Challenge: Wheels (Basic Editing I)
Camera: Canon EOS-300D Rebel
Location: Dining Room Table
Date: Apr 6, 2004
Aperture: 5.6
ISO: 400
Shutter: 1/60 sec
Date Uploaded: Apr 6, 2004

This is my first submission with the 300D. I am amazed how much better the quality is than from my Precious, C5050Z.
Anyway, I wanted to create an artificial scene here but keep it simple at the same time. The BG is a blue vase that created the illusion of stars/lights, maybe those reflecting off a body of water.
All & all, I was very pleased with the shot.

Well, I gave you a 7, but then again, I realized you were playing with DOF. The one thing I did think of was that the light should have been a little softer on the man, and keep the highlights within range.

And, I agree with most others, background color was great.

I think the figure should have been in focus, but the image does have a certain eye-pleasing aspect.

nice idea and nice backgound. Might have played round with the depth of view a little (aperture) but perhaps the way you have it is best

the background blu thingy is distracting, as well as the flannel looking surface. maby a closer crop to the wheel would help.

greater DOF would make the object stand out more. there is also a blur or blur effect on the front corner of he buggy which is very distracting and unpleasing. <5>

I like how the shallow DOF focuses attention on the wheel.

I like this alot. Nice DOF and background treatment....how did you do it!? Creative use of the subject, I think the wheels are dominate enough that it certainly fits the challenge. Nice job

this is a nice shot... i have a wheel in the photo... as a subject... i have the very blurred man who is kind of disturbing,,, but over all it's almost a nice shot...

I have a little rickshaw rather similar to this one. Something like this was used in the West for a time as well. I was about to complain that the figure is out of focus, but I am assuming that you wanted to concentrate on the 'wheels' and let everything else be secondary. Even if you didn't... you have.
