My Life in Pictures

Adventures in amateur photography


After seeing on another blog post the dramatic difference a mere crop job can do, I decided to run a few experiments of my own. What do you think?

Pink flower photo before...

...and after!

Small purple flower before...

...and after! This is one of my favorites.

Yellow marigold before...

...and after! This is my favorite of the bunch, I think.

I liked this original

Not sure how I feel about the after.

There was too much background drowning out this flower.

The "macro" crop really brings the attention to the details of the photo.

Another too-busy background

Much better 🙂

Last but not least, another baby purple flower

I love how much the stamens pop in the cropped version.

    Very nice! Isn’t it amazing what detail is actually in the photo?!
