This week we are sharing some of our before/after photos to show how a crop can change the look. I almost always do a little cropping for compositional purposes. Here are 3 examples from photos taken this year.
Mrs. Mallard Duck – she was pretty far away from me in the original and I thought the shoreline was distracting. I wanted to bring her in closer because I loved the light on her feathers and the color of her eyes.
In this next photo, I turned a portrait into a landscape photo with the crop.
I did a major crop on this last photo because I wanted the rose buds to have all the attention.
So….. do you like the befores or afters???

Hi, Nora. I really like your crops! Well, done.
Thanks Patti !
Excellent. ‘Just ducky.’ 🙂
All your crops seem improvements.
Great examples, Nora. Loving your close up cropping 👍🏼
The befores are beautiful and the afters stunning. Cropping is an art in itself. So wonderful!!
Beautifully cropped, Nora! Roses are my favorite. 🙂
nice trio to crop – and the ending pink was a delightful pop of color and detail. powerful ending actually – and I don’t say that often – the photos led up that last one – enjoyed the experience – ha
