    Bro,

    This forms the chinese character YI. One.

    Just 2 cents worth, rotating the picture to portriat 90 degrees clockwise might protray the alphabet 1 and also makes it interesting...dont know how good it will be though.

    Regards,
    tltan

    haha you got it.

    i find that it looks more like the chinese character than the roman number.

    sorry i did not look in here for awhile

    when shooting at 1:1 magnification your DOF is really razor thin
    so by just adjusting the plane of focus to not be parallel to the subject

    1:1 as in scale

    context - during the old film days
    the resulting image on the negative/slides is the same size as the subject

    for example: if you take a photo of a ruler's scale and then measure the resulting image on the film, 1cm scale on the ruler would be 1cm in lenght on the film.

    I hope i managed to explain it well.

    Love the colours and the composition. The DOF is so shallow though that it's distracting.

    thanks for noticing

    Razor thin DOF is an aquired taste,
    works for some, while distracting for others
    I am always trying to refine it.

    for me i do not like it to be too perfect
