As an experiment I used two different settings, one with the D5000’s FOOD scene mode, and another using manual settings with a shallower DOF. For the second photo, taken in manual mode, the white balance was set to AUTO. It’s actually not an apples to apples comparison since the first photo is of the muffin on a pottery plate while the other is still in the pan. Maybe there’s too much blue from the dark gray muffin pan? The FOOD scene photo seems warmer and maybe more appealing with a slightly deeper DOF, which picks up the flecks of lemon from the lemon glaze. In this case, I prefer the pic shot using the FOOD scene setting. Which one do you like better?
