My wittle cutie baby pacman fwoggy <3

It was kind of a last minute shot.

I took a macro of my pacman after it ate a mealworm.
I used the terrarium light + turned on a flourescent bulb so I could do a shorter exposure and get it nice n' crisp.

I like it, hope it qualifies as abstract enough.

Critique Club Review:

Focus is good, depth of field is a bit shallow. The 50 ISO gave you a nice grain free image, but the large aperature required gave you the shallow depth of field. In this composition, the viewer's eye is drawn to the frogs eyes. When encountering another person or creature, we humans tend to look at the eyes. Since they were a bit soft, you got a complaint of soft focus. However, the area further back is quite sharp, so it wasn't a focus problem.

Lighting is good; color, saturation and hue are excellent.

Personally I really liked the colors, shapes and especially the textures of the skin in the sharp focus area. I would love to see this picture re-done with just the back of the frog in view.

The water droplets, skin texture, colors and shapes, if all were in focus would make a photograph that I would like to hang on my wall. A smaller aperature as mentioned above, and more direct angle from the camera so that the distance from the lens is more uniform, would help here.

This picture has the bones to make a really great photograph. I hope you take more.
