Your Photo: Our Critique

There's a great, distinguished feel to the snowy egret, and we love the catchlights, but we hate the totally overblown highlights. It's a real simple fix. Crop it to a tighter headshot in square format to get rid of the blown highlights and it's a much stronger composition. Remember, there's no rule that a photo can't be cropped, or that it much be rectangular and not square!—Jack HowardOnline Technology Editor This photo gets three stars on the PopPhoto Flash rating system.
