Thread: The Goldfinch

    The Goldfinch

    A goldfinch Silhuete. I like this photo because it break all the rules of composition. I like the position of the goldfinch and the background. Perhaps with a little more o DOF would be better.

    Hi, Rui;

    I like it: it doesn't break all the rules - the diagonal is very strong. If anything, I might like less DOF, because I find the foliage a little distracting. If the outline of the finch and the branch it's on were the only sharp lines, they'd really grab your attention.

    Cheers,
    Rick

    A nice framed shot. I agree with Rick, it might be good to reduce a bit DOF.

    Very cool! I had to look at the original for a minute before I got it. That's "breaking down the 4th wall" or something like that.

    Cheers,

    Hi RIck,
    Hi Yan,

    Thanks for your comment. Perhaps youŽre right. The foliage could be blured. IŽll try it with PS.

    Best,

    Rui
