Leftovers [34/366]

We love leftovers! When I need a night off from cooking, we do delivery.  Normally, we call up Upper Crust Pizzeria in West Roxbury.  Speedy delivery and an excellent menu!  And the pizza makes for some seriously good  lunch leftovers.

This image is very simple.  The lighting is from a single soft box coming from 7 o'clock with the camera 4 feet above the box.  But compositionally, it's not as simple.  I had to use the pizza's shape and lines to lead the eye around the image.  The paper, another graphical element, helped to break up the triangular geometry.
