Dustin,

OK... Why the strange crops on the duck pictures?

This one for sure needs the left cropped a tad. I think you could have crop out
theduck on the right with no harm to the composition. The shape is a give away you were getting rid of something... No?

dale

PS: you know on the other one you cut three ducks in half. The environmentalist are gonna be mad. SAVE THE DUCKS ! SAVE THE DUCKS !

hey dale,

i cloned out the duck's behind on the left.. i did try cropping off the duck on the right, but then the center of attention duck was too tightly placed agains the right hand side, didn't balance well..

the reason for the odd aspect ratios was not really to cut anything out really.. it was just ice and water deadspace.. it was more to bring them closer to a pano format to increase the emphasis on the subjects..

i didn't mind cutting a few ducks in half as they were out of focus and not really stars of the show, so i didnt feel like it really made it awkward at all.. plus there was just no way to crop it without sawin a few ducks in half.. hehe

thanks dale,
dustin

It's so gruesome... But a photog gotta do what he's gotta do.

PS: They do give the pano feel. Nice pictures.

i agree that a little crop from the left would be good, otherwise a nice shot. as far as cutting ducks in half....it may be cruel but roast 'em up and serve on a bed of lentils with a nice red wine- dinner

you all don't like my deadspace on the left.. i think it aids the composition by keeping the star (duck) off-center.. if i cropped more from the left i would have to crop from the right to keep him off-center and i think that would be too tight???

thanks for the comments everyone!

He he he, a lot has been said. I like the angle, I can see that you almost lay on the ground to shot this one.
