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.

Cattle Egret:

 @IKLland has helped me a lot with crops, but I'm also seeking input here.  I uploaded three copies of the same photo to this checklist; each a different crop.  I've linked to the one that I cropped the most but think that perhaps the second most cropped picture may be a better choice.  This is the photo immediately preceding the one that I've linked to.  I think that maybe the way that I cropped the last one degrades the overall lighting a drop.  I don't always crop this much, especially when doing so brings out imperfections in the photo, such as my cropped Wood Stork photo from the same checklist.  I believe that to a minor extent, the most cropped Cattle Egret photo does this, but am not certain other share my views.  In any event, I'd like to know what you guys think.  Did I link to the best crop, or are either of the other two better?

The links no longer work since I changed the observation to Great Egret.  If the embedded photos stop working, pls just look at my checklist and let me know which of the Great Egret pics you think are the best:

Two recommendations:

1. When you look at our images here, as well as good images elsewhere, take notice of the crops. Are they tight, loose, in the middle? Where is the bird positioned in the frame? 
 

2. MAKE sure to watch this video.
