Fuji S6000fd, ISO 400, 1/300s, 28mm, shot RAW w/post-processing and NoiseWare CE. I like the size of the ducks in relation to the rest of the pond, but should I crop of the bottom 1/8th or so of the photo?

nice family shot you got there. i understand your wanting to preserve the size relationship, but i do think this pic could benefit from a crop. there is alot of glare at the bottom of the pic that is a bit distracting. i prefer to keep the calm ripples at the top which gives a sense of quietness of the pond.

I think the reflections at the top add to the shot :-)

Hung, thanks for the response - you've stated pretty much what I was thinking, that the bright glare at the bottom drew the eye away from the subject.

BIll, thanks for looking, and I agree with you. The reflections are a big reason why I like this photo as much as I do.

I agree with everything that's been said so far, but I wouldn't want to see too heavy of a crop. Particularly, I think you need to preserve as much of the spreading wake as possible. It gives the scene movement in the midst of the placidity of the lake.

It's a nice shot.
