Taken it against a pool of water as background and mid-day last Sunday.



I would like to seek your comments on
- Framing/Composition
- Exposure/Tones
- Sharpness

Thank you for giving your comments.
Cheers,

- composition is boring imo... although i'm not too sure how you could improve it.
- exposure looks good. colours look good
- sharpness doesnt seem to be extremely sharp. maybe too large an aperature?

Instead of shooting at F6.3 try F8 and above. Max it up if you can. At 1/320, I don't think a tripod is essential thing to use. Try handheld and capture them in action from different viewing angle and select one of many compo/framing you had captured...

but how about flash? without flash it would be more blur.

anyway i think the flies are placed in the wrong edge of the frame, this photo looks very unbalanced and bias towards the right, sort of that side feels really heavy imo.

were you shooting in jpeg with in camera processing? the blue looks abit saturate.

Otherwise i would say the way framing simply killed the picture. try a tighter crop of cutting away all the spaces on the left and top
