I guess I love this Combo - K-1 and DA*11-18. Both pictures at 16mm, FF mode.

Thanks WPRESTO ! I like a strong opinion, and I can see why it would grab you. So much color and detail the K-1 grabs with the DFA100WR... and the natural lighting just made it pop.
The $64K question is, do you like it as much when uncropped seen above? Eric
It goes like this:

1) advice I received way back in the 1950's when I started photography, and which I followed both framing chromes and cropping in the darkroom doing B&W = fill the frame with your subject

2) generally I am, therefore, a ruthless cropper.

3) what is the "story" in your image?
A. a setting or landscape or tableau in which the anole is an accent or point of interest
OR
B. a picture of an interesting, colorful lizard
If A, do not crop, If B then crop

4) For me it would be a no brainer because if there's an animal in an image I take, 99.9% of the time that's what I wanted to photograph, not the setting with the animal as an incidental element.

5) BUT ALSO I would consider whether there was sufficient IQ to crop. If detail in the animal doesn't withstand a crop, better to leave the image as a setting with the animal just a POI or make the story, "an animal in its habitat," even if that's not what I originally wanted (as I've commented before, if an image turns our blurry or badly framed, make it worse with a filter and call it ART)


There's no correct answer. It depends on what you intended or want as the "story" of the image. But I find the cropped image far more interesting and pleasing.

Absolutely lovely! Aside from sounding like some demonic dentist drill, the D FA Macro is SO good on the K-1.

Pentax K-1 & KP
Excellent, good lighting with some shadow that give back some 3D to the subject, maybe you could have had the camera at a slight angle to have a bit more shadow on the left side, but that's already good, especial with eyes in sharp focus. Did you use face recognition in live view (just curious)?
