this is nice... i love the simplicity of it... when you are shooting closeups of flat images like this one, it is sometimes beneficial to use a smaller aperture to bring everything into sharp focus... good shot :) = 7 - jmsetzler

Ah yes, good old jeans. A comfortable feel. Would have liked greater depth of field, so you'd end up with less in the photo out of focus. But if you're like me, you may not have that control on your camera...

This picture really has character, I think. It looks casual, yet it is well focused (well, except for one spot), and shows the texture really well. Nicely done. karmat

Very nice picture. The only thing I would change is that the out of focus part on the left is a bit distracting.

Good show of texture. Would like it better if it was all in focus.

That's a fun interpretation of the texture challenge and totally valid. Effective way of cropping the image. The unraveled fabric peeking out of the pocket is a nice touch.

Technical Aspects5
Meets Challenge8
Total Score8

For those that are just learning, like me.

Composition: Scoring in this area is based on basic composition of a picture and includes the rule of thirds, balance, cropping, and curved and diagonal lines. Subject matter that does not lend itself to the picture or otherwise unwanted is also considered here.

Originality: Scoring in this area is based on pictures or concepts that I have seen, as well as how much effort you have invested in the picture. Usually a little something that sets it aside from a snapshot. Does it make me want to come back for another look? You know things like that.

Technical Aspects: Focus, exposure, lighting, and other special effects (done by the camera), and post processing are all considered in this category.

Meets Challenge: This is based on my interpretation of if you, have/have not, met the challenge. This is fairly simple but quite important for this site.

There are many sites that can give you assistance in achieving better skills in photography, but I think the best way to learn is to take pictures and show them to other people. Believe me when it is a good one you will know it.

Good luck!

Good shot. Reminds me what I love about my blues.

Love the shallow DOF.

Who would think something as simple as blue jeans could offer such great texture.
07/23/2002 01:31:00 PM

depth of field seems a bit shallow, since the part on the left is out of focus.
07/23/2002 12:35:00 AM
too bad the focus was not better...
07/22/2002 10:52:00 PM
great concept for texture but need something more eyecatching section or pattern of different color thread
07/22/2002 09:42:00 PM
These look like some well worn jeans. Cool idea.
07/22/2002 08:16:00 PM
Needs greater depth of field.
