Project Cropping and extending

Three photographs were selected that were taken previously, each of a different subject. They were then cropped to show how you can consider how to explore new ways of organising an image. Both the original and cropped as shown for each photograph.

This was taken at the V & A Waterfront in Cape Town. I wanted to remove some of the clutter surrounding the drum players and focus on one in particular. The crop highlights the colourful body paintwork and the magnificent drums of the nearest drummer that were somewhat lost in the original photo.

Taken on safari in the Kruger National Park this leopard is one of my favourite photos. When I originally viewed this image I decided to crop it to focus on the facial features of this female leopard. She was looking directly at the camera as she was crossing the road in front of our vehicle to recover her cubs.

This view of a small boat at the Kyle of Lochalsh, isle of Skye is compromised I believe by the grey sky and the indistinct mountains in the background. By cropping the top layer of this image and creating a panorama effect the coastline and vivid boat are highlighted and shown to maximum effect.
