Hi ritchievalens,

May I wish you a warm welcome to the CameraLabs forum.

Interesting photo but I find it difficult to look at. :oops: Depth of field is too extreme for me with not even the whole head in sharp focus. Central placement and a distracting background don't work for me either but those are all very personal views and not only may others more artistically literate than I find a lot to like but the effects I describe may be exactly what you wanted.

So please don't take my thoughts too seriously. Don't forget our monthly On Assignment competition.

Thanks for your comments.
This was one of the first pics I took with my new Canon 450D, and it was also behind glass at the Reptile aquarium, and the little critter wouldnt stay still :-)

You can try cropping a bit from the right to get rid of that black bit, which is distracting.
