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!

Here's one of mine It's a coco worm.

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....



You know it's going to be a good day when you're driving down the road in the early morning hours, look out your window and see this....

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.
