This rocks...you were robbed! Incredible colors and luminosity...love the shallow dof. I could spend days on end looking @ this but I'll just add it to my favs instead...great job!

explanation: the shallow DOF was intended to isolate the row of shortest sockets, the infantry men, between the other bigger, taller ones. the green color made them more soldier-like.

love your title and composition, would have liked a greater aperture..more of the soliders in focus! :)

I like the idea and DOF here. Not too fond of the green hues, but I wonder what different white balance settings would have produced. I like it though for sure.

I like the dof and the effect of 'diffused' highlights at the back. No PS work can create this.

Green isn't a color I'd normally associate with tools. Neither is soft focus. You pulled it off. Good job.

I like the colors used in this one. And the fact that you only focused in on a couple of them.

I like this type of shot where the main subject is surrounded by similar objects. I wonder how this would look under the ROT. Lime green hue is a nice touch.

A bit more depth of field would have made this an even better shot.

For this picture to fit the title I would want all the "men" to be in focus - good composition

very nice use of green to 'solderize' the sockets

interestign use of color and shallow depth of field... this nicely isolates the single socket... great shot :)

the lack of focus, intentional or not, doesn't work for me

Nice DOF.
