"Something Different"


Denver, US
          

We often strive to have our subjects be a large and prominent part of the image whenever possible. However, sometimes, less is more. Here's a pic of a mourning dove where there is definitely less. What do you folks think? Richard

It is different. I think the cactus is a bit overwhelming though – I would try cropping a little more that half from the bottom of the cactus.

Hi Richard,

I agree with Dave on the crop…
The bird is too beautiful, it deserves
more real-estate on the shot.

Well, sometimes, less is more, but here,
less is not much left!

Have a good time!

I find #1 very appealing. However, with such a subject ....."a rose by any other name...".
Well done.
