Feedback please!

Hey guys, as some have seen my post on introductions I will be posting pictures of my food as I go onto learning the trade as I am a 17 year old learning to cook at college with a restaurant at the college i have to meet demands on time and with good food to end with, Please give feedback even if it is bad

First Picture Is pan fried fish with prawn risotto (this was my first time cooking both)

Second picture is a Smoked salmon and lemon blinis with watered down Creme Fresh, and a Herb oil.

Third Picture is a Chicken & liver terrine wrapped in parmaham on a bed of watercress and Red pepper coolie

Fourth is another angle of my fish

and the last is a picture of my class, I am the guy nearest the camera without glasses :)

Looks good, but I would use smaller plates. Your fish is hiding the risotto, can't see there are prawns in the rice.

I think they look beautiful! I cringe everytime I hear someone say they are cooking risotto, probably from me watching Gordan Ramsey too much heh.

Overall, the two dishes on the white plates look clearer and more appealing on camera (not sure if it's the dish or the lighting), but your risotto cake is shaped so nice!

I agree with others who've said the plates are too big. The day of three bites of food on a giant plate are long-gone. Otherwise, beautiful. I want the terrine!
