor bugger.

    It's an improvement from your "filing cabinet" wedding cake shot. The
    cake itself is phenomenal. I don't like the bride & groom though.
    It's too cartoonish for my taste.

    Been on the sauce tonight, Doug? Yerr thlurrrrin yerr wurdth, mate.
    Nice to see you addressing the content of the email and avoiding
    personal attacks, as usual. It is interesting that an idiot knows more
    about wedding photography than you..

    Are there any other wedding photog's here would like to comment on
    Doug's picture, versus my comments?

    Cheers, Doug.

  12. he seems to know far more than you, and I can see that it gets right up your
    nose :)
    As I have said in the past, I don't comment on subjects I don't know about
    (you should try it some time) things like walking panos, you remember those,
    you accused me of saying something I had never commented on, you even put me
    in one of your little hate sites, you have also failed to return to that
    thread and answer the criticism of your lies there just as you failed to
    return to your pathetic attempt with that god awful abortion you tried to
    pass of as a legitimate attempt at a walking pano, and even someone with my
    admittedly small amount of photographic knowledge can see that it was a
    hurriedly thrown together mish mash, that a year 4 class at a special school
    could have bettered.
    Now If you may have noticed, I haven't bothered to make comment on your
    posts when they pertain to photography, but when you start with the personal
    attacks and try and slip your lies into one of your trademark rants, I will
    make comment, after all its only fair, as you have failed to acknowledge the
    truth that I never made comment about Panos before your attack, also know
    that telling a lie repeatedly does not make it the truth, so I will be
    making sure everyone knows that, as I'm sure will Mark.
    Here is a photo I'm sure you would love to share with us Douggie, how about
    a photo of your new Audi, blur out the number plates if you like, but show
    us how it is done, after all you criticized Mark for his DB5 photo, show us
    how it is done :) Oh and can you park it in the same spot (or near enough)
    to where your old car was photographed, after all it would be a fair
    comparison then :)

    Not to detract from the worth of the creator of your examples... Sam
    Carter is one of Queensland's most popular and innovative wedding cake
    decorators. She makes and supplies the intricate sugar accessories used
    by many of her rivals.

    Unlike many photographers, cake decorators tend to compete by turning a
    bride's imagination into substance. Sam seems to be able to do this with
    incredible regularity. She is also an advertiser in my planning for
    weddings magazine:

    If she is QLD's most popular wedding cake decorator why is the only
    google result for her a link your page?

    Not even Delightfully Decadent returns any results.
    I would have thought the most popular wedding cake decorator in
    Queensland would have at least won some awards.

    Not much money in wedding cakes or another mediocre performer?
    ^Tems^, Aug 27, 2008
  15. Probably a Mediocre performer! ROTFL.

    Yep. This is Brooksie on the prowl alright LOL.

    Oh man... Does your world start and stop at the Internet? Pity you if it

    Dude, just wait till you see her masterpiece .... where the whole cake
    looked like a big filing cabinet. I believe the theme was "Married to
    I think I've got a pic of it here somewhere.
