#1- Agreed, too much greenery. But I really liked the way it was arranged- innovative. Appears to be "smothered in sauce". 6 or (maybe) 7.
#2- Nice overall. Bet he wishes he had a larger one for the top left to match the other ones and flipped it to align the same. 8 or so.
#3-Messy. It is a different touch though with the wings. Would have helped to point the third one on the right in the middle row up and to the center to match the other 2 pointed that way. Or maybe arranged all the bones in some sort of pattern to get some symmetry or organization. 4 or 5 on my sheet. Sorry Charlie, but nice try.
#4-My favorite also. To be real picky, would like to see all the peices arranged with a pattern with the small ends vs long ends. These "appear" to be mixed in orientation. Also (really picky note), needs just a touch of greenery to fill out the right center and bottom just to the right of center. But, an 8 or (probably) 9 from me.
Interesting exercise. FBA and KCBS should do a lot of this to help with consistancy.
Hard to get a real feel with Pics, but works for me!
Kinda ignore me a bit on some of my comments. As DF will tell you, I am very anal about presentations.
It is our last chance to score points and I "fuss" a lot to get them as good as possible and I hold nothing back.
As a Judge, I am looking for a presentation that reflects thought and care by the team. Organized in some manner and showing effort to get an attractive and pleasing entry. I score much more liberally than I judge our own efforts
