    I think its great... Not an ordinary thing to photograph which makes it stand out more, for me at least.. I never think to take shots like that.

    I like it. I confess I thought you'd done motion blur or something in PS at first, which diminished the impact it had on me. Then I noticed that f stop and thought, Well now! :cheer:

    Q: Why the decision to go sepia? I think it softens what should be a tack-sharp image in stark B&W. Just curious.

    It's a great image, regardless. :D

    thanks for comments

    terri - here's a version in colour and straight greyscale:

    colour:

    greyscale:

    sepia flavour:

    I totally agree, the greyscale puts the most emphasis on the razor sharpness of the razor tape, though the colour also looks sharp with the blueness of the blades.

    I do love DOF factor of 1.8, however I would have to admit that this type of image is quite hard to do well[/i ] in pshop! Typically it can take up 3-5 layers just to get the DOF right (not to mention time!) - whew - now my camera takes care of that for me! Wohooo I love that new lens!
