« on: January 31, 2010, 07:09:37 PM »
Chat here:

The subject for next weeks competition is .....

Sharp

OK, following on from 'out of focus' let''s do the opposite. And add a bit of 3D too. Take a picture of something that is perfectly focused from front to back, or of a sharp subject. No flat things, the picture must have some depth. Just as long as the picture is pin sharp from corner to corner.

I hope everyone is thinking about this, hence the silence. . .

An idea popped into my mind this afternoon while I was shoveling rock. I'll see if I can get it done tomorrow. If my back stops aching.

Went for the needle and thread theme and found out afterwards that I've seen snooker cues with sharper ends than that needle.  :o  I'll stick with that topic but if I find a sharper needle then i'll exchange pics. :-[


EDIT.  Well I found a sharper needle so swapped it. ::)

Plenty of sharp objects :)  thought I'd be different..   really old 12v light bulb I used to use to flatten & cycle nicads for racing remote control cars, had to go and pinch the charger, couple of battery's & bulb from my little brother who inherited all my kit many moons ago  ;D    Jeez I really want a good macro lens, gonna have to be the ef100L when I have some spare cash  :beer:

I like this one best



But I think this one is a bit sharper overall, so I'll enter it..



Damn fine entries so far, not holding my breath for any votes this week  :legit:

Damn!! Should have read the details before doing an entry!!

Just taken this shot but with it being a macro there is a shallow DoF which is outside of the comp guidleines!!



Back to the drawing board......

I submitted last weeks picture without fully reading up on your requirements and it came first. :-[ So maybe you could get away with it. ::)
