Av: F/3.5; Tv: 1/60; f: 72 mm (35mm-equiv: 454 mm); WB: Cloudy

Ok .. given the chance to re-take this snap, I would

  • Use a faster shutter-speed (for gods sake, with that kind of zoom - I ought to have done that)
  • As a consequence of point 1, open up the aperture to F/2.7 (what kind of idiot takes a split second snap with so much zoom without fully opening up the aperture?)
  • I honestly have no idea why I used that "cloudy" white balance setting. I'd set it to default.
  • This snap obeys the rule-of-thirds; only - the subject is in the wrong third of the photo! Given a second chance, I'd shift my ancestor to the right side of the frame.
  • I'd probably want to fine tune the depth-of-field .. but given the very short time within which I'd have to click the snap - probably i'd keep the DOF as least priority.
