Wink Macro Challenge #17 - DOF (time to award karma)

The theme for our seventeenth Macro Challenge is DOF. Yep, Depth Of Field. Macro shooters know that this is something we have little of, and as such it can be a struggle getting enough of your subject in focus. Show us your DOF winners - whether it be the massive amount of DOF you achieved by using focus stacking or the creative use of very limited DOF (my fave).

This challenge will run throughout the month of January 2009.

You may submit your own original work shot during or before the challenge. I encourage everyone to get out and make some NEW photos for this challenge.

Please post your images in this thread along with any technical information you would like to share such as camera, lens, shutter speed, aperture, iso, lighting conditions, post processing, location, subject details, etc.

At the end of the month, we'll all award karma for outstanding work.

** A gentle reminder that this contest is intended for macro and close up images only. **

Here are a couple that I tried this morning.

They are HDR so I don't know if this will work for this thread. I think that they still meet the rules. Close-up and DOF.

Please feel free to let me know what you think.



Here is another...



Thank you for looking.

Happy 2009!!!

Jordan

Here is another one that I used Topaz Adjust to change the effect.

Let me know what you think.

Rense,

I am not used to seeing anything in color from you.

That table really stands out.
