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.
Based on the title of the post, I bet you thought I was going to get all deep and insightful, right? Well, surprise! I’m not. At least not today. Nope, today is all about the pictures. Below you will only find my amateur attempts at participating in Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Reflections and Shadows. (All of the heavy stuff will come later!)
I clearly remember taking this picture but for the life of me, I cannot remember why.
One sunny day, Beej discovered his shadow.
He tried to grab that spoon shadow for the longest time! 🙂
