Nice picture, Caton. I wish the Mule on the right side of the picture was in it a bit more, but other than that I like it!

WOW, I love the color, it is so mystery. But it is a bit in center and too blank at the border. I think a tighter crop would make this one really pop.

It looks really great, but I think it would look even better with some sort of border around the edge.

Nice shot...has a look on it's face like you caught him/her doing something it wasn't supposed to be doing. Nice details too.

This is a cellphone pic, not great quality but I love the subject. The caption that goes with it....

Quite good, only thing that would make it better is if you had a better camera like you said! Really good composition though and interesting light with the sunset!


Here's one from a recent engagement photoshoot, I'll post more over in the Nikon thread:

Very nice engagement photo, sharp and crisp IQ, but my eyes keep getting drawn towards the distance, following the river towards the pink trees and the the building. I dunno, maybe if the picture was cropped a little on the right so there is a little more room on the left. I like how the ducks are in the photo as well, adds nice touch.... to bad they weren't swans! Now that's be something!

Awesome picture -- one of those pictures that is unique for its composition as well as its spur-of-the-moment subject(s). I personally think it would have made a slightly better photo to use a smaller aperture so that background weren't so blurred, but I know when shooting things that may only last a few seconds it's hard to remember

I would disagree, respectfully...just because it looks like the background could be distracting and you want the whole focus of the shot on the praying mantis. I feel that if the background doesn't add something to the subject of the photo, it's best to blur it.

Okay, maybe I should rephrase: I agree with that, obviously a fully focused background could be distracting. However, 2 this pop out at me, 1.) Even just the back of the wooden post the mantis is on is out of focus. And 2.) I just think that the background could have been a little less blurred -- because to me, a blur of splotches and colors in the background just seems unrealistic to me. Yeah, I guess that's just it, realism. But, to each his own. Either way, it's a great shot.

In this instance I'd have to agree with you. If the background were in focus the subject stands a great chance of getting lost.
