Photographer’s Notes
Got a new camera for Christmas. I wanted something very light, very small that would slip into a pocket of my motorcycle jacket. Ended up with a Canon G7X. On a brief trip last coupe of days I shot everything as I worked to understand controls and bond wit it. Here’s a macro shot of a knitted sweater my wife found in a yarn shop on Orcas Island.

*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

A somewhat appealing image that meets the challenge.

The artificial light has, I assume, come from the onboard flash of the camera? I like the shallow DOF, I like the dark background, I like the shapes and composition in general. What I am not keen on is the inevitable hotspots of overblown highlights that very often result from this type of shot using on-camera flash, it rarely gives the sort of results I am after but you have used it for the purpose of this challenge.

I like the detail of the fibres with the OOF elements against the dark background it makes the image a little more intriguing. Thanks for your submission, Sid
