    Seriously, ONE dimensional??

    Here's the quote.
    "Can we put a drop shadow on the graphic of the book? It looks too 1-D."

    Amazing ability! She can perceive one dimensional objects!

    Just thought I'd share. Have a great day everyone!
    hahahahaha.........

    Tell her it is technically 2 dimensional (X, Y). If she wants Z they she have to pay for 3D.

    It sounds like maybe the subject of the photo wasn't isolated enough from the background and surroundings and so didn't pop out enough. Maybe try for a shallower depth of field using wider apertures so that the subject is in focus and nothing else is.

    The subject of bokeh comes up as well. You want the out of focus background to be nice and smooth as well so that it is pleasingly unobtrusive.

    Fast lenses do this more easily and FF does it better than DX which does it better than smaller systems.

    If you can't do this shot over, you can get some of the effect in Photoshop, etc with selective sharpening, contrast, lighting and such in different layers.
