Looking through your folders, it looks like nearly every one of your images is composed with the animal (or flower) dead center in the frame.

That is an extremely constructive comment. I wish to thank you for it.


The explanation is that all of the pictures in my folders were taken with my EOS 5 camera. Eye-control on the EOS 5 is painfully slow, and doesn't work vertically, so I disabled it and tended to use the central AF point. Hence the dead-centre subjects.


I have now changed to an EOS 3, and with the rather more capable ECF and much wider area of AF coverage, I'm no longer so fixed to the central point. I am also putting much more time into my technique now, and relying less on AF and Program AE (which was too easy on the EOS 5). I was too reliant on these things previously.


Your comment really made me realise that it was time to pull my own game up more to match my equipment. That's a process that will take a while, and practice, but I'm combining it with increasing my familiarity with the EOS 3.
