My Little Treasure

By drizzle
This is a squirrel that i happened to stumble across. I think that the quality of this picture is very good, but I don't like that this little guy is centered. He bent down just before I took the shot, so he was meant to be more to the left... but oh well, I think it's a decent shot anyway. I'm always open to critique!

A lovely capture, certainly one to be proud of.

Regards Nathan

You have an option with composition. You can either capture the main subject and worry about placement later (using a computer programme) by cropping the final image. Or you can partly press the shutter (making sure the subject is sharp), then slightly move the camera to get placement and then finish pressing the shutter. With practise this can be done quite quickly, before your subject wanders (or with squirrels, dashes) off! Smile

It's a good capture, just a little soft (did you remember to sharpen after re-sizing for upload?) Smile

I haven't sharpened it, but I could go back and do that. And that is an interesting way to do that... I'll have to experiment with it! Thank you!

Good image. There's a slight blueish cast which you can easily get rird of. Smile
