Share Your Best Photo of the Day


Message added by aveschapinas,

Folks: it's not OK to take other people's photos to edit and re-post. Just like we don't correct each other's spelling and grammar, we don't take it upon ourselves to decide that someone's photo needs correction. In addition, as has been emphasized before, you need to respect copyright.

Sure!!

Ok, well maybe not feedback, but I wanted to get your perspective and that of others on an issue. I do believe in the power of the square crop, but for my taste, it doesn't work well for 99.9% of bird photos. In fact, I find that the square crop for bird photos really takes away from the picture most of the time, perhaps unless it is an extreme close up portrait or something artistic like a close up of feathers.

So, I was wondering your thoughts? I do see lots of square crops in photos that users post here. I am trying to figure out the best crop ratio myself, and don't have it all worked out, but I was curious as to why people use it? Is it more social media friendly (Instagram for example)?

I try to avoid it, and agree with you that it takes away from the bird most of the time. In this case though, I couldn’t think of another way to crop it. That’s because of how close to the edge of the frame the bird was. Screenshot of raw file below:

4. It’s pretty noisy. 

Click the link. Whatbird makes the photo look really noisy. I'd say five although if there was room in the original photo I would have left a little more open space on the right side of the gull.
