There is definitely a yellow cast to this photo, I'm guessing from the indoor lighting.  The depth of field seems a bit too shallow to me, and the bakery item is slightly out of the frame on two sides.

 

Hope that helps!

I agree with @George_F re the color, but also it isn't quite as sharp as it could be.

Hello,

The lighting could be a lot better; it isn't fine! Currently, you have spectral highlights on the bread. You have white balance issues - it is too yellow! Don't use indoor lighting (tungsten, energy saving, etc, as they give out a warm light). You really need studio-type lighting to give more even lighting conditions.

Read up on white balance and depth of field below.  It will help you improve your photographic technique so you won't need so much post-time in Photoshop or Lightroom.

Better luck with your next submission. 🙂

If you correct all the technical issues, you still have to cope with that partial logo in the background. That may trigger an IP violation.
