First the image…..
For me the coffee cup and syrup jug detract from the subject, they are just too close to the plate and those objects grab my attention instead of the plate of pancakes.
All my medium format cameras see differently despite the fact that they are all 6×6 cameras. Every one has a different character, a different personality that is visible in the final image. I select the camera depending on the vision/final result I want to achieve. It will be same with the next camera I buy, it will take me a while to learn it, to find out its personality and then that knowledge to create the image, the feeling, the mood I want (or at least so I hope) :-)
PS…. BW400CN in D75, is that not C-41?

Hmmm… I agree with Haggis; the syrup bottle and coffee cup distracts the viewer. However having taken them away (mentally :) you’re still left with a too out of focus plate of lovely looking pancakes. If the photo was a little bit more cropped on the top as well you’re friend wouldn’t look so beheaded.
Verdict: Lovely contrasts but too little focus on those yummy pancakes. And I like the hands in focus – showing lovely pancakes being eaten rather than those boring food photos lacking totally the human touch.

I’m REALLY happy I missed the HAGGIS discussion — that stuff makes me hurl — I went to Wales for a football game once — and the boys were chowing on that stuff — I took one whiff and just about lost it — no thanks…
As for the photo — I’m REALLY curious — this was shot with Kodak Portra – a C41 emulsion — what is d75? Of course, I know what D76 is — but I use it for true b&w emulsions — I’ve even processed COLOR film in b&w developer — but not the other way around —
Whatever you did — this image is great — the blacks are so good — and the overall image quality made me think it just might be digital — it’s wonderful (not that I love digital – as you know)...

Really like the tones in this, Jason. Very nice. I just got a Pentax 67 this week. Taking it out tomorrow for a spin.

Those were good pancakes.
I think the focus on the hand makes the subject of the photo the action of eating, and not an object. I also think this emphasis makes the piece more sensory.
