Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Puzzle Macro (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-400D Rebel XTi
Lens: Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 II
Date: Jun 17, 2007
Aperture: n/a
ISO: 800
Shutter: 1/320
Date Uploaded: Jun 18, 2007

Reversed the 18-55 lens, handheld the lense to the body, had to crank up the ISO to 800 to get a a fairly short shutter speed, had to underexpose by almost two steps.

Subject: cloth pin.

Really suprised that this did so well, would I have known that this would do so good, then I would re-shot it with a deeper DOF.

Gorgeous, I gave this an 8. And I'm glad you did not shoot with a deeper DOF

Nice detail. And is it one of those things that my mom would use to hang my under-roos on to dry?

Very nice to see this clothe-spin. I think this image would be stronger if the DOF was wider to show the detail of the subject a bit more.

Metal spring in a clothespin. Nice textures in the wood, though a slightly larger dof would have captured it more clearly leaving a distinct contrast between wood and metal. Lighting is nice and soft too which I like.

obviously metal hardware of some kind but i like how it appears to be a #9 and the wood fraying is a nice touch.

I like it.

A clothespin! Good macro, very detailed, especially on the wood but I wonder is it enough of a puzzle for this challenge?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/20/2007 01:29:27 PM
clothespin? Beautiful closeup. I'm having a hard time figuring out if the focus works as it is, or doesn't. It's troublesome, when looking at it, that the front most part of the image is out of focus, and also that it is somewhat difficult to tell exactly where the focus is. But then, there's that little section inside the pin, where it's clear, and it looks beautiful. Anyway. ~7
