Seeing the Crop

The Eye of the Beholder

Over the past few months I have been staying with one of my sisters in southern California. Since mid-March, we have been under state and county stay-at-home orders. My universe has been limited to the local neighborhood for photography. On a whim, I decided to explore details in tree bark and fence slats. I was surprised by what I found when I decided to see. Most of my recent posts have featured subjects I found in the trees and fences. The final images focus on a smaller section of the original shot, sometimes just a tiny detail. A comparison of the original and the final images demonstrate the power of cropping.

Join Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #96: Cropping the Shot


Truly, you have brought a new eye to cropping. Love all the descriptions your insights have given you. Most ingenious was the man in the Renaissance hat! Exciting.
