Maybe but compared to how sharp and clear all the other letters and words are on the cpu it makes them look blurry to me anyways lol.

Thanks for the comments guys. It's a little of each—the way the CPU is printed as well as lighting and focus. Just getting the lighting right to bring out all details on the IHS without adversely affecting lighting in the rest of the shot was tricky. I expected that going into it so took multiple shots at f/2.8 with progressive manual focus and a few different exposures, with later focus stacking/composite planned. However when I got the photos to my computer, some were blemished; must have picked up a speck of dust after the first couple of shots. I would redo them but I was getting the CPU for someone else and it's no longer in my possession. So what was intended to be just one shot in a composite ended up being the whole thing. I too would like the characters to appear sharper and more even.

It was sort of experimental anyway; combining the Apple-esque style with the AMD CPU, smooth backdrop/base with rough subject, was a subtle attempt at irony and contradiction.

Not macro.

DJ4g63t is right; it's a macro photo.

POTN begs to differ.

Macro = high magnification and often 1:1 representation of a subject.

Close-up = framing so the subject fills up the frame.

Two different things.

Edit to reply to your edit : "high magnification" and "1:1 representation of a subject" refer to the same thing. 1:1 or greater representation is the classical definition of macro photography, and this certainly fits the bill. Side note: in the film days the 1:1 representation referred to negatives but in the digital photography era it more commonly refers to final photo size. I would not consider subject filling the frame to be a necessary part of the definition of macro. Personally, I couldn't care less whether or not it's labeled a "macro" photo or not, but I think it is technically one, by the most universal definition of the term.

That said, I'm a beginner to photography and could be wrong about all this.

Wow I didn't think this photo would stir up this much conflict lol. In all honesty I never knew there was a difference between "close up" and "macro" so call it what you want biggrin.gif I'm a photography noob anyways

Now back to the pics

7/10, Not a horrible photo but nothing stands out about it. All the colors are similar and the shadow is distracting.

7/10—it's interesting, has character. I'd like to see more of its surroundings to anchor the meter's tilt, since the uneven bricks don't give a great indication of levelness.

Speaking of macro, an old one....

7/10

Interesting. What lens? Bit to much soft focus, would have been nice to see the entire head in focus?

No editing. Straight off the 7D, re-size, post...
