ConanFuji: Did you kill it first?

OK. Here's how the snap was clicked. Honestly I never realised that the viewers might scrutinise my snap to such detail therefore I did not bother to mention all the details in the note. I had also used a Raynox DCR250 adapter with the macro lens. The lighting I had used two Nikon speedlights SB-R200. The subject was about 3 or 4 inches away from the DCR250. The subject was clicked in its natural environment and was alive (I never kill or hurt any creature). Here is another shot of the same subject. http://www.flickr.com/photos/sandyjpatil/7240228420/in/set-72157627509279538

RaZZ3R Death: The DOF is to shallow to be F22, more like F8 but how far where you that you used a 150mm on a 1.5 crop plus 3 extensions tube, that would have given you enough magnification to see the fly's brain :P

In reply to:

tarakanchik: I think once you get to 1:1 or closer, the DOF gets so shallow that you pretty much have to shoot at f/16 - f/22 to get any detail. Nice shot.

I was sure that this entry would make it at least in the first three, but I think the voters did not take a closer look at the photograph. Full marks from my side to this beautiful photograph :-)

Thanks SexyNEXy, honestly minimum post processing (brightness / contrast etc), just attached a DIY snout to SB-R200 flash, and illuminated the subject only.

On Ice candy man & the unfortunate child. in the The Unfortunate challenge (2 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jan2009: It's too bad that this shot did not make it in the top 10, I really thought this was a great entry to child labor. Great capture nevertheless. I think most voters did not take such a good look on this image. I do admit that the ice candy man steals the attention.

To be honest even I was little disappointed by the result (human nature). Then I saw your comment and I was so happy that at least some one liked and appreciated my work no matter it stood 17th in the challenge. Thanks a lot.
