Cropping (Two Photographs)

Cropping raises all kinds of questions, including should I crop? As cameras have an aspect ratio that will not fit most frames that alone makes cropping pretty much a standard. Macro Photographers crop almost all the time. There are “rules” for cropping (of thirds, golden triangle etc.). There is also cropping for drama, etc. Often excluding a piece of the whole makes little difference to our minds in grasping what a subject might be. There is even a school of photography where getting as close as you can without losing the ability of your audience to understand the subject e.g. in portraits cropping close and focusing more on the face than the other parts of the head. Personally I think experimenting with cropping never hurts.
