(Day 238) - Put in All Your Chips

I'm taking all my photos from a 'top-down' perspective this month. This one was tough because I wanted a sense of height for the stack of potato chips (or crisps as they are called in England) but it kept looking so flat. I adjusted the aperture to give myself a shallow depth of field and it helped. At least I hope you can see the depth in this shot. I did my best. :)
Mmmm, sour cream and onion.

@amandal - Haha, I was wondering if someone would catch the flavor! Good job Amanda. ;)

Lovely, tasty capture.
October 10th, 2015  
I'd say you did just fine!

@cjphoto I know my chips. Great pun, too!
October 10th, 2015  
It looks like a very tall stack; great job!
October 10th, 2015  
I really like this and can get a sense of depth and height! Nicely composed!
October 10th, 2015  
Creative shot. Great dof!

DoF works perfectly! That's quite a stack...could topple at any moment.
October 11th, 2015  
I think it was brilliant to adjust the DOF! You have achieved exactly what you wanted to ! well done, Chris!
October 11th, 2015  
I can see the depth. You've got quite a stack of chips there!
October 11th, 2015  
Great job!
October 11th, 2015  
It works, the dof did just what you wanted it to do.
October 11th, 2015  
Hmm, look like Pringles? You definitely achieved the height thing.
October 11th, 2015  
Yes, the dof works very well. I think you'd best eat them before the tower falls :-)
October 11th, 2015  
Makes me want to reach thru the screen and eat them!
October 11th, 2015  
Great dof and well done. I love those crisps.
October 11th, 2015  
I tend to go all-in when having chips too lol
October 11th, 2015  
Great composition.
October 11th, 2015  
I think it worked. love the soft colors too, o not what I usually associated with chips.
October 11th, 2015  
You definitely did capture the depth Chris, well done. Love that title too!!!
October 11th, 2015  
Mouth watering shot!

Thanks everybody for your thoughts on this photo! Happy to know it was an effective composition! :)

very creative and cool ... great!
October 11th, 2015  
That stack is too dangerous. I think you need to eat a few for safety precautions. Good shot!
October 12th, 2015  
@lynnz - Thank you very much Lynn! And I appreciate all your recent comments too!

@olivetreeann - Haha no worries, the tower shrunk considerably after this shot! ;)
October 12th, 2015  
Ya done good!
October 12th, 2015
