I'm getting obsessive about cropping and post-production. I started once again by wondering if the above may be a more interesting crop.
Instead of posting another series of alternative crops though, I thought it might be thought-provoking to explore a more collaborative approach.
I am posting the original image here, straight from my camera, before I adjusted the white balance and the exposure, before I cropped it, and before I applied a monochrome mix filter. I have also posted a full resolution version of flickr.
I would like to invite you to apply your own post-production to the image, in whatever way you feel optimises it, and post a link to the result in the comments.
If you're feelin’ it, I think this could be a very interesting opportunity to explore the effect of post-production in the current digital age of photography.
My comments are not currently set up to automatically handle and display images but if you post a link I will manually set it up so visitors here can easily view the alternate versions side by side.
In the future I’ll be hoping to explore other collaborative approaches to photography. Thinkin’ Day 517 and beyond here : )
