This is the little tiny statue on my bamboo vase.
I am working on DOF, and lighting. I think this is one of my better pictures! His head actually pops off easily! hehe..

Hi Da!

Seems I've seen this before :-) This picture is nice. It has great clarity and focus. ISO100 is nice and crisp. Your aperture of 4.0 gives enough DOF for a sharp foreground and softer background. I think the two things that stand out most is your lighting and subject matter. The DPC voters don't like statues. I've done them myself, and they don't fair well. And, your lighting. I think that it's a little harsh and if it was bounced or diffused some, the glare on the trunk would be lessened and softer. Your composition is nice, there just isn't that WOW that DPC voters look for. You met the competition theme well. I'd like to see some reshoots of this with more dramatic lighting. Maybe lower, or backlight to bring out a deeper mood in the shot.

I was 1 of the 8's. I like this shot a lot. It tells a story - or he looks like he's about to!

This has a very oil painting look to it. Unusual colors but nice earthy tones.
