Funny title. I think you might need a few more white beans to establish a more interesting focal point. Great concept.

Funny title. You made good use of the DOF to make the point of attention stand out. 7.

Color is used more to isolate than shallow DOF.

I very much like the texture in the 'in focus' section of this photograph. I know its a shallow DOF challenge, but this subject would benefit from a deeper DOF...

perfect shot, stupid title. titles shouldn't matter, but they do round out the whole package. they give you a place to stretch yourself, which is good, when it's obvious you have the equipment, eye, and vision for creating interesting shots. do yourself a favor before your next submission and ask if your title is really the one you would want associated with a possible museum piece... i'm not voting you down for the title, i'm just pointing out that i wish you had spent some time thinking about it, especially considering that this is going to be seen by a lot of people.

Hey, this reminds me of my "cumin" shot. White beans add an intriguing touch.
