    your focus is off, as in i dunno what is the main subject of this picture.

    You need to isolate your distraction and bring out the subject.

    to TS: a macro lens would have done a better job at isolating your subject of interest.. and i agree with previous comments that it colour temp a little too cool.

    if a person shoot for soo kee then ppl say the pics suxs, the photographer come out say i use kit lens nia... how u feel?

    same thing, if u post a shot, ppl look at the pics and comment, not cos its taken by whichever lens, but by how it is delivered.

    the delivery in this case is self explanatory... but dun take offense... i speak the truth.

    maybe changing the white balance can change temperature of picture?

    u pass me the rings, i shoot for u?

    per shot S$300.00 offer price. (u can go check market rate.)

    anyway, i find that all clustered together, esp i find the ribbon going thru the ring abit 'tin teh'. still have alot... i think i can write about 2 page long... then i reckon someone going to complain... hehe...

    its easier if i show u how to shoot.

    ..., lighting also need serious work on.

    try to explore more dynamic angles.
    lighting is also flat.
    more isolation of the subject will be nice.
    seems a bit soft also.
    try to use a lower iso and and tripod for still life.

    keep shooting k!

    Thank you for sharing this photo. The photo is very sharp. Can Kit lens achieve this level of sharpness?

    Used a 50mm 1.4 prime for the previous shot. Just make sure you got your steady hands on your cam and shoot.

    Another shot to share when i tried opening up the aperture.

    depends how you use it. anyway i dun own a kit lens. but if u stop it down, it will be sharper. but u have to use correct technique to isolate the background & emphasize your subject.

    i suggest a tripod as well. and probably a few flashes to start with. else, photoshop is a good fren to know.

    your photo was taken as macro shot if u use an extension tube right? n the surrounding light must be ample to acheive correct exposure even without flash?
