Default Close up Using 18-55 DA

Which close up do you like better? The longer shot I Just threw in there.

Cool shot! I think I like the one with the foreground more in focus (smaller aperture), but isn't it fun to play with dof? And for a non-macro lens, the kit lens does a pretty good job with close-ups.

Cool shots. I like the second one the best, for the glow of the tube, but I'm slightly distracted by the reflection on the glass above.

I'm going to re-shoot when it darker in the house to get the tube better. I did this with my FZ30. here is that one.

Yes DOF is really fun. I do 3d computer modeling, and here is a model of a turntable I made, and rendered in Lightwave with DOF. Lightwave handled the DOF pretty well

I agree...perhaps all you have to do is put a black curtain behind you.

Interesting subject...

Very nice Tony!
Personally, of the first 3, I like the first one best. Perhaps its because it tells the story better... Top notch audiophile gear! Clean, modern lines, uncluttered, Classy looking.
But, then I saw the FZ30 shot! That's very cool!
I used to do some 3d modeling years ago, its a lot of work but, fun too. You did good.

Very nice pics. I have to say I agree with Goldwinger -- the shot you took with the FZ30 is my favorite as well.

Very interesting & nicely composed view. I prefer #2 shot. Nice also to see how well the P&S did in your capable hands.

Thanks everyone. I will try to shoot this again at night to replicate the FZ30 shot. I'll tell you for a p/s the FZ30 has quite the lens.
