hey look, i was the last comment all those years ago! I started a personal side challenge sometime ago, it was very specific "common objects in b$w in shallow dof", it was odd but i enjoyed it. i really like this type of thing, i need to start it up again. thanks for inspiring me!

If it glowed it would be like gold jewelry.

I think you can use Elmers glue and add some gold glitter, it does come off. If Idnic can dot to her entire daughter...

Nice, simple and clean. I definitely like the dof and the angle.

Wow! That's about as close to a fork as my eyes have ever been.
Great detail and nice composition.

I agree. The composition isn't perfect. But I found composition at such close range really tough - that lens is quite heavy and I couldn't get the tilt of my cheap tripod quite right, so I'd have to start moving the legs to get it into a suitable position, then move the fork around a bit. When you're working with millimeters, you have to have a lot of patience to get the perfect shot, and it's been a tiring few days, so my patience wasn't that great. As far as lighting goes, I've still got a lot to learn.

Thanks fotomann. I can't believe it myself, considering I had to do it using manual focus, which is something of which I have very little experience and even less confidence.
