well lit shot, well executed. Not sure that DOF really plays a role though.

nice image

very very well done!, a beutiful picture.

Everything looks sharp to me, so points lost for that. However, it's a beautiful picture and great lighting so I won't score low. Some will debate even though dof may be only a couple of inches, to me part of the photo should make it look like a wide aperture was used to make the sharp parts stand out. Here, just the black does that. (and the frame).

DOF is not very apparent in this picture. The high contrast between the background and the flower makes it look almost artificial. I think if a shadow would've been cast on the background as well or there was something to show that the background wasn't just a void of blackness, it would've helped it a bit.

Hi how did you light this?
12/24/2005 12:16:43 PM
Beautiful light - soft - well done.

smooth and simple -- one of my favorites this challenge

I don't think this is a great example of shallow depth of field, but it is an exquisite photograph nonetheless. The lighting and composition are perfect.

9-quite possibly my favorite in this challenge. Might i suggest some of that beautiful lighting added to the center?

This is so beautiful. Perfect lighting and shadows. So Georgia O'Keeffe like.

This is beautifully lit and rendered, but it conveys to me absolutely NO sense of "shallow DOF".

It takes alot to impress me with a flower photo. . .this one most definitely does! There is a wow factor extraordinaire! The lighting is out of this world! Good luck.

A nice picture but all seems in focus.
12/21/2005 06:13:42 PM
The whole rose seems in focus to me - this is a wonderful picture, but I see it as more a great use of light/dark rather than focus/out of focus.
12/21/2005 05:52:10 PM
Wonderful lighting, great title, good border. I would have liked a little more visible DOF.
12/21/2005 03:41:23 PM
A nice shot, no doubt, but it doesn't demonstrate the challenge topic too well (everything appears to be in sharp focus).
12/21/2005 11:31:44 AM
I do not see the DOF in this picture since there is no background - 5
12/21/2005 05:48:11 AM
Beauty. Pure and simple (10)
12/21/2005 02:45:04 AM
hard to tell if the DOF is shallow if there is only one visible object.
12/21/2005 01:33:13 AM
this is beautiful, just does not show shallow DOF to me.
12/21/2005 12:30:10 AM
This is beautiful -- composition, light, setup, everything. However, I'm not sure the depth of field is shallow; the entire rose looks to be in focus, and the background is black. GORGEOUS image, but since it's a technical challenge I feel like I shouldn't give this the 9 or 10 it would otherwise deserve. 7.
