    Love the DoF and the low-key of the shot. I wish that the eyes were both in focus, but given the difficulty of the shot itself, I'd have to say... mighty fine job :)

    Thank you, I had hell trying to ghe him to look at the camera much less stay still for the shot. In order for me to have gotten both eyes I would have had to either remove a macro filter or shoot amaller aperture whitch I was really pushing my luck with to beginwith I think I was shooting 1/8 as it was.

    Agree with Rufus,

    Very nicely done especially with what you were working with! Love the warm tones.

    I bet that was worse than taking a picture of a toddler. What was the total magnification of your macro rings?

    Indeed, I had to bin a couple that where little more than a hair ball. :lmao: As for the total magnification, I'm still new to the filter thing so I can't exactly read them. I do believe I had all three (+1/+2/+4) on at the time.


    :raisedbrow: I think I accidently might have left my UV filter on it softening an already super shallow DOF. I had been going through the roll exparimenting with the Nikon wile doing some other stuff and stuck the POS UV filter on to protect the filters wile I ran off for whatever else needed doing.

    *EDIT*
    I was wondering how long it would take for someone to pick up on the reference :lol:

    That is one of two.

    Thanks
