    I like your escalator shot... nice symmetry to the entire composition. But is it me or is it ever-so-slightly out of focus, possibly camera-shake? Was this a handheld shot?

    On your specs_macro shot, I think a smaller aperture (larger f/stop number) would be better suited for this kind of shots. Otherwise, you'll only get a very narrow depth-of-field... unless that was what you were trying to achieve in the first place. After all, the variations in the pasta's orientation and the light play on the three different colours seems to be the main goal of the picture.

    all hand held shots, because i haven't got my tripod yet.. i think it must be camera shake.. the others 20+ pics (that i didnt upload) are blurish.. hehe...

    Your composition is not bad, you have already passed a major obstacle in good picture taking! Depth of field could be better and the pics could be sharper, but it is quite hard to take subjects up close without camera shake and without using a tripod. I like your shots though, and as a fellow mechanical camera user, know how so much depends on the user. Keep it up!
