What Works Or What Does Not

I actually really like how she's not quite in the frame; it makes the situation seem even more lively and impulsive.

Thanks for the feedback. That aspect seems to get two different reactions. I actually like it for that reason as well. You gave words to my feeling.

Aye my dad and I often disagree on framing. I tend to think that not getting everything in the frame can actually bring focus to other areas of the photo.

Fingers and hair are cut off. Seems odd to me.

Thanks for the feedback...appreciate it. So far it seems to go two ways (personal preference I guess, not sure)...some people like the cut off and others don't...I know it doesn't strictly follow traditional composition rules. Do you think it would have been stronger without the cut?

× is shutting down on the 30th of April 2014

It is with great regret that I must announce that is closing down on the 30th of April 2014. Unfortunately I no longer have the time or finances to maintain the site, which may have become apparent by the lack of improvements over the past 6 months. This is mostly due to a shift in my plans for the future and what I want to do with my spare time.

There was a time when I spent every evening working on the site, and it has taken me a long time to decide on what to do with it. I have tried to get back into the swing of developing it, but alas I haven't been able to do so. Over the past few months it has proven increasingly difficult to justify the cost of running the site, as I have other interests for which I need the money and I have been reluctant to run the site as a business.

On account of data privacy and photo ownership, I will not be handing control of the site over to anyone else and all data will be deleted shortly after the shutdown date. However I will continue to keep the repository on GitHub and accept pull-requests and other bugfixes, as I know that the software is used elsewhere and I will try to support those of you using it.

Thank you to everyone who has used this site and uploaded so many wonderful photographs. I'm truly sorry for having to shut the site down, and I wish I had been able to do more for all of you.

Best wishes,
Robert May
