As Per Suggested
I'm a big fan of cropping out distracting elements in my images. I do it in-camera as much as possible. If not possible, I don't mind cropping a little post-production. I also enjoy the "square" format you can often edit if you take the photo properly.
Yesterday I posted two images of some lilies that I have in my mini-garden. Neither of those two above concepts occurred to me. Duh!! Sometimes I just let myself get into a mental rut and then I wonder why my images are so boring and ordinary.
A friend commented on the post and suggested I crop this image into a square. Another duh!!!
So....as per suggested, here it is.
So much better. Thanks, Jeff.
