Hey guys, I would like to her your opinion on this one.
Do you think It should have been a little bit zoomed out?

Zoom in or out. Chin chopped off looks wrong.

Should have zoomed out; yes. The image itself feels 'broken' with his chin chopped off and there isn't much context for the title without some portion of the tank visible.

I agree with previous posters, so I am just as smart as they are.

I think if you crop more off the top, it might save the image.

I assume this shot can be re-taken? Your focus seems to be on his two front teeth to me, not sure what settings you used, but a smaller aperture and focusing on the closest eye and zoomed out a bit more would be better IMO.


Cool concept overall!

For some reason I felt compelled to make this a grittier, more battle-like image, with a tighter crop. Forgive me if I'm completely off. :)
