A Tale of Three Crops: Part III

Final Episode for the Holiday Weekend.  FYI, I'm spending most of this weekend in the darkroom.  So you may see print comparisons soon.

Above the Crop, Below the full frame.  The original composition has way too much sky and the rocks in the upper left are not well exposed and add nothing to the image.  So get rid of them!

A Tale of Three Crops: Part II

Here an asymmetrical crop.  No reason why the tree has to be in the center.  And I found somethings on the right side (Full Frame Below) that I wanted to eliminate.

The exposure here wasn't great, but I discuss those problems on the 52 Rolls Page.

A Tale of Three Crops: Part I

Second day of Shooting at the Moab Photo Symposium in Hunter See more here at Week #19 of the 52 Rolls Project.

Here we are going to take a look at images not sown there.  More on Cropping, as I prepare to go into the darkroom.  Two take on Cropping.  First the 'uncropped' image:

Several distractions here, like the back pack and the small corner of sky in the upper left.  So Below, I did what you are supposed to do, 'crop in the camera' by moving in closer to the subject:

This is the one that I will print.
