    As I'm new to photography as a hobby, I would appreciate any input you might have. The lucite paper weight and the anemone were done with an Olympus D-460 while the bit and penny (which were inspired by hobbes) were done with my newest cam, a Dimage Z3.

    That penny has some pretty amazing DOF.

    Welcome and looking forward to seeing more.

    I agree with Eric here on the penny. Perfect DOF, lighting and colours are very nice and the relief structure comes out brilliantly.

    I don't understand what I see in the second photo....

    The third and fourth are really good, but I want to say that paper weight is really cool. Ahh.... Atari. :D

    Thanks for the welcome and input everyone! I've got a feeling I'll be hanging around here for a while, you're a nice group from what I've seen and have good suggestions. :)

    I'm glad you guys like the penny, that's my fave at the moment to. As for the paper weight, well it's just one of many Atari things that are in my collection. I collect classic video game memorabilia and I used to work in the game industry for a little over 10 years (and Atari Corp was one of my employers). So on occasion you might see me posting some photos of items from my collection, although I really enjoy pics of the ocean, the coast, tide pools, etc since I'm a native San Diegan, so the ocean will most likely be my main focus.

    Love the penny one too although they are all really good.
    Also, looking forward the the ocean photos. My family is in San Diego too. I miss the ocean, so you will NEVER bore me with 'em!!!!

    I love the colour in the penny and perfect crop/ framing.
