Uncapped Creativity by RawPoetry Uncapped Creativity by RawPoetry
was in a creative slump today, so I refused to let myself go to Panera and get a bagel until I took a photo I was happy with. This is the result, about 3 hours later, and now I'm really freaking hungry.

Consctructive criticism is greatly appreciated.

your pictures are fantastic. last week your mom showed me your work when I was visiting...I'm your grandmother's cousin in California. It's funny, you take pictures of small things that are very near and I take pictures of large things that are very far...must be in the genes!

The focus is good, though part of me wishes the top of the thumb was in focus as well... mostly because that, for me, is where my eyes are drawn to almost automatically for some reason?

I do like how the top of the jar is focused instead, and it's amazing how you've got the bokeh spiralling out there.

I'm not ... I don't know. Part of me feels that the jar lid should be focused as well, but then we're not really focused on the 'Uncapped Creativity', as such.

I feel as if the left side is a bit too tightly framed, but other than that, it's wonderfully executed. :nod:

Hmmm... now that you mention it I think increasing the DOF on this shot might be beneficial to it.
I've been told a few times now that it's too cramped, I suppose I can see that. I'll add this to my list of shots to re-attempt, at some point. :)

I saw this photo and actually went "Ah!" just because I love it so much! Bokeh isn't really a unique thing when photographing, but I've never seen anyone incorporate it into their pictures like you do! Usually, it's merely a pretty background, but you make it seem like... I don't know! Tangible magic? :P

what an idea! I love it , love how the bokeh goes from sharp to kind of distressed ! only think I can think of is that on the jar , where theres a lot of color (near the opening) It kind of looks a bit noisy?... Maybe you should check that out ^^ but what a fantastic shot :D

Yay, thank you oh so very much for the kind words and critique! I tend to have a noise problem when shooting indoors, even though I keep my ISO all the way down... I should probably look into ways to cut back on noise...
anywho, thanks again! :love:

lightroom does a great job on noise reduction but photoshop works pretty great as well :D
best thing to do is shoot raw images and then pos process it in camera raw or lightroom , this way you can change everything in the picture without destroying the quality , and it removes noise so much better:D

np ;) lighroom is the best for raw I think , photoshop becomes more fine detail work after your photo has had its round in lighroom ^^
