Obviously I didn't look at the pic, but why are his days numbered?
male tarantulas once matured their only goal is to find a female to mate they stop eating and constantly wander/roam about looking. risking predators etc. and then if they are lucky to find a female they are at risk of being eaten by the female once the deed is done. course in captive breeding the breeder usually feeds the female heavily in the hopes the girl wont try to make a meal of the poor guy but that doesnt always work or the attempts to save the poor guy to allow him to breed another girl so i need to find a person who can breed him and allow him to fullfill his lifes purpose i dont wanna watch him waste away trying to find what he will never find in my care.

Misty morning, Lake Sai. We've had a lot of rain this summer so the water level is really high.
Lovely shots. Just work a little more on the composition will be superb.
Woke up to this cool cloud cover this morning.
Great shot of this cloud cover :hearthrob: :redheartpump: You nailed it!:clapcat:

What do you recommend?
:)
Follow the Rules of Thirds for subject framing and for landscape shots, place the horizon either an inch to two inch above or below the frame. Subjects following there Rules of Thirds will draw the attention to the subject and horizon at top or bottom will give greater depth to the photo.

Only some shots have to have the subject right smacked in the middle of the frame as sometimes, rules must be broken for certain shots.

But there's no horizon! :lol:

That was kind of what I liked about the shots. The mist came right down to the lake, obscuring the mountains in the background, so all you could see was mist and water blending into one.

Yes, with all the mist, you still can draw the eye of the viewer to the subject, like the person on the boat and at the same time, show the mist and water as your photo has a contrast between the water and the mist.

I cropped your photo and tweaked a little on the contrast to make the monochrome shot stand out a little more. You still can see the mist and the shadows of the trees separates the mist from the water.

The horizon is actually the trees and the boat (imaginary line). For this shot, it's better to place the boat on the bottom of the frame rather than one top because if you place the boat on top, it defeats the purpose of showing the mist and by placing the boat below of the frame, it is understood that the boat is on the water rowing in the mist.
