This week’s “lesson” ~ be mindful of where you are cropping. In most instances it is wise not to chop off limbs. Courtney’s examples were proof of this point.
While I was trying to capture the ♥ which was being created by the curved necks of these flamingos, I applied the rule of thirds. Upon uploading and critiquing my own photo (which I do all the time), I wasn’t thrilled with the look of the photo. I thought the photo lacked my “subject” and after reading the lesson about “cropping”, I noticed I had indeed cut off the flamingos lower leg at the point of his/her knee caps. Yuck!
I decided to crop the photo down to create the photo I had in my mind‘s eye. I am much happier with the results.
And a big thank you to Courtney for a new 4GB card, now I can practice, practice, practice.
