    I suck at this :rofl:

    DOF is too shallow on most due to lack of ambient/flash/tripod

    theres a lot of potential there but pretty much all of them either suffer from poor framing, too shallow DOF as you said, or strange choice of focus.

    overral i like the last rock the best.

    I actually like them all, but the DOF does appear shallow in a lot of them but understandable given your stated shooting conditions. My favorite is the last one. The blue background almost gives the impression of a much larger cliff or something with the ocean in the background.

    strange choice of focus is likely due to using AF.

    would've used MF but I'm home from school and don't have my tripod

    it was also like 6 degrees outside. not making excuses, i know they suck, and I posted them to hear how shitty you guys think they are :mamoru:

    I really like #2. And agree with the others the dof is a little shallow in most of the shots.
