    a bit of a pig

    Normally when portraying animals, one concentrates (and focusses) on the eye - so what happens with piggy wigs whose eyes are deep set to the extent no shadow redemption will redeem and certainly no catchlight?

    No1 is the whole pig. No2 a conventional mug-shot falling slightly flat with no bright eye. No3, well yes its their snout that is their main finder. No 4, so is a snout shot the answer? URL as I seem to run out of attachment space.

    Like the last one best, the one that isn't there, it is a diferent angle to the usual, like the detail.

    Enjoyed looking at others in your gallery as I found it.

    Hi Chris,

    My thoughts are that #2 and #4 'work' for me, as Lincs1 says, #4 is definitely the best.
    #1 (whole pig) is just a 'snap' really (like I'd take!)
    #3 seems to be without any particular point of interest and, to me, feels dissatisfying because you cannot see the eyes, nor the ends of; the ears, snout or feet, i.e. there's nothing to look at!

    I'm not sure if that helps, or is drivel. Rgds, Dave

    thank you Nigel and Dave - was sort of thinking aloud/digitally and am quite pleased at consensus on no4 (including other sites)
