    I've always thought dinosaur fossils should look big and intimidating. The museum doesn't have any really big fossils, but this was the best I could find (3 meters tall, 5 meters long)

    I'm trying to get a "ROAR! I'm bigger than you, and could kick your ass!" attitude in the photo.

    Do you reckon this a good angle for the shot, or should I try shooting from another angle? Perhaps if I move to the right a bit, and get the jaw & teeth full-on?

    I think it would work better facing the head straight on a bit undereath looking u more with a high contrast black and white.

    maybe take the photo a little bit lower down and include the feet some how. Pity the dinosaur isnt looking down towards the camera, but there isnt much you can do about that
