Food Photography - Win!

Until last week I had never submitted any food photography to sites like Tastespotting or Foodgawker.  

I had read that these sites reject most photos, and I didn't want to go through the trouble.  If you have your pictures on these sites it is really good for blog traffic, however, and so I decided to send in three photos to Foodgawker.

They rejected all three.

I sent in 3 more to Foodgawker and 2 to Tastespotting, and they got rejected for reasons such as lighting or composition.  Finally I tried one more picture with Tastespotting last week and they accepted it!

See if you can spot it here.

Yipppeeeeeee!

Awesome news!!! Nice photo too. You inspired me to throw my hat in the food photo ring. Managed to get a photo approved on foodgawker on the second attempt.

Congrats! Of course it's fried chicken! It should always be fried chicken :) I recently ate Paula Deen's fried chicken at her restaurant, and yes, it lives up to the hype. It's amazing.
