Today was a stressy day at work and then there also was the solar eclipse, no I haven’t seen it because the sky was totally overcast the whole day, which is annoying as I live in one of the sunniest spots of this country and then on a day like this we have clouds? Anyway I decided to not go out and take new pictures but I wanted to show you guys the power of cropping! I will go through some of my pictures that I took for this course and will crop or “uncrop” them and show you guys the results. I went through my pictures and found two that were ideal for that. The first one was the one from the solitude day and the second one is one from the architecture day.
First the picture from the solitude day, this one I did already crop right at the beginning but I wanted to have the wide sand flat in the picture so I decided to only show you guys the big version but a lot of people that I showed the cropped version to said they like it better.
The second one is the nice landscape picture with the mist from this week. I showed you guys the cropped version as I was not totally satisfied with the placement of the horizon in the original shot. I therefore cropped it a lot at the bottom.
So what do you think? Which versions do you prefer? Do you think the cropping makes a big difference?
