    Hey guys,
    This guy seemed to be a strange/eccentric individual..he didn't even know there was a parade and when I told him there was one..he decided to sit down in the bleachers and enjoy the whole parade. Well, here it is for C&C.

    Thank you!!

    2. Is this a better crop? I tried to crop more, but I couldn't.

    Great capture! Looks very professional. I think it would look good in National Geographic ;) I can't decide whether I prefer the cropped or original version.

    I like the 1st one better too. I don't like seeing people so close to the foreground with their heads cut off if it can be avoided.

    This is sooooo sharp.
    I prefer the uncropped version to the crop. Some more context - and un-beheaded persons in the background - sometimes do more good than bad ;).

    I like the first version. Really awesome shot. The details in his face are so sharp. Was it awkward with him looking right at you, or did you ask to take the shot first?
