Default Macro shot - VW New Beetle (1/18 model)

Here it is. Wish I have one of these in real size

Nice car. If you had used a larger aperture you would have got the whole shot sharp and not just the front. Just an advice.

Thank you Klaus, I experimented a bit. I will do as you suggested and I'll post new photo here.
Thank you for advice, I appreciate it!
Cheers,

I disagree with Klauss. He's got the right idea but backward. For better depth of field, you want as small an aperture opening as you can get. Small aperture means larger f number. A smaller aperture will result in a slower shutter speed so a tripod is a must. You may also want to use a higher ISO setting.

I guess that's what Klaus meant.
But I think the DOF of that pic is just right.
The blur in the back of the model makes it look bigger.
