Today a Kestrel perched on a fence post. I am still playing with composition etc so your thoughts and feedback would be vey much appreciated.
Thanks for taking a look at this and passed images.
Happy new year
Happy New Year Dave
Butter wouldn't..........would it..... Lovely capture
Many congrats. on your GEA, David: I think your shot looks just fine as it is, but should you wish to try an alternative composition it might be worth looking at a square format ( you may have noticed I tend to use such a lot) and placing the bird and the post on the intersection of the left and middle thirds, thus leaving room for it to gaze into. Just a thought, but in truth, these birds need a lot of room in their natural environment and your shot as it stands tends to reflect that.
Super detailed capture, great colours and i like the comp too
For some reason, my comments have gone astray???????????????? Ah well!
excellent detail and colour. Great image.
A terrrific capture, what a majestic bird
Excellent images David V1 for me mate
Definitely V2 for me David I prefer that format- congrats on the GEA.
lovely shot I am not a fan of the square formats would take some of the left of the first and a tad off the right but comp is personnel I think but great kestrel
Composition is very much a personal thing and I accept that whilst the 3rds rule is good guidance it is wrong to think it must be followed slavishly. In this case I would not be too happy with the landscape format and I am not sure the square format suits either. I think I would have preferred a portrait format- long and narrow. This would have allowed you to give more emphasis to the bird and make a feature of the perch but at the same time would allow you to give credence to the3rds rule should you so desire.
I strongly emphasise that these are personal opinions and are in no way cricticism of this lovely shot. A cracker Dave.
I prefer V1. A lovely image...........Sandy
Excellent capture V2 for me great work well done.
all the best for the new year
