Spotted these little cowboys in my mom's cactus plant. They're actually butter knives.

I don't find the subject interesting enough to help pull the image together. Although the DOF is well done, the background and the subject are unrelated so it's hard for me to feel anything for the image.

One of the better figurine shots, good composition and colors. Your photo really shows off shallow DOF - I love the star-like cactus geometry and the whole image.

This would be better if it were a *real* cowboy.

Excellent choice of using the cactus as the blurred background. The blurred shapes of the spines is cool. Great work!

There is such a thing as too little Depth of Field. This is one such case.

5 - Unusual. Criticism; wish it were 640, the colors are good, unusual focal points and background, not sure on the thickish frame at this size. Like it. Perhaps 'taller' as well may have given this something more, with a little more space above &/or below the 'loner'.
