I love your composition on this one! : )
Ohhh, nice one. I love how you get such closeups.
I hate to have to dissagree with everyone, but I think the image is BLURY!!! I'm sorry, but I guess I'm the only one that sees it, but it doesn't look at all in focus.
After looking at the exif info, I see that the shutter speed might have been a bit slower than it should have been. Your focal length was 180mm but your shutter speed was 1/50th of a second. As a general rule of thumb, you want to keep your shutter speed number to either match (or be higher than) your focal length number. So, if your focal length was 180mm, your shutter speed should have been at least 1/180th of a second.
It does look like there is a fair bit of camera shake going on there to me too, and possibly a stop under exposed and pulled?. but the subject is very cute and the composition is great.
Thanks for the lesson in photography.
First, the exif data is wrong. Why? I was using a 2x converter which screws up the exif data along with other things such as only allowing manual focus - which is probably a good thing.
It would have been nice to shoot this at 1/500th instead of 1/50th (assuming it was 1/50th, the focal was 300 mm) except for a few considerations: the speed of the lens (5.6 - double that with the converter), the fact that there wasn't any sun, the fact that I only shoot at ISO 200.
So this is a good rule of thumb for beginners, but in real life the situation can be very different. You will learn that with experience.
Is the photo blurred - yes..only part is in focus due to the fact that it was handheld at a slow shutter speed with limited depth of field on an overcast day.
Is the fox still cute? I think so.
My previous post was just a typical critique, I wasn't trying to insinuate that you needed a lesson in photography. May I inquire as to why you only shoot at an ISO of 200?
