    Glad you got the shot!

    Another way to get a similar shot of a different subject:

    In the past, I have done table top still lifes with oversized props to mionimize the DOF issues. In one series, I used a pulpit sized Bible. In another series I used huge sea shells. The DOF problems are still there, but because the size of the subject prop is larger, the camera may be further away and still fill the frame.

    This image of cut stones are acrually glass decorater items; each is palm sized . . .maybe 3" across.

    There are only three types of mounting flanges; too big, too small and wrong thread!
