    this is my first print for my photo class, we were looking at different filters and the amount of contrast. what do you guys think?

    I think it's an odd shot. But you can't help but like it.

    I think your DOF is perfect. I have to agree with duck in saying that it's an odd shot but it works so well.

    I like your choice of perspective here and the DOF sets it off beautifully. It's a quirky little shot. I like it! :D

    I have real trouble understanding stuff that's this complex.

    i dig it mr. davis, 'tis a bit of an oddball shot, but it works for me. I particularly like the fact that its quite centered, perhaps going against the rules of photography a bit, but it certainly captures one's attention.

    the lighting is cool too, the barb is lighted on one side but dark on the other. nice work matie :)

    thanks for all the coments. about the framing of it, i wanted to work in thirds but at the same time make it different. that is why only thing in focus it on that top third line, plus when playing with the image it just didnt look right shifted to one side or the other. just kinda playing with the rule of thirds my own way. thanks again.
