Cool shots - the high level of isolation from the background is really effective.

Yes, nice shallow DOF, makes me laugh when I keep reading comments about it being impossible on small sensor cameras.

Great shots LTZ.

joe30, it's definitely not impossible on small sensor cameras but it's always going to be harder. In particular, you need a fair distance between the subject and its background - the photographer has to work hard to pick the right subject in the right place; LTZ470 did a superb job with these.
