    Weird crop, I know, but I'm wondering if this works at all. Thanks for looking.

    Just....show me all of the eye on the right, and I think you'll have a winner. :thumbup: I like these tight crops. :)

    I agree with Terri. Include the right eye (his left) and you'll have a great shot! The dof is great, but maybe a teensie tiny bit shallow. I just wish I could figure out what the people in the background are doing a bit better.

    i would say either all the all eye on the right or crop it enough so you don't see any of the right. agree with meysh that maybe a bit less dof in background would work, doesn't have to be razor sharp, just enough to add an interesting 'element' to the story.

    oh, I dunno... I must be odd-man-out. I like the one and a half eye thing.

    I like the half an eye. I even like the dof, I think more detail would pull your attention away from the eye and a half.
    I'd quite like the guy to close his mouth though, not that that's got anything to do with the compostion as such!
