    Point well taken, but...

    1)I'm shooting this with an iPhone, resting on various structures (often a back porch railing, today the trunk of my car);
    2) The bigger concern than distance is the interplay between shadow and light, especially since I cannot control exposure using an iPhone self timer;
    3) There isn't enough good/natural light in my house or my office to shoot these indoors;
    4) My partner leaves for work before I do, so these are going to be self-shot; and
    5) I have to get to work, and so usually have about three minutes to get a workable shot.

    Or those that can actually be bothered take a half second to hold the blade when pulling through. I'm not OCD enough to play with it till it's perfectly centered, but if looks off if it's that far to the side.

    And yeah, I know yours was like that too. You should change it.

    One can hear if the speaker isn't mute.

    (I don't even know what we're saying anymore)

    @clarinetplayer if the quality of your hot cocoa is anything like that of your suit and tie, it should be the best you've ever tasted.

    Your mistake is in thinking that a tie dimple is objectively supposed to be centered. Id say most people like it there, myself, and Noodles, included. However, not everyone wants that. Some people in fact prefer an off center dimple. Its a little more louche, and there is nothing whatsoever wrong with that. Its just personal preference. As long as the shape and length is right, there is no hard and fast rule regarding how centered the dimple should be.

    You dont have to like it, but its not the kind of thing that can be critiqued as wrong, or needing work, imo.

    Also, given your eccentricities, Im kind of surprised that you are so bothered by it.

    ---

    Also, thank you all so very much for the kind words, thumbs, gifs, and emoticons, on my fit today. Much appreciated.

    Every time I tie my knot, I make sure that it looks just like a nice clean < blank > with a dimple right down the middle. [​IMG]

    My preference is dead center as well, but there are many well dressed dudes that prefer off center. I recall heisstillmatt discussing this once.
