Lakeside Breakfast by Chromakode Lakeside Breakfast by Chromakode
Found this little guy on a morning walk, buzzing around this little clump of flowers. Hope I didn't disturb his breakfast too much! =)

They usually don't seem to mind, though I can assure you that the proximity only lasts for a few seconds ;)

I would crop away the top of this, the line-thingy is a bit disturbing and doesn't need to be there. And it's a bit too big in full view, a bit smaller version would be nice =) Not all of us has LAAAARGE screens ;P

At first I was going to crop it, but I decided the opposite shoreline adds perspective and context that otherwise would have left the picture looking flat and less interesting. It's really too big? I thought that 1200 pixels wide would fit anything above and including 1280x1024 screens. Do you have a reccomended rule of thumb for image dimensions?

You don't need perspective in a macro. It's just disturbing when you can't see what it is.

I try to keep my pictures at 700x900ish. I've got a 1024x768 screen, and I don't give my browser the full screen.
Anyway, if you don't want your pictures stolen and used as stock you shouldn't upload so large pictures.

I understand your point, but am still quite attached to the composition. I am thinking that perhaps the issue with the shoreline is not in framing, but context... I've changed the title to "Lakeside Breakfast" to make it more obvious.
Ahhh, I see why the size would be a problem then. I'm not so much concerned about stock usage as I am usability. There are some details in this picture that I would not like to sacrifice in sizing it, though I will keep this in mind for future shots. Thanks very much for the critique and pointers lexidh! :D
