took to day awwww babys 2 days ould. christine
A good attempt Christine.
But frankly, i took approx 5 minutes to locate what exactly came in the category of Pets and Captive animals. And lack of clear focus in a image is the major drawback. On seeing a picture, the viewers eyes should be able to automatically capture what the image consists of.
Here, when i saw the thumbnail, i thought of this is as a toy cart. On unique view, i thought of it as stuff toy box.
It was when ii noticed your tag of Pets and Captive animals i tried locating again, and then i found out that it really consists of 2 baby chickens ( and that too i'm not 100% sure ! ) So thats the major drawback.
Your idea was good and sweet but you failed to execute it perfectly. Heres what you could have done.
Firstly, you sshould have zoomed it to such a way that the two chicks would have been in the focus with or without the Panda. Inclusion of the
panda would have been upto you. ( Depends on how well you take a picture with zoom without messing up)
Secondly, that tail or whatever white object is there, is really disturbing the view. You could have easily fixed it i Post processing using any image editing app such as Gimp, Photoshop etc.
Thirdly, the image is in a desperate need of tighter crop. If you would have given the option of Modifications, i would have showed you what i meant but never mind, You should have cropped it from the back, left and a bit from the front. ( that front yellow part also takes the eye away from the subject )
Fourthly, The chicks are whitish, and capturing white objects is always tricky, as a bit of mistake can over enhance the image. As in your case. The light on the chicks and all the white portion on the image is too high..So a bit of reduced EV/ white balance/ addition of shadows in post processing would have done your work.
But, the biggest mistake.. such an ISO!! 1600! no wonder the image is so poorly focused and full of noise..
Most of us capture perfectly in ISO 100.. For this mistake only, your subject is so poorly focused. Infact not focused at all!
You can ignore my fourth point, as i didnt notice the ISO before, and at this much ISO, there is no way reduction of EV, white balance etc would have improved your image.
Its a fairly ordinary. And when i saw your previous pictures, i really am surprised with this image.
You could do better..
Thats telling you
Well... It's Silly Sunday anyway!
Correct me if I am wrong here....BUT is this not baby birds that have been rescued?
Why would any person want to put a camera up any closer and upset these chicks??
And all in the name of photography...how silly, Christine I am proud of you for standing
Back and simply taking the photo, and not doing all of the above suggestions ....is this where you volunteer ?
Ever heard a term named,, umm.. zoom?
Well i like the shot Christine, don't know what his problem is above or has he wrote an essay.
i think its great to
thank you. christine
Well the above critique is quite silly in as much..
ISO has naught to do with focusing..
in a dark place with 100 ISO? Yeah,right
Focus is actually ok, They are fluffy and not blurry and that 's why they are aaaawh
but he is right about one point... it does need a crop!
