Hey Thomas,
I was worried you clipped the foot in the UL.....although I may prefer a hair more room myself....as i like them tight I am OK with this presentation. This is just outstanding!!! Sharp where it needs to be with an excellent angle/view and lit prefectly! Super job!!!:cheers:

Excellent! Wow. I like the angle you chose--from above. Beautiful details. By cropping tight, one focuses on the fly!

Maybe a little tight at the top as you say Roman,but I missed it as I was focusing on the square comp.

I think you did a really good job there, I would suggest however to add a little canvas, I find it very tight in the frame.

Wow, Thomas, this is exquisite! I love the angle and the detail on his face that we rarely get to see. I am also enamored with the wings - the lighting and exposure is fantastic and really sets them off. I might give it a sliver more room all the way around just so the back leg isn't so close to the frame's edge while still maintaining the square crop. You really hit a homerun with this one!

Love this, Thomas! It's crisp and clear where it needs to be. I have no problem with the tight crop.
