Exercise: Cropping (TAoP)

Objective: To select 3 of my own photographs and experiment with different ways of cropping.

This exercise seems like a pretty straightforward one, and I’m always looking at different crops when editing my pictures.

Here are a few to demonstrate.

This shot is sunrise at Santa Cruz beach. This is the original.

The next is a stain glass church window. Below is the original.

Here is the original image of some children I met in Cambodia.

I thought this crop works well as the first two children are exited and confident, while the children on the right are wary and more reserved resulting in 2 completely different images.
