My son's toy Bigfoot truck with big wheels. Yeah, it's pretty darned unoriginal and there is some harsh lighting reflections, I know. I just wanted to test out my new lens.

Cropped, adjust contrast, resize, USM, save.

Technically very well done, like the extreamly shallow DOF you are using. Most often I think that photographing toy´s are not going to give good results on this site and often I dont find thous images creative. But because of the overal quality of this image I think you are going to get away with it.

Very sharp focus on the wheel. Good DOF shot.

I like this one a lot, but the reflection of light bothers me. 8

Just a little too shallow. Good job none the less.

Great clarity in the wheel against a blurred background. Really helps to draw your attention to the focal point.

Great DOF. The compositon though can be improved. Maybe a little more crop of the focused wheel? 6

nice and sharp shot, but i find no significant composition... try to create a composition with your subject... make it a character in a story... don't just shoot

Toy trucks did not get high marks from me--except this one. The extremely limited depth of field made the difference. Good luck!

Think more DOF would have helped.

Interesting dof, imaginative composition. Just a little too much glare in the shot for me.
