  2. It is with deepest regret that we announce the passing of one of our long-standing members, Gary Coyle.
    Many visitors will recognise both his work as a sports photographer, and his name as a prominent community member. He registered with Talk Photography back in 2006, not long after the start of the site and has been a regular contributor since.

    It goes without saying that Gary will be sorely missed by many members, and his passing is a huge loss to the photography community.

    Our thoughts are with his family at this time.

    Funeral details :
    Dewsbury Crematorium
    Tuesday 13th September 2016 at 2pm.
    Afterwards at Batley IDLC (Batley Nash).
    All welcome.


    There is also a discussion thread here if anyone wishes to add their own thoughts.

    Took this not so long ago & I am wondering if I should have taken it
    in landscape orientation for future ref?

    Comments & advice very welcome.

    Looks good to me. I would leave it as it is.

    the extended arms are asking for portrait since you have them in such a good compositional arrangement
    you need to just leave this and if then you want to do any cropping at all just a bit from the bottom up to the fingers this would take out the leggy part of 'miss' on the left and keep eyes moving upwards
    cheers

    I too think the portrait orientation is good. I would however consider cropping just above the hands which would leave the focus more on the faces.

    Thanks all, you are right, it should be left as it is.
    Maybe if the girl on our left had her arm down, I could
    Have turned it landscape.

    It's pretty much perfect as is.

    To turn it landscape would mean a crop just under miss on the right's chin, indeed I'm not even sure that you could get a workable landscape crop out of that image.

    I say again, it's perfect as it is.

    Thinking on however, there *is* something that niggles me slightly about the pose from a mumbo-jumbo psychobabble point of view....

    Mum's back is to one of the daughters, and the other daughter is within Mum's embrace.
