    I visited Jamestown today (at midday DOH!) and I was taking pictures like any tourist....

    This is my favourite shot of the day, I love the man's expression. I am undecided how o crop this photo, these below are what I think would look good. I have still to do the rest of the editing (cloning sharpening straightening etc)

    What do you think works best, or do you have a better suggestion?

    This is the original, I used my Canon 30d and 50mm f1.8 (here for large)

    Ok thanks 3 I think it is then, does he need straightening or do you think because his gun is at an angle it makes him look crooked?

    This isnt about the crop but i just went back and looked at your EXIF data. It says you were shooting at f/2 which in my mind is definetly not that good. If you had enough light to shoot at 1/3200@iso100 then you should be shooting at a smaller aperture to get a sharper image. Its nice to have nice fast primes but that certainly does not mean that you need to be shooting that fast.

    ^^ to JimmyO.

    And #1 to me is the best of the bunch. I don't know how I'd crop it to make it better, but it needs some kind of cropping.

    Perhaps she was shooting for a nice bokeh. And I think the sharpness is fine as long as you don't crop it to unreasonable amounts.

    I like #3 the best..

    It was just a general tip. Actually when i first looked at it the IQ looked really bad (no offence) and i thought you were shooting at a high iso but turns out that wasnt the case.
