I took a picture of my friend while he was playing frisbee and i think this shot is AWESOME!!! I just had to share it. I wouldn't mind critique!

The only thing that makes me mad at myself about the picture is that i didn't get his feet in the frame, but it's all good, maybe i'll try again when and if i get a FF in the future. But other than that i love this picture.

I like the shot except your already mentioned feet missing and then also the person growing out of his left leg.

I would call it "white men can stretch" since you cannot see his feet :)

Why would you wait till you get a Full Frame camera to take a picture of a friend? Go play frisbee again but zoom out. Either by zooming the lens or foot zooming. Or, turn you camera 90 degrees and take it in portrait orientation.

ooo i have a picture of the same guy laying out

i kinda like how he's not looking at the camera but it probably would have been better. I need to learn to take a few more pictures instead of just taking one lol

Laying out huh? More like laying down. ;)

Nice feel to your photos, even if the events aren't totally captured.

thanks lol. I was looking at them again and i really do like that aspect of them not being truly captured, like you said.

But yes, the first picture. Awesome, but yet a fail with the feet lol
