Changing the camera angle to be more ove the tip of the subject may have helped a little.

Either it's my night shift or I am slowly loosing sanity, but I imagine a few rosy-faced clerks in the City dressed in pin-striped suits. Very nice. A bit deeper dof on the main pencil would be appreciated.

My eye!

Pencils, books, and money seem to be a DOF theme...

I think this image had a little too shallow DOF. The place where me eye initially looked (the middle of the pencil) was out of focus.

Very impressionistic image, and like the detail on the focussed tip of the pencil......
