Though the beast in question wasn't going to hang around while I thought about the best way to frame it
I came around the corner on a mountain track and just had time to swap the wide angle lens for the 70-210 zoom and squeeze off two frames before it scarpered.
I've looked at the neg and there's nothing more on the right. I could shave a bit off the left to shift the subject off centre and create a feeling of it "looking out" but I'm not convinced.
I've toyed with taking a chunk (all of that dried bush?) off the bottom though.
I try to crop wide when shooting, and do it on the pc.How much can you remember when trying to get off a quick shot.If your like me you get brain freeze trying to remember DOF,cropping,lighting,focal point and composition.

In a situation like that I'd always shoot first and then stop and think afterwards, if I've got the time to have another crack at it.
One of the advantages of having had the A1 for an eternity is that using it is second nature. By the time I've lifted to my eye I've switched it on, and am poised over the shutter release without having to think about it.
As much as I love the A1, I am getting VERY sorely tempted by the EOS20D.
