These are just a few of my photos that are unique with their own beauty. Although these landscapes are uniquely different, there is one element in common. They are all cropped. With this simple step, each photograph improved  just by removing extra stuff from the perimeters that cluttered their beauty. In others words, I got rid of the junk to improve the overall look. Not a bad idea….Maybe we should try that in life, as well.

  1. Love all the photos especially the night lights in Nashville. Maybe because my sister lives there, lol. I am reiterating it here again, Laura, that you take exceptional photos. Amazing shots! Thanks for sharing them. 🙂

  2. Awesome pictures! I especially love the blue and green one. That green is so fresh! I agree about cropping, it’s my most used tactic for editing. Sometimes it’s all you need to do. It can give pictures a polished look and it’s just so easy to do afterwards – of course it helps if the original photo was already well framed. And about editing junk out of our real lives – so true!!

  3. This is a great post. I just want you to know that I have just nominated you for the Liebster Award because I think your blog is Awesome. Check out my current post for more info.

    • Thank you Lorrie! I appreciate it much. I was nominated for a challenge a few weeks back and was behind on my assignments too. I hope to post the challenge and your nomination soon. Thanks again! 😃

  4. I especially love the fall photo, and the seaside photo in Florida.
    Just curious, how much does the rule of thirds play into your cropping decisions?

    • I think it’s important in balancing your focal point. But if you have no focal point in mind, then I don’t think it matters. The main subject should be placed slightly to either side when cropping, for that balanced look. Ideally, the photo could be taken that way to eliminate cropping but I’m not that good. I’m still learning especially through this course. 😃 Great point! I definitely need to work on that!
