I like the approach/vision. Technically you're in.
However the 2d shot is plain boring. Bird is in a dead center, nothing is going on, lighing is flat...

Here it is cropped:
Nah! Not extreme enough. Here's the final crop:
Lee, thank you!
One thing though: no matter how hard I tried I really don't see anything in the final image that would justify the trouble of cropping and posting. What were you going for?

The wood plug (that covers a screw) at the bottom of the image. You know, the part that's in focus.
Its the same plug that's to the right of the hardware (as you're looking at it) in the second image.
Oh, I see.. I thought about that, but it seemed too insignificant to me to suggest it should the the focus of the whole image. I think it only shows that I don't know much about boats to appreciate this kind of stuff
Here is the first Photo,
Here is the Follow Up Crop - CHECK OUT THE FRONT SEAT
I actually did this one the other way around as I'm fascinated by birds of prey - although I don't have a birding lens really - only 200mm
First the scenery... on a really dull day but I was thinking of the technique more than getting an awesome shot
That tiny tiny speck just above the trees on the left...
Then my second - slightly more obvious attempt- pic of a stream (I actually stopped to photograph the bridge which dated to around 1700)
Then the extreme zoom
So is this the sort of thing - I did have to use my "feet zoom" in the first one but the second one I didn't as it would have meant walking off the bridge - a somewhat larger step than I was willing to take
4 people say they see a little boy looking out the window...
Here are my attempts at a crop. My friend and I were casually smoking a cigarettes in my bathroom. Low and behold, a fly was buzzing around. After I chased it around for 10 minutes, I managed to knock it out. Needless to say, she was a very cooperative after that. Here they are, enjoy.
No photoshop, just submitted as shot.
Thank you Frank!
It's a crop alright... However I would like to call your attention to the fact that we are not simply trying to use this or that technique for its own sake, but also deliver a quality result by using it. Your VP entries did great. These - no so much...
