    Look at this thing, Anax imperator, what a name too.



    1/1000 sec at f/8.0, ISO 800, 400mm

    Critique welcome, I still don't know if I am cropping in a pleasing way.

    ITs a little bit off centre, but I dont know jack about photography so dont take too much notice of what I say.

      The off centreness is deliberate because I was going for something wallpaper friendly and I was trying to place it on the right third, it was also a tricky crop. Here's the original:

        I like that its off centre, if to be picky I would bring in the right hand side a little so the blurred bit of grass is coming from the corner. the 1cm gap just looks like empty space to me.
        Again this is just my feelings of it.

        Cracking photo again though

            Oh yeah I see what you're saying, I'll give it another go later and see what I can do.

                No I don't use it, I think I tried to sign up a while back but it was forcing me to create a Yahoo account which I didn't much want. What are the advantages of using it?

                  None really, just I like to use it myself.
                  You can just follow people and see their updates and also tells you the info image, like camera settings and lens info and stuff.

                    I'll give it another look sometime, I see a lot of people using Instagram but it doesn't really work with my photos too well. Not to mention getting photos into it from your PC is a pain.

                    Anyway, new crop, thoughts?



                    Feel free to crop my original if you want

                      I like it mate, also when you zoom in on it, its proper sharp with my dodgy eyes.
