Wow Julia, this is a good shot with the mussells all lined up there. It is hard to get them all sharp when all together like this. But I've been told to use a higher F-stop number, but that usually means a tripod.
It is quite amazing how they grow all squashed up like this. Well presented and I think you've done a good job, well done.

Deserves a critique for the unusual factor. A common sight on UK coastlines but a lot of members probably haven't seen one. It's difficult to say whether a wider DOF would have improved the shot or not. I like this one anyway.

I think the shallow DOF works perfectly in this case! I would even say a wider DOF would have ruined this picture. The effect you created is very nice and I like the compoistion a lot. Exposure is spot on. Well done & TFS!

I like this shot alot. Very artistic effect for me with the fame filled with the mussels. I like the shallower DOF. Great lighting on this.
I think this is a great shot. Your notes on this subject are great!

Really, really good picture Julia! Arty! With great composition and DOF. Full of geometric textures. Interesting. And with great note. I like it very much!

A very artistic shot.
I love the shiny black surfaces of the mussels and the shapes.
I think it looks great with the tight crop/framing.
Your DOF works well.

There's no doubt the shallow DOF really makes this picture interesting and unusual. Its a great shot Julia and shows creative thinking. Very well done.

Hi Julia, I missed this. I like this alot. I used to ride down to the fishmongers as a kid - I had a real thing about looking at fish and this brings back nice memories.
Hi Julia, I like this shot, it is almost abstract with all the mussels of similar hue and shape, packed so closely together. Your lighting picks out all the edges and so makes the shapes really stand out. Very nicely done :)

A very interesting subject, I dont remember to have seen it before in TN. The region where I live was the biggest world mussel producer for decades, with a great quality and size. Now chinese are the biggest.
Nice foto, great use of DOF to create a interesting composition, quite difficult with this subject. Thanks.
