    very attractive …but the narrow crop kind of upsets me (but thats just me) did something need cropping out?

  • Thanks; the lush and exuberant growth certainly attracted me!

    I wanted it tighter than the original, and I’m never afraid of a narrow or square crop (unlike my former boss, for whom every image had to be 10×8, no matter what the original neg size). Here’s the original uncropped:

    Feel free to lift the pic and show me if you prefer a different crop.

    i like the colour and the little dark bits behind…still not a great proportion (i’m a bit of a 2×3 myself)

  • Well, we agree on the mess at the top, but I still prefer taking out the messy stuff at the sides as well. When I was taking the image (difficult, crouching down holding a wee compact, no tripod, slight breeze) I was seeing the pic as a mass of leaves with a meandering space in the middle, but the final pic didn’t quite work out that way.

  • This is the image I was aiming for, but don’t like it so much after all.

    Mind you, looking at it again…

    I have to agree with Soxy, Duncan. That S shape running through the middle in this last example is a very good compositional feature.

  • Thanks Walks. This is what I was originally going for, but got lost along the way. I will go back to it and work it up properly, soon-ish :)

    Love the tighter crop, Duncan!
