This weeks challenge from the Lens-Artists asks:
This week’s challenge is a chance to explore a photo editing technique and the benefits of cropping the shot. Show us how cropping helped to improve an image and create a desired effect. Include the shot “before” and “after” so we can see the difference.
So I wanted to use a fairly recent shot for this – and thought I would save this one from a recent early morning walk. I think The focus of the image works far better in the square crop. I always shoot a little wider than I intend as I have often found there is something just creeping into the image I want to keep, that my peripheral vision has not registered, hower if it does not work I can just crop it out.
Here is the original
And a cropped and edited version below.
