    An afternoon spent driftwood hunting turned into an impromptu call to battle. I was happy I had my camera to capture it. Not so happy I had the wrong focal length so I could not get a tighter shot. Moments like these are fleeting...

    A tighter shot might have changed the energy of your photo Khai. Yes, you could have been able to better focus on his expression, but you might have lost the expansiveness of the space around him, and that he is the lone "king" of this tiny piece of valuable driftwood in the vast sea. I love that you shot wide, revealing a better sense of place to your moment and his proud roar.
