    I cant decide if i like these or not. The windows are kinda blowen out and i cant really decide if they are really that interesting. What do you think.

    Wow, red wall, red felt.... wooo I'm seein' red.

    1 has a very distracting background.

    2 is prob my fav if I had one

    3 has a whole lot cut off that takes away from the pic IMO

    4 should have at least the whole stick

    That said, pool isn't really my thing so, *shrug* The focus looks nice.

    1. Don't dig the legs in the background - upper left.
    2. Washed out foliage in the background & the cues being cut short.
    3. See #2.
    4. See #2.

    If I had to pick a fav...It's say #4 though. I prefer the angle here.

    Why such a narrow aperture and long shutter speed in all the shots?

    I changed the shutter and aperture around. These just happen to be almost the same. I just thought these were the best angles.

    I tried to black out the background on the 2nd one but the left side of the pool table has that reflection on the wood. Does anyone know how to get rid of light spots like that in photoshop. Is the best way the burn tool?

    Oh, so you mixed up your aperture and shutter speed? Like, reversed them....?

    I did some shots at larger and some at smaller aperture. I had it set on aperture priority so the camera set the shutter. All of these just happen to be smaller apertures.
