- I like this shot but it does not do well in competitions. Please give me your inputs. What's missing? What's wrong?
Hi Joe. Not an easy question to answer. First off I must say this is a super sharp shot of the Skink which appears to be looking straight at you. I have never entered a photographic competition so I have no idea what the judges look for.10 August 2014
My impression is the shot is verry busy, my eye is constantly wondering away from the littly guy looking at the twigs (for want of a better word) and leaves, especially the ones on the right of the picture, would it be possible to darken them down a bit or blurr them to reduce their impact.
The twigs over his back are not helping either, not that you could have done anything about them.
Just a few of my thoughts Joe, I hope I have not caused offence.
All the best.
