Challenge: Accidental Letters (Basic Editing III*)
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Location: Grand Falls, NB

Aperture: F1.4
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/60sec

Saw the letter D while having supper tonight. I used one flash (550EX) and an umbrella for lighting. I really should have used RAW for this one because the color cast was way off. I played with Color Balance a bit to try to get it right. I like it. The only thing I'd change would be the blown out portion on the bottom of the cup ... makes it blend into the fabric. I know I'll get some flack from some people because the DOF is too shallow, but I chose to sperate the stem from the background elements.

Déjeuner is french for breakfast.

Cheers.

Canon 50mm F1.4 set @ F1.4

Nice use of DOF. Good composition. You might have a natural flair for photographing "elements". You could try using some soft yellow light on a similar collection of things -Just a suggestion. :D

I'm such a coffee lover that coffee shots are always high scorers with me.

Nice job. Like the blurred background behind the sharp "D." Simple and effective composition. Cropped well...nothing distracting going on.
