These are the trophies from the 4th of July 5K Race last year in our home town. (I simply used a narrow dof to get this effect - No DD) - Another view is in the comment section.

What a glorious photo op those 5k trophies were, Jeff! And you certainly made the most of it ~ your knowledge of dof gave the figures the effect of "literally" running! Outstanding work and MT entry!
Winner!

I so much enjoy your work, Jeff. You obviously know your camera very well. I dream of the day my Nikon D90 becomes "an extension of my arm" and not a challenge trying to express myself. I love my Canon pocket camera. Great quality for the ease of using it...then I let my DDR do my magic. How cool that you didn't even use PS!

Love all three images!
