    Hi there, Two things about this picture grab my attention:

    1. The picture doesn't appear to be straight.
    2. For me the DOF could be a bit deeper - It's very short at the moment and a bit more ashtray in focus would help it a lot - The picture feels (for want of a better word) 'Strangled' by the short DOF.

    :)

    Just a thought:
    There is a lot of conversation on this site about DOF. Is it not sometimes the photographer's motive to take a shallow depth of field, trying to convey his emotion of the subject...which may not be what others are seeing

    The angle of the shot is throwing me off a little. I would experiment to see what angle works best, especially since the ash tray is round :mrgreen:

    Thanks! No, I shot this in Aperture priority.

    Yeah, I can see that it's a bit crooked now. :lol:

    Yeah, I think I will try shooting it again. Thanks!
