WA #395 Surrender

The young son always works to earn the respect of his father.
One day his training and quick thinking will bring him to the brink of victory.
There is only one dignified response....surrender.

The King is dead, long live the king!

Comments are always appreciated.

Note: The "cat" picture as been replaced with this new idea

I like the concept, though the crop seems a bit heavy. There are three graphic planes here: white, tan and black, and all seem to be competing for attention, though the eye, which is the relief and focal point, seems trapped.

I do like the weighted bottom, but the eye might benefit from an off-center positioning (flank right should do).

Love the colours of this cat. Cats don't start moving around here till afternoon.
Good connection to the theme.

Cool shot. I'm a fan of dramatic and unusual cropping. It can make a common object or subject more intriguing as you figure out the shapes and color, seeing the object in a different way. In this case the tight crop serves to keep the eye very visible at 640 pixels. It's truly a matter of taste; go with your gut. :-)

Thanks for the comments on the cat picture!

I had another idea that I was working on, and in the end I like it better. I have replaced the previous shot.

This is much better than the previous one. You thought long and hard before pressing the shutter button, and it shows. It's easily my favorite thus far.

Happy shooting,
Yakim.
