We have large Tuart trees around our property, some needed trimming back (not good with heights). I asked if i could take some pictures while he worked.

Hello Luke and welcome to the forum. When you upload images here, be sure to tick the "Full image" box beside each one so that it doesn't just show a thumbnail. I've done that for you in this instance.

As for the picture, it's sharp enough and looks good. I would have been tempted to zoom out just a bit and captured the chainsaw a little more, even as much as to see the tip moving or chips flying. As is, it's not so noticeable that he is a tree trimmer (could just be a lineman). I didn't even notice the saw tip until way later.

As is, this is still a good image and if it's what you had in mind when snapping it, then job done.

Welcome Luke!!!

This is a tough call as Roger mentioned above showing more of the saw would definately add interest, but a tight crop puts the emphasis on the man's face. Not sure there is a right or wrong.

Overall good exposure and sharpness. The limb coming out of the side of the head bothers me. I would have tried to repositioned before I took the shot. If that wasn't possible, then maybe a little creative editing post to minimize it.
