We’re starting the garden back up, and the seedlings were just transplanted to bigger pots. Here’s their first baby picture.

    ahhhhhhhh, they’re so cute…. not as big as our seedlings, but cute. Not as cute as our baby chicks, but cute.
    Definitely cuter than the garden worms we just got……….

    Congratulations on getting started again and I sincerely wish the best. I just wanted to say something on the technical front. I think there might be some mishap with the depth of field in this pic. To me its not vivid. Perhaps it could be the angle problem. I think it would be great if you have deeper field for this pic? What do you think james?

    @Andrei – it’s a jalapeño plant.

    @Mark – I was using one of my close up filters, which always shrinks the depth some. For that lens, the aperture wasn’t fully open, but still, 3.5 is pretty large, so that contributed, too. The light wasn’t that great when I took the shot… at f/3.5 and ISO 800, you would expect a shutter speed much faster than 1/50th of a second, but the room was in shadows. Long story short, to make the field deeper, I would have needed to remove the close up filter, stepped back a step, cropped the image a bit, and then either add a flash or increase the ISO while I closed the aperture.

    I think that’s right. What do you think?

    from my completely unbiased and unprofessional opinion (lol) – I really like the one being in focus and the others not, kind of a bokeh effect, and just how I feel about jalapenos on most days… :) )

  6. I may not an artist like you do, i had no skills on it, but i appreciate paintings coz it tells about photographers’ look with it’s angle. I like the way you shoot that seedlings, it’s more specific. I’d like to see it more when it starts to bloom. I wondered what plants is that?

  7. James says:

    Still a jalapeño. There will be more photos as they grow…

    This is a great picture- my first reaction was actually, “aww, they’re so cute!” Haha. I wish your garden well. It looks like you’re off to a beautiful start!
