lovely intimate nature shot. Have you seen Eliot Porter's work? He pioneered this genre about 60-70 years ago.

50mm on apsc is a bit tight. i think a 40mm - 60mm equivalent in full frame terms is the limit. i do have a short telephoto challenge coming up for that though - 75-135mm in FF terms. I'd love to see your shot in that challenge!

Five Piece: Superb shot(s)! Can you tell us a bit about your processing? Thanks, and congratulations!

hi
thank you very much for looking at my photo. i didn't do too much post-processing. I took the shot on a staged area with black velvet backdrop and a lamp through a diffuser. This eliminated harsh shadows and large differences in gradation of black. I shot in raw
in lightroom, i increased the black point to drop what remained of the shadow detail into black, and then increased contrast, added sharpening. that's pretty much about it.

ConanFuji: It looked like you're posing the camera on top of an iPad.
Turns out to be a print!
Congratulations.
