Very nice use of perspective and DoF here; I especially like the drops you captured inside the pitcher. Just had a drink, did you? :)

your macros are so good. You always nail the correct dof for the right mood.

Interesting perspective. I would never have guessed what it was!

As others have said, this could be more precisely level and symmetrical, but it's a unique angle on an everyday object. Good eye!

Amazing how ordinary objects seem to take on a life of their own. This looks like a very happy kettle!

I tried out cropping but for some reason it just didn't feel right.


I'll bet your right. Happens to me all the time. I do have a habit of straightening and leveling everything. Must be my training as a painter. Like your photograph.

Cool capture and it does look like a robot. I will say that it does seem crooked or off balanced but like you said cropping it may not have looked right.
