  1. I’m not sure what to make of this one. I like the object (berry of some sort?), and I like the lighting on it. But I find that the background fabric clashes with the object. Maybe if this were cropped a little closer and the green of the cloth were desaturated a bit?

    Also, I can’t tell if the object is slightly out of focus or if that’s the actual texture of it. The fact that the foreground of the fabric is very rough and in focus makes the object look out of focus. If the fabric were de-emphasized in some way, it might all come together for me.

    1. Hi Ben,
      This is a photo of an Oak Gall, and the focus is spot on. It does give an illusion of being out of focus.

      1. Thanks for the info. The more I looked at it, the more I realized my initial doubt was unfounded. Very
        interesting! It makes me want to see more of a closeup of the surface. This 600 px limit is a killer!
