I know the fence might be considered disturbing by many, but it makes me wonder - is there any fence that is not actually disturbing? (I went for keeping it and called it a self-portrait, I would greatly appreciate any comments and critique.) Thank you for viewing.

(PS: I know that according to the rules I should have left more space to the right, since that's where the animal seems to be looking, but I tried a crop that would give the feeling of trying to step away and head for disappearing out of the frame.)

I wonder if you have seen rontear's latest upload? Pictures of caged animals are always disturbing, there as here I see a very determined individual determined to stay on top of the situation. I suspect that the mesh is for our protection.
The close crop on the right adds to the cooped-up feel. With more space it would no doubt satisfy a camera club judge better, but it wouldn't have the same power.

Thank you very much for the comment, Moira... I hadn't seen rontear's upload, thanks for sharing that... And thank you for the underlying encouragement regarding the crop choice Smile

if teh vulture wants his picture taken...who are we to argue!!! Wink...fence in/fence out? if it's there shoot it...often you can set the aperture to fog it out anyway.
