Thread: Racoon

  1. #1

    Default Racoon



    1. in what area is critique to be sought?

    I am a beginner seeking comments on how to make a photo more impactful and compelling. I also want to improve in the composition of the picture.

    2. what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
    I want the viewers to know that the animal is running, hope i achieve that.

    3. under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
    mandai zoo, taken by surprise

    4. what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
    I felt that the composition is not there, the pic looks flat, the subject is quite small should have zoom in further(i was not prepared), i would like the pic to be more dramatic

    Thats a coatimundi bro... sure hope this is not taken in Singapore, or at least not outside Singapore Zoo. They do not belong here... LOL! I think a bit of zooming in would do great or at least cropped in. The rest I think is great!.... All the best and happy new year!

    not enough weight given in the picture to your subject, considering the cluttered environment it is in.

    i am not sure if this is the best angle to showcase the animal either.

    Do some croping and a slight blur to the background might let that animal stands out.

    this image suffers from insufficient focal length and general snapshotozia

    just kidding brother

    the perspective can be improved but i doubt if you had that opportunity or time luxury...... if the fella was a regular and/or in its territory and you knew the line of path/travel .... well you get the idea..... get yourself properly armed and position yourself properly

    well, at least its a captured shot which is still better than no image at all

    A closer crop should do wonders for this. If this is the uncropped picture, you should have no problem cropping away 3/4 of it or so.

    Calling someone a local Steve Irwin is an insult to the local. Those really in the know about widlife experts will know what I'm getting at.
