Composition matters: Steller’s Jay at UBC Vancouver

STJA-UBC-2015_01_30

This photo of a Steller’s Jay is a classic example of why composition matters: If I had gone a few meters to my right and bent down a bit further, I would have gotten a better shot of this bird, since its tail would not have been cut off by a random twig, while still avoiding the appearance of twigs in front of its eye. But I still think this is a decent photo, so I decided to post it on my blog!

Taken on January 30, 2015 at the University of British Columbia’s Point Grey campus, next to Vancouver, BC, Canada, with a handheld Nikon D5200 and AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED (ISO 800, 300mm, f/5.6, 1/640).
