    These are all very interesting! I really like the difference in the textures in the 2nd shot. Soft and hard delicate and rough! Good job!! : )

    Is this a lensbaby or something similar? You're getting really smooth edges.

    Was this shot in film or digital?

    I really like the 2nd one. The 3rd one is ok too, but the placement and angle of the 2nd one is much better. The 4th one comes close to being excellent, but to me, the feathers fade into the background too much. If you had had a little bit of side light on just the feathers (maybe used a small flash light to paint the feathers?) I think they would have really stood out and this would have turned it into an outstanding image. The first one doesn't do anything for me, but I can't really say why.

    The whole concept is an excellent one.

    Actually I think the fourth is my fav! The lighting and the feathers are perfect. You can almost feel the softness. The others are nice too, but something about the fourth really sticks out. Nice job!!!

    I'll say #2 for here also. The composition of the feather against the other textures is really nice. The black matte around it really gives it a nice depth and contrast.

    thanks you guys!

    DocF, this was in digital, all shot with add on 'homemade' (not really, but it's not really supposed to be used this way) macro lens, which causes the shallow DoF and soft edges.

    good suggestion, mike, about the fourth shot. thanks!

    Ditto what Diamond says. I like the 2nd one and the 4th one the most. Great idea as well for a series.
