    Camera Make: PENTAX Corporation
    Camera Model: PENTAX *ist D
    Image Date: 2008:08:02 17:39:31
    Flash Used: No
    Focal Length: 140.0mm (35mm equivalent: 210mm)
    Exposure Time: 0.022 s (1/45)
    Aperture: f/5.6
    ISO equiv: 200
    Metering Mode: Matrix
    Exposure: aperture priority (semi-auto)

    I was wondering how you got such good DOF with f/5.6 and i see its because of the focal distance. Nice shots in terms of DOF, i would put more of a solid neutral background behind the guitar though

    i like the first more, the second trails off too much, the texture of the guitar in the first also pulls it together well

    I know im new but maybe if the whole amp was in focus on the second it would look better? Just a thought.

    I like it simply because I just started playing the guitar 6 weeks ago :D

    Stuck on the stinkin F chord (no, the "F" doesn't stand for that, to all you non-guitar players.... :D)

    Wish I had a nice electric though. Mine is just a cheap junk acoustic.

    Actually not my guitar. It's my Uncles, and the amp was a rental that he had. But a nice setup regardless. It's actually a BASS amp, not a guitar amp.

    I think the focus should be on the first knob with an increased DOF.

    I actually did do that shot as well, but I didn't think it looked at good as this one did.

    I like the 1st, the DOF's really nice. A wee tip, give it a bit of a dust and polish before shooting, especially around the bridge and pick-up area. The camera will always show up the skank the eye doesn't see (as I discovered recently).

    Nice guitar btw, what is it?

    I like the first one, i've always like the way guitar strings go as the focus feathers out. I can see the cutout for the tone control but i can't see the selector, i'd just like to see more! that's my only crit really..

    A good dusting and shine is required, i know all about it, took ages trying to get this one clear, little bits kept appearing out of nowhere!

    Bass Guitar

    (i think i was testing out my 50mm there, shot with Velvia 100 i believe)
