    Hi,

    ISO200, 30mm, F/2.8, 1/640. I need some feedback on the crop I've done (I've also done a bit to the pic in CS3, but not much). Very much a snapshot, and 0.2 seconds later he was off in another direction. I especially like the whole "man, I kinda wish I was 2 years again and could get away with playing with this car"-feeling and also the shadow on the brick-wall behind him.

    Here is the original - only resized somewhat:

    And here is the crop:

  2. That's a REALLY heavy crop, IMO. It probably won't print clearly above 4x6. The crop itself is good, I just wish you had gone in closer with the camera rather than photoshop. The look on his face is excellent, you caught a great moment.
     
  3. exactly as sonya said
    the crop is perfect..... but SO CLOSE IN.... it'll be hard to keep clear in print
    but.... a great moment to keep

    Thank you all for feedback, and the time you took taking a look :smile:

    I have some ideas for this picture though - I know the crop is way too heavy to be used in a print on it's own. It was a snapshot-moment and the next one I got (I literally jumped on my feet trying to close the distance) came out... well, let's just say that it didn't make it in the transfer :smile:
