Default Looking for an opinion

Which of these two do you like better? Or, neither for that matter.

I like the whole jellyfish, but to crop to 8x10 I lose a little of it's tale. I also like to see the detail of the body, but it bothers me that it's cut off.

I like the image of the whole jellyfish Patty! Very nice images...I am impressed by the sharpness, clarity and the lack of noise especially at ISO 1600! Where were these taken...I'd like to see more if you have any!

Thanks, jelpee. These were taken last January at the New England Aquarium in Boston. Taken with the K20D and the old kit lens. I did run them through Neat Image, although there wasn't much to get rid of.

I'll have to look through the photos and see. I took nearly 800 photos there and at the Museum of Science that day.

Patty, Beautiful jellyfish! Download FastStone Image Viewer and open the picture with it. You then go to the crop board and you can get a full 8x10 image.

If you want you can e-mail me the full file and I will make the 8x10 for you and e-mail it back. Too nice a picture to lose detail.

Default adding another pose

Here's another one that I've been playing with. It has more of the tail missing. But, the curve is nice in it.

Thanks, kazuya. I believe it is already right side up. (I'm assuming that's what you're saying. You think it's upside down.) I usually turn the camera so the shutter button is on top when I turn it. Although, they were going both up and down in the tank.

Lou - I'm reading through the software tutorial now. Back from getting myself wet at the beach.

Hmmm, maybe I should check them out hung upside down then. :-)

No, it's not for the monthly competition. They don't qualify as I'd taken them in January. But, it's one for my exhibit I'm hanging next weekend. The family's been going back and forth with opinions on that one so I figured I'd ask here.
