The Marble by Kaz-D The Marble by Kaz-D
Back with the marble! I love this thing. It was so green outside this morning that I had to take a shot. I know it's similar to one a while ago but gah so vibrant!

The green backdrop is lovely. I liked that you used a shallow DOF to highlight the marble in the foreground. I also like the framing/crop choice. It follows the rule of 3rds and my eyes are not scrambling all over the image. I like that the focus is on the marble itself so you can see the inverted reflection. Only draw back to focusing on the marble is you have a bit of focus shift on the wire itself. It's slight blur is a tiny bit distracting. I probably would have sharpened it a bit in post personally. :)
One other comment is it's a bit underexposed in the foreground. You couldn't have used fill light because of flash back but a little bit of dodge in post or level adjustments on the red channel could pop that marble out some more.
What do you think?

Nice depth of field. Love the composition of this. Pretty metallic glint on the spiral and I love the upside down clear view of the background. Very fun!

within a bright sphere
a complete world seems contained,
just for a moment.

This might be a soothsayer's
crystal ball, where trapped light writhes.

This reminds me of those bits of amber resin that have things preserved in them. :meow: I love the warm, deep colors you captured here.
