Chosen as one of Cee’s featured bloggers for this assignment
Cropping is my friend, sometimes being the only edit I do to a photo. Often I am unsure where and what to crop. Most times I like discovering what unnoticed details emerge on the cropped photo.
My niece’s beautiful hands, the cropped version showing the detail of her nail polish.
When a photo is cropped a lot more about the scene becomes apparent. I took this photo because I liked the contrast of the 2 ladies dressed traditionally eating an ice-cream cone. When I took the photo I thought that they were young women. The cropped version shows that they are older than I thought.
A different photograph emerges with cropping.
A gently weathered home in the Drakensberg Mountains. I prefer the composition of the original photo.
