    Piglets

    I've resumed my 365 project for 2014. This is from day 2. Comments and critique welcomed. Suggestions cheerfully explored.

    Cute, perhaps a slight vibrance and contrast increase. Also a dark gradient from the top of those vertical boards might enhance your main POI, which I assume is the one looking a the camera.

    Re: Piglets

    C, This one cries out for a tight crop around the piglets' heads. I would crop it just above the back babe's rear. Really, it's the little guy facing the camera that steals the show, so depending on how sharp it is I would consider cropping to only him/her, using a little wildness with the composition. Nice shot.

    Re: Piglets

    Thanks for your thoughts all!! I was dancing around cropping it tighter and doing so takes away the distraction of the slats from the back of the barn so I went with that suggestion. It brings home the eye contact with this little piggy. Thanks HMinx & GB.

    Brawsley - Thanks for your input and welcome to the PR forums. I would love to know, specifically what is nice about the first shot if you have the time, (content, comp. exposure, what?). Obviously, 3 month old piglets don't hold still while I recompose or take direction very well but I do have a horizontal shot from the same set which I like and happily add to the pile for review if you choose to review and comment on this one instead.

    I'm thinking the same as Pete, here!

    Agree on the tight crop...I think a square crop would be great, if you have any width on the frame to re-gain, or another capture that still has the same character looking at you. A tight frame of 4, with the "ham" in the back would be neat to see.

    Interesting suggestion, so are you saying a crop more like this?

    Re: Piglets

    I would suggest just a tiny bit more off the right to get rid of that ear and trotter creeping into the image, though I do like your edit .
