As \we photo critics do this job as volunteers, a 'thank you' is always appreciated (no 'thanks' = no more critiques ).

message Photo Critique:

First impression: First impression is that the subject (manta) pops out of the picture. I like that in a photo. The Manta looks as if he sees you!

Technical ( score from 1-6, best is 6 )
Exposure : 5, Colours: 5, Sparpness: 4, DOF ( depht of field ) : 3, Contrast : 3

Suggestions :I like the image and it's color, I think the image would be sharper by shooting closer and in doing so a wide angle lens would be handy. This image looks like it might have been taken with natural light. Godd use of the lighting in my opinion!

Composition:
Composition is lacking but understandable as it was probably quick shooting that captured this image. Angles and the way the subject fits in the image is very important. I would like to have seen the complete wing span exhibited. This could have been accomplished as I said using an wide angle lens.

Suggestions: See next post

Suggestions :I think that a little cropping might make this a better image. Sometimes composition can be created and I think cropping this and closeup of the head would make a very interesting image.

Thanks for entering your images and please continue, we are glad to have you involved in our contest! Good Luck and Save the Sharks!!!!!

I would have liked to have gotten the complete wing span ... thought I had... I was using a cannon G10 w/o any zoom... I think shutter lag time was a contributing factor....enclosed was 49 seconds earlier..
