Some brown rice. I used light from above and from the right side. I took about 30 shots until i got one that was the way i liked it. I wanted the background and forground to be out of focus.
I am new to this so go easy on me :)

the lighting is flat and the color is not very appealing.

WB needs adjusting. Looks yellow on the flooring.

Nice choice for texture. interesting POV and DOF.

Maybe a little wider DOF? Good materiel for a 'Textures' shot.

Lighting is a little flat & image a little uninteresting.

+ Texture are here but
- there isn't much else to look at.

Would have focused differently. I don't care for the blurr coming in first. Different colored background might have brought the rice in focus to the eye more

I docked for this focus technique. But I won't do that to you...nice shot.

If only there were a touch more interest at the point of focus - perhaps a spoon or something, just to break up the unrelenting similarity of this - even the background tones very closely with the rice. Not really enough detail to capture the texture of that rice where its in focus, even though sharpness seems ok.

Needs more DOF, IMHO.

To improve this shot, I'd suggest a bigger dof (the fuzzy sections don't add texture) and fulling in more fully with rice

Would have been good for the dof challenge. Texture is there, good photo technically, but no interest.
02/18/2004 05:25:22 AM
Nice DOF, good luck!

too much not in focus, DOF too shallow
