Thanks, it is what I do for a living so I hope I'm halfway adept. The middle shot was done handheld, propped on my elbow. The depth of field isn't enough to keep the wheel crisp. I'll do it again with a tripod and see how sharp I can get it. I had a good laugh when I saw what was done in the GS brochure with a similar shot. The wheel is sharp, the mountain in the axle hole is sharp, but the background between the spokes is out of focus so you know they had to put the image of the mountain in. Photoshop can do most of what the mind can envision but the mind needs to pay attention to details.
