Shot at night outside my place. After a few challenges where I kinda "forced fit" my image into the challenge, I decided to do one properly. So, my first challenge where I've actually specifically gone out with the title in mind to get something that meets the criteria.

Ah, it came up in a couple of comments so i should mention. no snails were injured to create this picture!

Congrats, and hope your little model got relocated after the "job". Love your creativity, using the shallow DOF really focused the attention where it belongs, while creating that fabulous bokeh!

Strong subject, I find the green and white light in the distance distracting .

If I were in Las Vegas I think I would take the under that there would be two photos with snail in them on a road challenge. Both of them are pretty good photos. The shallow DOF works well to highlight your subject, but the brightness of the stripe distracts some. Well done!

I like this. DOF is really nice. Works for me...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2006 12:23:14 AM
Cute. I would consider cropping out the 3 lights at the top and maybe a small portion of the shallow DOF at the bottom.

great bokeh in the lens
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2006 02:37:01 AM
Too narrow DOF.
01/18/2006 12:26:35 AM
Great DOF choice. Perfect theme for the challenge. The overall yellow tone bothers me a bit - not sure that it is the best choice for the photo.
I'm sure I'll be back to bump this one later.
