    It's really hard to get a small catchlight when his eye is like a mm wide...

    I honestly didn't even realize he had the yellow/brown iris color until I took the pic. I thought his eye was solid black...

    you tools are no fun.

    guy takes a macro snapshot of a teeny tiny cute little snapper turtle that's chilling on his couch, and people talk about fucking fixing the dof and focus stacking....

    :rolleyes:

    The amount of details on his face/head is astonishing. But yeah, too shallow DOF, would've like to see some of shell.

    DOF is thin with macro shots, it's the nature of the beast

    I think everyone is bitching about the DOF because it's shallower in the foreground. The composition is good, but if his head would have been in front of his body (distance wise) rather than the other way around, not so many people would be complaining.

    you posted an image on a photography forum, people gave their opinions (which I agree with, the depth of field IS too shallow, and your defensiveness and excuse of using F11 was pathetic. The turtle shell detail would have been really interesting and lenses stop down further than F11) and you bitched about it. therefore, you look like an idiot.

    Thanks

    Yeah, they do stop down further than that asshole, but how about you go back and look at the fucking exif before you come in here and act like you know what you're talking about.

    Here, i'll post it for you:

    # Exposure Time (1 / Shutter Speed) = 1/15 second = 0.06667 second
    # Lens F-Number/F-Stop = 11/1 = F11
    # Exposure Program = manual control (1)
    # ISO Speed Ratings = 400

    I was already at 1/15th of a second and iso fucking 400 with f11, so without setting up studio strobes, there was no where left to go. I chose the area of focus I wanted, and took the shot I wanted to take.

    My bitching to idrive and msiguy is partially in jest because I know who the fuck they are, and partially because focus stacking a living, moving animal isn't really possible, but you can shut the fuck up and get the fuck out of my thread if you think you're going to get away with coming in here and acting like you know something I don't.

    Go back to the main forums.

    I wasn't being a douche man, just throwing out ideas. :hsughno: I don't like the DOF because like mentioned the foreground is so out of focus my eyes get drawn to that instead of the turtle head.

    I think I would have liked it a lot more if it had been something more like this:
