    for a quick photo that turned out well, would look great on a poster for a horror film?

    I wonder how this picture would look with the focus on the knife.
    Have you tried that?

    I think the compositions is good.
    You say this looks better than if the knife were the main focus point. Thats something I would have said to try.
    Other than that, I think the shot lacks contrast.
    It's very bland/grey. I think even just boosting the contrast by 15/20 points will make it alot better. So use the original larger size and boost the file. Doing it on that small image just loses more quality.

    I think it could use a bit more contrast but i like the shot and the dof. I'd like to see the pinky finger completely in the frame though.
