Challenge: Shallow DOF (Advanced Editing I)
Camera: Fujifilm FinePix S602Z
Location: Home studio (family room)
Date: Feb 8, 2004
Aperture: F2.8
ISO: 160
Shutter: 1/7.5
Galleries: Macro, Studio
Date Uploaded: Feb 8, 2004

Placed fishing reel/rod in the background with the Daredevil lure in foreground. (I used white foam-board for base & background).

Editing: Used clone tool to tone down a bright spot/reflection on the upper-right area of the fishing reel, as well as another small spot on the handle of the reel. I also cloned out two very small spots on the hook, and a small area of red glare on lure. - Performed slight levels and color adjustments, sharpened, resized, and bordered.

The hooks are the perfect selection for your main subject. Nice color connection of the lure to the reel.

Good DOF and meets the challenge quite well. I'm a fisherman too, so I like it.

very nice composition. I like your foxus being on the hook. the reel blurred in the background adds nicely to the balance of the image and provides good context. I wish your tones we a little better though, with the whites being brighter, but I'd still give it an 8. well done.
