    I think I suffered from too shallow DOF on the Crab Rangoon.

    Anyone else?

    Food looks great, But i thinks it's too shallow, widen that f-stop a stop or two. Seems more out of focus then in focus. although that beef dish looks mighty tastey.

    Yup. My thoughts exactly. Thanks for the confirmation guys! I guess that f/1.7 is just too tempting. Maybe I'll stop down to 2.8 next time. Thanks guys!

    you might bring some more light into the scene too .. and a few props to brighten it all up. Even if it's out of focus, the background and foreground can make or break a food shot.
