Blue Glide -- Preferred Orientation?
« on: February 23, 2013, 11:04:02 PM »

Gliding across the sea into the setting sun.

I am not sure which works best. Nice thing about 4:3 sensors is that they have enough vertical pixels to go either way.

I would go for 'landscape' being better in line with the flow of the movement.

If it can't be done with Lightroom, I don't do it.

I would too, except that I wish the extra space were on the right instead of the left, so the bird would be flying into the frame.

While I agree with the line being better horizontally (with more leading space), for me the image has a greater issue in the bird is not sharply focused. It's close but I have a closet full of those.

It's hard. I'll bet for every keeper I have, I shot 50 or more trashbinners to get there and while I feel I have improved immensely, I am still a fledgling when it comes to panning a bird in flight and getting sharp focus.

Landscape works better for me, and agree that having more space to the right would be better.

I would add that unless there is something compelling about the rear view of a bird, I would try (not always possible, of course) to capture the bird coming towards me, preferably with the head visible.  I've got lots of birds leaving the scene, and few if any would be worth printing.
