Wow, those look great! I'm getting hungry! What a great experience you're describing with this resteraunt. They are very artistic in their presentation and you've nailed it.
From my very limited knowledge, the only way I could see to improve this is by bringing out a little more detail -- brightining things. I doubt that more flash is necessary, just a little pp. In this regard, what about a darker tablecloth, so the tablecloth wouldn't overexose?
Thanks again for sharing TelexStar, it's great to be in on the problems and see the adjustments you make as you go.
