Playing with photographing marbles up close. I love seeing the refelections in them. Had my son model for me and act like he is shooting marbles. Used my macros lens.

Very cool shot. Good concept. Interesting. Composed nicely. The reflection in the marble is cool. Nice job.

Great use of narrow DOF.

It took me awhile to see the hand in the background but I love the reflection in the marble.

Pretty cool although I would like to see more focus on the marble. Good job!

Great focus on refraction in the marble. The DOF transitions seems rather abrupt and awfully harsh, perhaps a smoother transition. Other than my person nitpick this is a marvelous photograph.

nice perspective - very cool shallow dof as well.

a little more DOF would have been good but interesting capture. 6

Not a bad idea. I might have cropped a little closer.

The shallow DOF really works well here. The focus on the marble is very crisp which allows you to see a lot of detail in the marble. The texture of the floor contrasts nicely with the glassy, smooth texture of the marble. Nicely done! Wow this looks even better on my Mac! Really Pops!

Great concept - execution needs some work, I think. Be nice if it were in the dirt! And also if the image in the marble were a little more clear.
