Welcome to Ephotozine ١rhildur!


This is a very nice shot. The rabbit is gorgeous, - a type native to the arctic perhaps?

This is the Critique Gallery, or learning Zone, so we try to provide constructive feedback that you can use to improve your knowledge of photography, and also of some post processing techniques, based usually on Photoshop. If you use something else, let us know. Thanks also for uploading your original shot, - its helpful.

Shot settings: Youve shot with a wide open aperture, which is OK, but stopped down a little can be sharper; but you shutter speed is slow, unless you are using a tripod, which you didnt mention. As a rule, the minimum shutter speed for a hand-held shot is 1/(focal length * crop factor); so in your case here, its 1/(300 * 1.6) = 1/480th, - so the speed available thats higher is 1/500th. And this rule applies for people with steady hands too! So shooting a little too slow, - though the exposure is good, means the bunny is slightly soft (not sharp).

Subject and composition: Great subject; too central in the crop, - you have enough space to move the rabbit towards the left, leaving room in front, which makes a better composition.

White balance: Looks too cool. If you look at the snow in the original shot, below the rabbit, you notice it has a blue tone. So the image can look better with a warmer white balance. I will leave a link to a site that shows how to correct a colour cast like this.

Sahrpness: Can benefit with more sharpening; when you re size your image, then save it, open it, then check for sharpness, - apply as needed, save, and only then upload. This is becasue the re sizing process can cause loss of detail due to file compression.

Anyway, enough technical stuff. Its a nice shot, and Ive uploaded a mod, - scroll up to the modifications tab and click.

As a fan of Detective Erlunder in Arnaldur Indri­ason's novels, I am delighted to see someone from Iceland on here, so enjoy the site.

This is rather nice and an unusal rabbit to a UK viewer. It could do to be just a little sharper and you might manage that in software, but I'm otherwise quite happy with it.
