Default Too much zoom?

Here's another photo of mine. Feel free to dissect it. Did I zoom in too much?

Yes too much. Also most of the image is out of focus. Ask yourself what your objective was. Did you accomplish it? Basically you are asking if we like it. For me, no.

I was trying to capture a close up of the his face, but I think I failed at the task. I was sort of experimenting. =)

well you suspected that you had to much zoom, so it was a good leaning exercise.

This is one of those almost photos. Its almost in focus, its almost composed right, its almost, its almost,etc. If you are going for a profile it should be very straight on. You are shooting up slightly. Why lying down? Your pillow is distracting. So its not a matter of zoomed too close. Its just not composed or in focus properly.
