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...
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.

There haven’t been many great photo opportunities lately, so I’ve been experimenting with what I can capture on my camera a bit, as well as with editing photos with GIMP.
It was rainy and there wasn't a lot to photograph, so I decided to see how it would look if I took a photo out my rainy car window. I though the effect was cool, I just wish it was a more interesting subject.
I discovered that the shutter speed in sport mode is indeed quite fast, as it captured this fan running on high without any blur.
This keyboard is in need of a cleaning.
I thought I hadn't succeeded in capturing the steam, until I looked at the photo on a computer.
At least the clouds Wednesday were pretty.
I'm enjoying playing with the color filters right now, I love the effect.
