Cee’s Compose Yourself Photo Challenge: #15 Cropping Tips

I’m a big fan of cropping and I try to seize every opportunity I can to do this. I tried to find a variety of photos to crop and here they are!

These photographs are my contributions to Cee’s Compose Yourself Photo Challenge: #15 Cropping Tips. 

In my first picture, cropping all the bystanders out makes a big difference.

Here is a picture I took when we were in Disney World.

And here they are close up.

In my second picture, I wanted the dandelion and its shadow to be the focus by cropping out some of the other stuff.

After cropping, I think that the shadow plays more of a part in the whole picture.

In the next picture, I liked the reflection in the puddle but felt that it was easy to over look.

And after. I probably could have cropped even more. 

And finally, another dandelion picture. I liked how the flower with fuzz is bent over the flower and I wanted them to be more prominent than the grass surrounding them.
