To Crop Or Not To Crop..That Is The Question?!


I’m incredibly blessed to call this little island home. What a gift I receive each and every time I step foot outside my door…….

Photography 101-Day 15-Landscape & Cropping. Since Mother Nature has seen fit to envelope our island in dark clouds and thunderstorms, I’m sharing some past photographs!!! Some have been cropped, others have not.

  1. I love the scenery you shoot, and very well cropped photos!
    I especially love how the first photo has a foreground, a middle ground and then, in the distance, the background- and they’re also kind of in the “thirds” lines.
    I wonder if you’ve ever tried cropping the coastguard station with the station on the same horizontal line, but a little farther off to the side?

    • Thank you!!! I did try cropping the CGS off to the right…but it wasn’t working for me..there’s a power line tower off to the left that I wanted out of the photo…as it is, there’s a smaller one still in the photo 😁

  2. Man! The last two took my breath away. Especially the one of the marsh grass at sunrise. Those colors are so awesome. You truly ARE blessed to live in a place with such beautiful scenery…

  3. Whether you realize it or not, you have a great eye for balance in your pictures. Good job! I think it would be interesting to post the original pictures with their cropped version. Lovely photos!!

Have something to share....I'd love to hear it!!!
