Very nice use of that razor-thin depth of field. Such simple subjects but you've made them look so good.

Thanks Steve, this was really a different kind of shooting for me. It gave me LBA for a good macro lens as I shot these by screwing 3 macro filters onto the stock lens which is a pain when you are out in the cold fumbling with them..

Nice ones Scott.
Try having the subject (area in focus) off centre - one of the rule of thirds placements, and stop down some more the closer you get to the subjects.

My contribution...

I've been shooting more "macro" stuff lately. Primarily using my son's toys. Never a shortage of material!
