Thanks everyone! I'm glad so many of you got the same laugh out of the idea as I did : )

Shallow DOF isn't too popular here, and this camera does it better than most non-dSLR cameras. I thought having the arc of the rind in pretty-good focus would be enough, and I definitely wanted them fuzzing-out as they receeded. I didn't want to crop out more of the foreground because of the spacing on the right. I'm also wary of over-sharpening for both artifacting and size issues, and I couldn't create a mask to selectively sharpen the rind.

Ha! Very Subversive. I love the color scheme and the lighting. I just wish a little more of it were in focus.

This is funny. I'll give it to you.8. Try to nail the sharpness better in the foreground. Perhaps a smaller aperture. I've made it a mission to try to master dof. Still working at it :)

that only took me 7 seconds to get ... LOL ... If the focus were a little better on the foreground lime it would be stronger.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/19/2006 04:26:17 PM
hahaha! ... funny, I bet you're getting the crap beat out of your score though, wish the focus were sharper on your cut lime, but I really like your composition, also, maybe a boost in saturation and/or contrast, 7 for out of the box
