Cropping Challenges (Two Photographs)

The full panorama shot in my view has impact, and while busy is interesting. However, it’s not in a standard format like 8.5 x 11, it’s as shot with an aspect ratio of  35mm film.

The second shot is 8.5 x 11, the format standard for frames (and my usual format for that reason). Given the subject there is more than one crop that would work. Blogs and on-line forums can restrict the formats/aspect ratios we can use, but is worthwhile to think about how different crops and aspect ratios can lead to interesting results.

  1. Excellent advice. I’ve also been told to look closely at one’s image because you might have more than one image. It’s how you crop that can lead to that result.

  2. You have about 4 different crops by my calculations… Great multi-capture!

  4. I must say I like the close-up shot of the bottom best, but that’s a hard decision. I agree – you could make many photos as of this by cropping it different ways.
