    Still Life-Red Hot Chillies

    These Chillies are called "Dollo Khursani" in Nepali.These are very hot ;one cannot eat this small chilli one at a time.I was attracted to its' colour.I made a set up of all white make the colour stand out.But i was struggling with auto focus in my Tamron 90mm macro.At last i was able to focus in manual mode.I do not know the reason for failure to focus.It could be due to loss of much contrast there.Anyway how much i have succeeded can be judged only by the seasoned viewer.I invite all of CiC members to view my image and give valuable opinion or suggestions.Still Life-Red Hot Chillies

    hi.

    nice image well done!

    I could be wrong because i dont do much macro work but i think its better to use manual focus. theres a program that you can buy for about 15 thats really good for macro work you can try it for free and see what you think. its called control my nikon. It takes multiple pictures and adjusts the focus at your stated increments allowing you to stack them if you want. you will need a tripod but no focusing rails. Its good for tethered studio work as well.

    i think your crops a little tight and would have included the bottom of the bowl and the stalks.

    Nice image. One thought - watch the edges of the frame. Some of the stems are leading the viewers eyes right out of the image. You might want to try to compose the image so that this is not the case to see how that works compositionally.
