This week – Cee is a guest host on the Lens-Artist challenge. Also – the topic is the same for her challenge. Here is my entry for the week – a daisy – which is one of my favorite flowers
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???

All my life, I have always enjoyed taking pictures. Around 2008 is when I became more serious about it. I have found that through photography I notice things more such as the details of a flower, a little insect or the beautiful markings on what might be considered a “plain” bird.
Here is a macro of a flower where you can see the bits of pollen and dirt as well as the shades of yellow and green.
This little bug is a soldier beetle – kinda cute I think.
This is a common grackle. These birds can empty a feeder in no time but if the sun hits their feathers just right, you can see beautiful rainbow colors and their eyes are a pretty golden color.

It had been raining for a few days so I decided to take advantage of it and catch a few droplets on pansies.
