Punctuation that Basks

Discussion in 'Digital SLR' started by Ben Dover, Jul 28, 2010.

  1. Trolling for attention again with your manipulative thread-hijacking
    tactics? Have you tried getting that bottomless attention deficit pit of
    yours fulfilled using real people? What's that? Nobody will do that for
    you? Figures.

    What a great suggestion, you stupid **** of a buffoon. That's not going to
    rid this of the BAD central X composition and it will make the light come
    unnaturally from the bottom of the image. As if it wasn't bad enough.

    Go ahead, give some more suggestions on how to make this pathetic
    composition even worse.

    I feel like I'm stuck living in a world of full of mental retards and I'm
    the only who can reason and think adequately.

    I ignored its attempt to divert the discussion from composition to itself.

    Generally, I prefer the leading space in an image to be on the side
    where the object faces if the object is the kind where a "face" is
    discernable. A "face" can be the side of an inanimate object as well
    as a living object. I have a slight preference for left-to-right
    photos with the leading space on the right.

    I also prefer the "face" of a diagonal object to be placed at the top
    where the diagonal runs from the lower part of the image to the higher
    part.

    General rules, not mandatory rules.

    In this photograph, there is no leading space side because I cropped
    more to the square than the rectangle. Your suggestion follows my
    other rule about the direction of a diagonal. However, the stem the
    dragonfly is resting on kinda requires the downward facing that I
    used. Try it, though.

    This image is not a "pride of the portfolio" image. The lower
    left-side wing is out of focus and the two extra branches don't help.
    Dragonflys are interesting mostly because the detail of the wings is
    delicate and pretty. Basically, a dragonfly photo is good if you
    catch the lacework of the wings and some body detail. You'll never
    get a really interesting dragonfly photo, though.* They don't _do_
    anything interesting.

    I posted it because I went out yesterday with the specific intent of
    looking for an insect photograph which would lead to being best
    displayed with a square crop. Dragonflys are in abundance in this
    area if you go near water**. They are "snap and hope" shots, though,
    because they don't light long and the wings keep moving. I couldn't
    afford to shoot dragonflys on film and pay-per-shot.

    *Same with moth shots. They are never really interesting shots, so we
    judge them only by sharpness and background. They are in the
    category of "You did it right but it doesn't do anything for me"
    shots.

    **The same reasoning our troll shoots moths. My range includes areas
    of standing water and dragonflys, and his range is limited to his back
    yard around the porch light. I don't think he's ever ventured out
    beyond his mother's property line.

    I shot ONE in-flight moth this year to simply prove to dumbfuck trolls like
    you that P&S cameras can focus fast in the pitch dark. The others were a
    special 1.5 month long project years ago to document ALL families of
    insects in one region of the country devoid of that documentation. The only
    insect photos (out of the 700+ species I documented during that 1.5 month
    long project) that survived still being on the net are the moth photos,
    which I contributed to someone I knew. Where's the other 650+ species from
    other insect families I photographed for that project? You'll never see
    them. Well, I've posted a few, just to show you macro-morons how to shoot
    macro images properly. Because ALL your images are completely hopeless with
    their too shallow DOF or destroyed by having to use flash. What a ****-load
    of amateurish CRAP.

    Get your head out of those moths' asses.

  8. Ignored, as this thread was never about others' image compositions until it
    was hijacked by **** trolls, you **** of a TROLL.

    I did before posting. I agree that the OOF branches can be a distraction.
    Application of a little puppet warp can solve the problem.

    Not even to go the the doctor?
    I had trouble finding a tree surgeon who would make a house call.

    Going to the doctor is admitting that nature is stronger than you.
