To crop or not to crop

Recommended Posts

I'd thought I'd share this story with you all.  I took several pictures of the full moon coming up behind St Michaels Mount in Cornwall last year. This one I uploaded as was, and then with a crop as I thought the ship spoiled the picture.  As well as putting out with Alamy live news I also sometimes tweet my pics and sell to the local papers. The WMN  put the picture on the whole of the front page including the ship.  Shortly afterwards I had people emailing me asking to buy prints - all were related to the boat in some way, either the owners, crew etc.

All I ever remove are dust spots, stray tree branches protruding into the frame, birds and the like.

 

Personally, I'm not a fan of manipulating editorial images. In fact, I find it scary.

When I first looked at it, I thought the boat makes the picture and wouldn't have considered cropping it out.
