nice capture of most of the bug, would like to have seen the whole thing. Seems a little too far to the right (thirds rule?)
i love it. i think its an awesome capture
**** the thirds rule.
Huh? :scratch: Perhaps you should refrain from posting in the critique section, if you really are just looking for an attaboy. Rule of thirds or not, the butterfly is cut out of the frame, and the poster above would like to have seen it, and simply commented.
Cool pic. Does it for me.
the wing... it can be said that it draws attention to the butterfly
The ol' butterfly there was stuck in a window, so I couldn't have shown the whole thing. But seriously, **** the thirds rule.
But sreiously,take terri's advice.
Lol, you said what I said.
This is a really fine snapshot.
But since you requested critique....The butterfly is flying out of the frame. There's no meaningful information on the left side and 2/3'rds of the left side needs to be cropped off (too much empty space). There's a serious loss of detail in the under-exposed portion of the butterfly.
IMHO, a picture without composition (rule of thirds, golden rectangle, repeating forms and objects, etc) will rarely ever be considered as anything other than a snapshot.
Since most of the picture is white, you can easily pull the area of the butterfly and the area to the left closer to eachother. That could make the composition more satisfying.
Though, I love snapshots personally, so it's fine the way it is by me!
We don't take too kindly to swearing when someone gives you an opinion. Please refrain from it in the future. When you post in the critique gallery you are asking for opinions, many times they won't be what you wanted. That's why you're in this gallery, to get advice, good or bad.
Just my opinion of course.
