    Well I had a comment or two on the DOF of this picture... I personally really liked the focus, because it brought out the grit of the steel, and suggested the rest... I don't know, it just really appealed to me. What do you guys think? Should I have focused on the cylinder instead?

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    Its hard to tell what it is... I would have extended dof a little and maybe would have shown more of the barrel. Just my 2 cents tho.

    Where you have your plane of focus there is no element of any interest to catch the eye.
    It would have been a much better picture if you had focussed on the front of the chambers.

    That was my first impression as well, which I liked.

    After reading Hertz's comment, I think he might be right, but there's only one way to find out. :)

    Thanks for the feedback all, I think I'm going to try and reshoot it later and see how it turns out. =)

    Check my latest thread in the general galleries section... I kind of retook the shot... but it's different. Not as good, I think. =\
