Your main problem is the source for the fly is the photo with shallow DOF but the frog's one is not. Imagine that if you place anything behind the fly, it will become blurred (so your image is wrong in term of DOF, Depth of Field). You can fix that by blurring all the area behind the fly or re-create the blurring part of the fly (mush tougher). However, the idea is very good

Langstrum is right about the source and DOF, however IMO I would perceive the blur of the fly (legs and wings) to be motion blur. The fly would be the only thing moving rapidly at that point, so although closer would be the most blurred.....Great entry

author says:

thanks for the comments!!! ;] Geexman is correct that the legs and wings of the fly are from motion blur, as you can see in the source for the image... I do understand what you are saying about the DOF but i think that i have created the depth needed with the small amount of blur i have added to the frog and tongue already... they would be relatively close as a frog's tongue would be no more than a few inches in length. I appreciate your time viewing my image!!

I see what Langstrum is saying, but I can forgive any problems with the DOF. The picture is meant to look cartoony and caricature-like from the start so I don't think the DOF is too much of a problem. IMO, of course. Very creative and very well executed. Good luck, author.

I like this one! It looks like the fly was smashed against a piece of glass. I especially like the spit/guts spraying... Nice idea, and nice job on it. Maaaaybe you could add a small shadow (burn) between the two tongue pieces, to create a shadow above the top one. Just a thought. Great work and good luck!

lol this is great . Looks like the frog is enjoying the splat.

avatar PixelWhisperer

nice image ... imo ithink DOF is OK because if the eye OR lens is focused on the frog, then what is behind AND in front will be out of focus, in re-creating a photo-realistic image - well done ...it's all down to ISO, shutter speed, etc.

I like this one, I think it's funny, and well done. This would not have came to mind for highspeed motion, so this is very clever hehe.

Gratz!! I'm sure that frog is happy. I doubt the same could be said for the fly.
