    e500e, I appreciate your idea with this pic. Have a couple of comments though....

    1. The main focal seems to be that drop of latex which is about to fall. Unfortunately, it looks out-of-focus, thus reducing the punch of the pic.

    2. I would sacrifice DOF for a higher shutter speed to freeze the action. Anyway, a shallow DOF should accentuate the subject better. Perhaps F4 @ 1/125?

    3. The interior of the cup is kinda distracting. Under permissable conditions, I would do a tighter crop when taking the shot... just feature the brink of the cup and not showing its content.

    Btw, I afraid you might have a speck of dust on your ccd... 4 o'clock from the drop of latex.

    Works as a documentary picture. Did you shoot in any other angles?

    as a picture in a textbook its ok, but as a picture for picture sake, it surely don't work. for what is so captivating and view-worthy in the pic? In fact the patterns on the tree trunk can be more pic-worthy.
