    The top result was obtained by selective use of aperture to control depth of field.

    Shooting wide open (small f/stop number, eg f/2.8) will cause only one marble to be in focus. Maybe even half of one marble.

    Stopping down to say f/22 will cause the whole string of marbles to be in focus.

    I hope that helps.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    In your second shot...the wall is in focus but neither of the objects is sharp. I think you were trying to get the dark one in focus and it looks like you (or your auto focus) missed it.

    Like the Doc said...this is an experiment with DOF, which is controlled by changing the aperture.
