Patti invites us to do a photo editing exercise. Compare photographs as taken and edited with a cropping.
I always try to get the best of my photographs from the camera, but I rarely get it. Sometimes I even intentionally give a little more space so I can better frame the image on the computer. For this comparison I have searched in the files discarded photographs that could be improved with another framing
Horizon in the center, with a sky that is not interesting and action too far away.
A more panoramic image, cutting out part of the sky, trying to decentralize the horizon a little and straightening the photo slightly.
The main problem with this image is the lack of focus on the foreground petals.
If I had focused properly, I think I would have just needed a little cropping of the yellow zone.
The flock of birds over the cathedral caught my attention
I think a little cropping on the bottom and left wouldn’t hurt.
There are images that can work better in square format…
In that case, there’s no choice but to crop on the editing.
