    4. is an cool picture. I like how the eye travels through the OOF areas towards the frog, just peering up through the center. Nice photo.

    I like #4 but would crop tight. Maybe lose the top 1/4 or 1/3 of the shot and the righ 1/4, which will put that little window through at one of the intersecting thirds and remove some clutter. My eye had to search briefly before realizing what you were showing me.

    Thanks for your comments folks.

    Taylor, 786soul is seeing the image as I intended, a tighter crop would spoil what I am demonstrating. In situations like this a manual focus lens shines (what I mostly use) because you can pinpoint the point of focus amongst the clutter that a auto focus will not do. I did not get it exactly but close, as I was hand holding & I am not as steady as I once was.
