    Interesting.. If that stamp had been more clear it would have really set the photo.. Still, a cool shot top right circle seems a bit funky in comparison to the rest of them..

    Cheers.

    @sovietdoc: well i'm supposed to document circles and well they are circles :D

    @R.D: thanks....well the top right circle has a magnetic lasso around it which lassoed by a noob(me) and as for the stamp i have tried many other perspectives this seems to the be the least reflective i found

    Yeah it's an interesting shot, but I can't really comment on it because I don't really get it.. If all of them were withing DOF maybe it'd be better?

    @sovietdoc: No problem....and about DOF it would have been really hard cause low lighting and big differences in height

    The fact that only one is in focus is what I like about it. I'm not too keen on the placement of the one that is though. Too close to the middle to not actually be in the middle. Other than that I think it's great. Lighting, contrast, everything.

    That works pretty well as an abstract. Have a look at it rotated 90° CW, as a horizontal photo.

    thanks....actually i cropped it the original is dead center
    @rosshole: :taped sh: :lol: but i was going for the blur effect i mean i was shooting at f1.8
    @KmH: it looks good when you rotate counter-clockwise 90 deg cause of the stamp

    Ok, but as a response to the comment, I was pointing out that using a tripod can solve the problem of low light and get you a greater depth of field. You stated that it was too difficult, and I gave you an easy solution to fix it.
