Its nice technically. I think the crop is too tight, would of been a better composure to have more of his shoulders and useing the rule of thirds.

The headgear and goggles tell a story about who he is ... but it is lost without more context.

I agree with the above, a less tight crop would be nice, but I like it as is too!

I didn't read the above.. I think he is too much in the middle and I would tone down the reds just a bit. Otherwise I think it's a great photo, he looks like someone just said something really stupid, or he must just be friends with Bitter :lol:.


You also have a tiny bit of sensor dust!!!

Thanks for your responses. As for the crop issue, I did have a bit of an problem with horizontalitis at the time (which is even worse considering my D1X has an integral vertical grip that I forget exists), so what could've ended up as more usable pixels became more green bokeh that I simply hacked off.

@MissCream, good eye. I've been prolonging cleaning that thing for too long. Most of the time I just use Gimp's "heal" tool, but not even using that on this shot is just laziness to an extreme degree.

Excuse my ignorance, but if you're asking if this is how the shot was originally composed- it isn't. I'm pretty sure it's the same vertically, but I took some green off of the sides.
If that's not the answer you're looking for, I'd have to trouble you to restate the question.

I have a piece of dust in my lens I just cant get rid of and it looks just like the ones in your picture. I was just wondering if it was the original because you might be able to get a decent portrait crop out of it :)

Nope =/ I'm an idiot so naturally I put the .NEF in the trash after cropping and making some exposure compensation adjustments before compressing into a JPEG. External hard drives are in my future.

Yup, remember portrait orientation!

And...he's hot.

@TwoTwoLeft, actually he just landed it. The man was flying a B-17 at an annual WWII convention in my state. You could ride it for a modest $900!

Don't know why but when I saw him I was imagining an Austrailian bush pilot flying a pontoon plane.
