    The photos were taken awhile back during a school's Sports Day

    1) Alone..


    2) O&O


    3) Golden 'Stone'

    Your shots not bad actually, all shots are pretty well exposed and the colors are correct too. Not so much as a comment, but more of a personal preference if I am shooting these things....

    Alone. include more shadows...Shadow is interesting, floor is boring...

    O&O. do you have wider angle lens, say 16mm? wider angle will create a more interesting shot for this composition.

    Golden Stone. try focus on the second trophy, makes the overall shot more "depth".

    Do u mean show more shadow.. compose it such that the object is at the right hand side?
    I usually go by "Less is More"

    This one I'm confused.. how do i focus on the 2nd trophy.. it's hidden.. or do u mean.. change angle altogether?

    I do not have any pics with me to show. I borrow someone else's pics to illustrate what I mean, I hope DarkForce will not mind :

    Understood... But I guess it would difficult in my case cos the trophies were stacked quite closely to each other.. plus.. I had "ulterior motive" to shoot my reflection..

    Hmm, just my 2 cents.
    1) Alone. The composition is nice. However, if you could walk more towards your left and show the full shadow of the errr... object (), it will be perfect.
    2) O&O. Hmm, i not sure where the focus is... so, maybe its because i cannot get the feel?
    3) Golden 'Stone'. Nice composition. I personally also like to take photos in such arrangement. But i focus on the second or third object... which is why it is never posted cos i like to take things right from the start. Most ppl got the 2nd or 3rd object in the row because they use center focusing. For my case, i forgot to adjust the AF sensor position...
    Anyway, nice shot. Just that maybe you wanna adjust the tilt?

    Overall, nice series...Reminds me of my school days...Never got a trophy anyway. Haha.

    Dear jiven,

    Since the trophies were stacked quite closely , I might considerate on the row of trophies hander to create the DOF effect.

    * the above statement is only base on my personal preference.
