Dude…..you get my obsession with cropping now lol :D What a gorgeous shot Vikram! The insect stands out so nicely agains the green and the clarity is amazing!
Thanks Shelly!! I only cropped off the right side of the frame to make this square (nothing from the top and bottom). But I am seeing how cropping can help composition. Will take some time to get me off the old-school habit of getting it framed in the viewfinder itself :-)

Magnificent macro capture!!
Thank you so much Ken!
Awesome shot my friend! instant fave, even if it’s a bug!
LOL!! The one I’m working on now will REALLY creep you out!
square, round, oval, rectangle.. all beautiful here, Vikram! Gorgeous work
Thank you so much my friend! Plan to look through old files and see which can be rescued through a crop.
Don’t get me wrong…..I do try to fram in the view finder initially….but sometimes a crop can really give an image that little extra boost :)
I know … I’ve just been really slow to adopt this. In film days … unless you did your own printing, you couldn’t crop … so I just don’t think of it as an option (which is a shortcoming) as 10MP will still give me a large enough file to print decently.
If it doesnt work as it was originally shot, for me at least, I toy with it.. but cropping cant fix it all as you know! But making something square or longer than wide can really make a Huge difference. And it’s fun ;-) But Im telling you what you already know.. which means Im babbling.. so off I go lol
Nope …. I didn’t think pano!I know one can crop … I just so forget that in processing …. I’m going through older shots and finding pics that I can crop and use.
Great shot, lovely DOF and greens.
Thank you so much Ritva!
