Ok Pixie

This is a "critique."

(nice picture BTW)

This image, if I took it, I would call a "Goosescape," meaning that it shows the wildlife, but not close enough to reveal those details that lead the viewer to remark "look at this, I didn't know they looked like that?"

So in this fine image, I would have tried (tried is the key word here) to put something in the BACK of the picture, so that it's naturally framed. This image sort of wonders off into space...

In other words, the background, which IS beautiful has nothing to hold the eye.

Your not the first to tell me that,lol. It is a very busy picture and the eye wanders a minute before you can figure out the main subject I know:sad:It was the second day I had my D70 out and I was having fun trying to figure it out,lol. Hopefullly I will naturally get better, especially with all the help of you guys in here. Very friendly site you got here, I like it. Again thanks for the comments,



Jules:-)







stupid spelling mistakes:blah:

There are MANY ways to fix the eye. Clever cropping can do it...

Although, some thought can be used when actually taking the image. Angle of appraoch to the subject...

Take a look at my post of the female Willet. There's NOTHING behind her, but it looks three dimensional!

Not the greatest of shots but it's another way to highlight the subject. In your case, it's actually a wildlife landscape, the Goose WORKS! But the background, which is so interesting, doesn't.
