Actually, even f/22 will create a limited depth of field when you have a 100mm macro lens with such a short minimal focusing distance as close as you possibly can get. Keep in mind, this is a non-cropped shot and these are the size of Nestle's Chocolate Chips! :) I had to actually go back and look at the original RAW image myself to make sure I hadn't Photoshopped it in that manner, but - frankly - I'm not really into the whole select/lens blur thing; I'd rather just shoot the thing right the first time. :)

I can't put my finger on it, but there is something about this piece that I so very love. It's simple, but has an impact! Phenomenal job!!!

Why thank you! Sometimes I have to force myself to make a piece, this piece just called out to me. :) We had separated the red and green into separate bowls, I had missed one (not visible) and it made me realize that it would make a fun "all but one" shot for my Flickr account. :)

Oh you totally can't! Just so you know, these aren't Hershey's Kisses, but white-chocolate Nestle's chips! Teeny, eh? :)

Nice macro work! :)
My one comment is that the green... Candy... In the foreground looks a little strange tipped up like that--I'm not sure, though. Do you see it, or is it just me? :?
Anyway, good work, as always!

Thank you! Yeah, I can see it, I think...is it the two on the lower-right of the image?

I meant the one in the foreground, on the left. I'm not sure I see it anymore, though :/
