Thanks. I appreciate that. I guess what contents us is better than what the judges think. Still need a lot of improvement though.

In order to get a shallow DOF shown in his close up photos, you need a better lens than your stock Rebel lens. If you're on a budget, try the Canon 50mm f/1.8 lens. You'll be able to achieve similar results.
