message this message is important Dear Izwar,
Thank for your latest submission to the UWP contest.

Izwar, this is a great photograph..I love it! Nice shallow depth of field, great diagonal composition, the exposure and lighting are good and the subject matter is well chosen with great colours. Well done!

My only criticism of this shot is that it would have been better if all parts of the rhinopores had been in focus. There are two ways this could have been achieved: 1. reducing your aperture by one stop and thereby slightly increasing depth of field to include both rhinopores (e.g. increasing your f-stop from (say) f5.6 to f8, or f11 to f16); or 2. putting both rhinopores at the same distance from the camera by choosing a more head-on angle. Using the second option you could achieve the same very narrow depth of field but have both rhinopores in focus.

Great shot Izwar, I look forward to seeing more of your work!

Regards,
Doug Anderson
