    Funny, when I first saw the shoes, I immediately thought of the former Soviet Union,... men like to wear shoes like those in that part of the world (Russia).

    And, speaking of Russia,.. I remember reading somewhere that there is an old Russian make of camera that is sought after for the "style" of picture it took. I wish I knew more about them.

    I like long and pointy. (I'm always afraid of messing up the toes though.)

    yea i get what you mean. they look turkish to me. when i lived in the
    netherlands, a lot of turks and they seem to like the pointy shoes of this world.

    mystery sov camera? probably a Fed (leica copy). after 1945, the
    soviets dismantled much machine tooling from the Zeiss works in Jena
    and carted it off to the Ukraine.

    Yeah, it's not easy, but kinda fun and sometime rewarding.
    If I may C&C:

    #1 Is cool (pun LOL), but what if you cropped it for just the top shelf of Heiny? I like the perspective, and mostly how you captured the light.

    #2 nice selective focus. I thought of this, only because I fail to think about it, how would that look at an angle, and including more of the black dot as a compositional element?

    #3 nice thin DoF. I love the texture of the key. But it immidiately reads as a key. I think it would be cool cropped entirely on the inside of the key so focus is on the texture, and the letter, which would also make the viewer think a little more about what it is.

    :thumbup:

    I will do this again also. I just shot 300 pics today that I have to sort through first.

    C&C is always welcome, even if I don't ask for it.

    The light is almost exactly how I wanted it to be. The only issue I had was trying to balance two different light sources (daylight - caps & cans, and the fridge light - background). I tried to get rid of the orangeness from the background, but it wasn't happening...

    After seeing it, I feel that I should have moved 8 or 10 inches to the right.
    Just the top shelf would probably be pretty cool. I'll have to try that before I drink it all. lol.

    I was going for symmetry (horizontal and vertical), but I don't think it worked out quite how I pictured it... I think for what I was going for, I need to shoot it straight on. The DOF is also smaller than I thought it would be... (I need to start using the DOF preview more.)

    In this one, I was trying to replicate a shot I took a long time ago that for some reason I really liked.

    This doesn't really have the same effect as the other one to me.

    I like your idea, getting closer to only include the flat surface of the key. I'll have to try that later.

    Now ... few hours after you took the beers photo, you need to retake it again and show us how many beers left.

    This is way harder than I thought it would be too.

    1) Turns out I need to dust a bit.

    2) I could have Sworn (In) that I could hold a camera steady.

    3) Time for a vacation.
