That is a tricky one for me Tim. I kind of want more to lead me to the eyes in this one, like longer front legs? The impact with one eye is strong but just not dynamic with both eyes back to me if that makes sense? I am being a bit distracted by the two dark backs of the ears in the BG cat. I am sure cropped tight on the left for a reason, just a little too tight for my taste perhaps.
On a positive note, from nose tip to eyes the sharpness is excellent as is...Show more →
I have put a lot of thought into your comment Karl. Some of mine... yes there are some reasons I didn't put more room on the left of the shot and I do agree that it is tight there. That's one of the problems with packs of animals, sometimes you have to go too tight in order to not cut someone's head in half. Also the big brown thing is a cape buffalo that they are feeding on, if I went wider I would have included a large chunk of gore that I didn't want. So in order for that I cut it tight and not get gore or the neighbor's head I cut off its legs. I do agree that the legs would have added a nice line to follow up to the subjects face, just couldn't do it. So with all that in mind I tried to lessen all of the image except the face of the subject hoping that in itself would be strong enough to focus the viewer's eye. Not making excuses, your points are well taken and I do agree with them.
Then again if the strong face isn't going to get your focus I don't know how blurry ears did
Thanks for the push and the thoughts Karl, I always do appreciate them
