I can't believe either. After being a POTN member for more than 18 months, i have not posted any still life photo until now. :D I normally shoot birds and life subjects. Maybe that's why. LOL!

Well, since it was my own wedding, i couldn't help it. Oh, pardon the rock. I already spent big chunk of my savings on camera gears before i met my bride. I've promised her to pawn my gears after the honey moon (yeah right).:p

Tell me if these are garbage and i will not have another wedding again. :lol:

Photo #1: 75mm, f4, 1/3sec, ISO100

I like the concept of the first but it would have been better if you would have had the engagment anouncement under the rings and not something about Blood sugar.

The 1st image has pretty good use of composition. I would have liked seeing a touch better depth of field on the rings.

The 2nd image does not quite have as good a composition. If you had a bit more area below and to the right of the shoes (our left) it would have worked. I live the concept.

On both, if you have more area on the Raw files, please re-post the originals.

Garbage :)

only joking.

The depth of field is bang on for the first - agree about the Blood Sugar thing though.

I disagree about the composition on the second too - I think it's fine, although I don't go a bundle on the actual shot.

I agree with the newspaper thing. Did you have a wedding announcement in the paper? Maybe use that. Of find something from valentines day or something about some couple celebrating their 50th.

With the shoes I like the photo but would prefer it on hard wood floors instead of carpet. Maybe a dark wood.

Otherwise they look great!

Thanks Mike, Scott, goforphoto, D. Craig, GreatNorthWood, gardengirl, Dan my bro, and Nick for taking the time. I really appreciate your valuable feedback.
I like shooting still subjects, very different from birds hopping around. :)

These two photos are uncropped, just resized and pp'ed. So, i can only do tighter crop but not the opposite :). Ah, hardwood floor, I thought of that too but the only place in our apartment that is not carpeted, is the kitchen tile. Hehe....

The original idea in #1 is that i wanted the rings next to the Austin American Statement and it showed the date printed on the newspaper since the paper was bought on our wedding day. Unfortunately, unlike other state's newspaper, the date was printed on the far right corner which i couldn't get a good composition because the article title below the date is far worse - "North Korea Nuclear yaddeedda". Now the "Blood Sugar" isn't that bad huh. LOL!:lol:
Since the date is not in the frame, i agree with you all. Should get a newspaper with more romantic title. But then my grandchildren will not know Blood Sugar was actually the major news on their grandpa/ma's wedding day. Hahahaha......

D. Craig, feel free to post your sample. I'm eager to learn as this is a new experiment for me. I'm grateful for your input.

Oh, pardon the rock.

that's nothin'! My husband and I got engaged in high school so you can image what the ring cost! But he made it up to me this year by letting me buy my 30D and a few lenses. He said that's two months salary and my new "engagement ring" :lol:

As a POTN member, i think the red "ring" around a white lens is more precious. :lol:

Here is my version of the wonderful 2nd image. I could see the symbolism of it and this is how I see it presented.
