Pancake galore 18 03 2019
So: Which aperture & which perspective do you like best?

Tasteful :)

I prefer the first one.   Wide open? 
Personally I would have put them all on the wood shelf, that red/pink is pretty distracting.

interesting thought. I really wanted the pink in my frame. I chose it from a lot of options.

The first one is at f/1.4

Ah, you wanted the pink.  But it does not really interact with the syrup I guess?

A matter of taste and association. I associated "American" and pink plastic fits that story or an American flag...

Think early "Pioneering, woodsy America" perhaps?

Not McDonalds's plastic America.

I love the griddle cakes but the pink platter less so.

Love to hear from you, Ann.
I have been in America once for 14 days.
These are the first homemade pancakes in my life.
And I cooked them just the way I know them: thick and small.
French are ultra thin and huge.
German are huge and thick.
Are there different styles of pancakes in America?

How would you decorate them?

I actually love all kinds of pancakes/griddle cakes/drop-scones, crepes (whatever people want to call them!) and yours do look delicious —as those who were lucky enough to eat them would probably agree?!

Waffles, made with the same kind of batter, are pretty good too — and so is good maple syrup.

The second one keeps the higher[better, IMO] perspective but shows more in focus[better, IMO] than the first shot. The pink surface doesn't bother me at all, but the horizontal lines in the background are already distracting in soft focus, and are even more distracting when sharper.

Thank you, Keith, Ann, John for the suggestions. I will try a 18th century story next time!!!
