    Thanks everyone for your comments and votes!

I shot this in aperture priority using different f stop values to vary the DOF and this was my favorite of the bunch. This was shot using the Raynox DCR-150 lens to get the effect like this. The background picture is a wedding shot of yours truly and my wife. Lighting was natural- no flash used, but maybe a controlled/diffused light would have been better?

Next time I gotta choose my props more carefully.... :)

    My n 1!!! a very nice wedding photo, nice colors and sharpness of the rings.
It's funny that the man and woman are completely out of phocus so this photo it can be recycled for any couple that wants one of that! LOL

    Nice shot, I like the composition, but may be an excessive illumination from the center gives a lot of reflections, I can suggest some kind of diffusion in the camera flash, and another bouncing ligth to increase the details from the rings.

    Nice take. Good comp, I may have taken a bit more off the left side. The brillo/cleaning pad is not that attractive (the yellow thingie)...I think a darker color (black or very dark blue) would add some 'Pop' to the foreground subject. Nice focus.

    absolutely brilliant!!!! I love this shot

    Definitely fits the theme. In my first draft of favorites. The rings seem huge! My guess is this was taken in front of a wedding photo. I'm bothered by the cushion. The yellow is awfully big and bright, and the pink seems like a blood stain -- probably not the message you were intending! ;-)

    Very tasteful, very good. Nicely composed. Sharp where it should be and OOF in the right place. Thanks for sharing.

    Great sharpness in the foreground but do you think it would have been enhanced with a little less bokeh on the bridal couple. Still makes my TT.

    Good definition on the rings, lovely picture. The yellow pillow is for me to strong. The cam a little bit up with a little tilt down maybe? In my TT though.

    Now that I go back and look at my entry again- I am starting to regret my choice of prop for the rings... This is a small doll pillow that I grabbed to use, but maybe should have used something different- something not as bright. On the camera LCD and computer it looked good, but I agree it does distract too much.

    Pretty nice. The pillow's color and texture is most unfortunate.

    Beautiful composition and idea. There are other wedding ringsm but with the couple behind this one stands out.

    Very nicely prepared picture, and also very much traditional.

    Very nice shot although, to me, the color/texture of the pillow doesn't really match the scene, and is a bit distracting.
