My first attempt at a real composition. This is not as simple as it looks. I can see everything that is wrong with each of these images and whats more I can see what to do to make the image better. And some areas are not too bad. I am taking notes!
I am looking forward to the Friday Pizza day so I can try again. This morning I am starting a Pizza Bianca. And the Fresh Cheese. Both of which take at least 24 hours.
