Looks like a picture of a vehicle in the street. The subject rarely makes the image but rather the composition. I'm a professional motorsports photographer and the image of a 'stick' is far more pleasing than a stock image of a car you might like for reasons other than its value to the lens.
edit:// My apologies. I just saw the 'stick' comment and went off on one. I forgot the idea of the thread.
The image above. The gnome. He's a bit flat. There is little depth of field which means that at f2.8 you must have been some distance away. Which then begs the question why be so open and soft it at distance? You could sharpen it up at f8 and have the same image, if stabilised.
It's a pleasing image but nothing pops. Some bokeh would have been perfect to bring the subject out. As it is there is no subject.Edited by ZootCadillac - 2/6/12 at 10:52am
