So, how good is it do you think?

Grass BLADE? Like its not a straw but a blade?
Oh well, guess its right, just sounds strange :D

Thanks for the comment :)

I even took one with slightly shorter DOF (wide open) but it did get a little too soft, the background was a little bit nicer but its all ruined if the drop ain't sharp enough of course.

Yeah, I like it Sebastian :-)

Also, yes it is called a blade of grass in the UK - I guess because some grass is sharp on the edges hence it being called a blade. I think the way Brian worded it makes it sound odd as he has said it back to front so to speak, it is usually termed 'a blade of grass'. Does that sound better and less odd lol

Thanks :)
Well, I mostly thought it sounded funny cause I thought of "blade" as in "leaf"....in Swedish a "leaf" is called "blad"...thought it was the same in english and thought it strange calling straws for blades :D
But now I get it, blade as in, well, razorblade or whatever.

Thanks you others too, macro junkie too. Glad you would have deleted it, so you wont post the same pics as I do ;)
