Any thoughts on the attached? I realise I've chopped a bit off the top left but, as the point of interest is the circular wine section, does this actually take anything away from the shot?

It's a cool shot. The composition looks fine and it is sharp where it matters.

I like the sharpness where it is meant to be and the crop is right on as I see it. Good contrast and do like it on the darker side as you have made this.

Post more please!

Wow, thanks for all your comments!

Boily, it was a Panasonic FZ5 set to the macro setting. It's just got the one lens, but it's a beast - 12x zoom.

You need the DOF running down the screw or this cork screw. Thats the point of interest. Before you do that its not going to work in my opinion.

Potential to be very good though.

Thanks LBoy, I'll give it another go with a greated DOF.

Nice shot, the crop doesn't bother may as your focal point is apparent. Did you use a setting in the camera to make b&w or did you do it post-processing? I'm quite a newbie just curious. (And, not familar with the camera used so this may be a really dumb question). It just looks as if it was shot on b&w film with no post-processing is why I ask - it's great.

Thanks melt.I took it as a normal colour shot, then changed it to BW in photoshop. I could have used the B&W setting in the camera itself but I've been led to believe that it's better to pp it as you have more control over the contrast and levels, etc.
