    Blake already called me out on everything being almost dead center, I was too excited about actually being able to go out and shoot in some nice weather that I didn't even think of proper composure :wtc:

    Nice pics. I don't think centering them would make or break these images... they are what they are.

    I find it amazing those giant tortoises can live to be around 130-140 years old.

    I just remember being a kid and the zoo letting you ride those big guys and now they have them caged in like the rest of the animals :wtc:

    That's part of the learning process, and remember that Blake isn't a photographer. Just because he thinks he knows, doesn't mean he knows.

    what were you shooting with previously? i really want to get a 40d, but i might save and get a 7D for video capability.

    Going in order...

    1) Tortoise looks a bit soft or maybe out of focus. Were you shooting wide open?
    2) Now he's sharp, if possible I would have tried to get a bit lower for better perspective, but obviously could have been impossible depending on the enclosure the tortoise was in
    3) Croc needs some swimming room, give the view a sense of direction and frame him up more to the right
    4-5) Cut off bird's feet, could use better framing (like you mentioned)
    6) I think that shark photo could be better in landscape orientation. Portrait makes it look cramped to me
    7) nice lighting, I like it

    5 and 7 are very nice :) But ya the feet being cut off is unfortunate.
    But really not very bad for your first outing! Must be the camera ;)

    1.Yeah, I was wide open and trying to focus on the eyes, instead I got the forehead...

    6. I kept trying to get him with a landscape shot, but thats with all the crappy reflections on the glass thats best framing I could muster.

    Thanks for the feedback on the rest of them, its always good to hear from anothers perspective.
