Masterchef 2011 is all messed up.
I liked Masterchef in most of it's incarnations. The celeb edition didn't do all that much for me but on the whole I found it nice to watch. The format works and the English edition was shot very well. Attractive lighting, nice colours, it looked like the motion version of a high end cookbook.
As an example, check this clip.
And now this:
Which looks to me like they got a set designed by Gordon Ramsey, sacked the old crew and hired camera and light people that are used to doing gameshows.
I don't know, perhaps it gets better after the first round but this is no longer on my list of excellent food shows. Too bad!

I spent at least 15 minutes watching this, started out with 5 males, 3 females but the group got larger.
I like this shot for the composition, the exposure is decent but I see also what's wrong with it, mainly the noise.
Now I wondering.. am I being too hard on myself? Birding is tricky enough and this is as good as it's going to get in a somewhat shaded canal with a solid overcast sky.
