    Unpacked puzzle

    Hi All,

    I have not posted for some time I'm sorry to say.
    I do though, have a photo to share. I showed this photo in a photography class that I am taking. The other students liked it. Funny I didn't get any comment from the teacher???

    Hope you like it as well. Always open to C&C

    Hi Eric,

    What confuses me about this shot is your use of DOF. The sharpest focus is near the vertical center, so my attention is drawn there, but the only thing I can find there is some indistinguishable, half-buried piece that looks a bit like the back of a bee (with two yellow spots on a black background). Since I can't tell what that is, or why it would be of special interest, I keep looking for something else, and I can't find it. It seems to me that the special piece near the center of the image should be removed completely, and/or reshoot with the entire image in focus. Just my humble opinion... perhaps I just don't understand the shot.

    Hi Al,

    Interesting comments. I'll need to play with the aperture to get it all in focus (with a different puzzle as this one is finished). At first I found the effect nice, but now that I really look at it, I see what you mean.

    Thanks for your insight.

    Willie or Jiro is fine by me.

    Re: Unpacked puzzle

    In the same line of thought with Al, I find the image too busy with no definite subject to focus my attention. I hope I am not too harsh on you, Erik.

    Hi Jiro,

    Not harsh at all. Both you and Al and the other posts I read here give me a better understanding and appreciation for "reading" photographs. After my Camera Basic class that I am taking, I plan on taking the class on composition to understand it better and to take photographs that are actually appealing and eye-catching.
