I was looking at one of the pictures from the last post and decided I didn’t make the best decision when cropping it (goes to show I shouldn’t do these things right before bed when I’m tired).
After thinking about it, I decided to re-crop. I like this perspective much better.
What do you think?
I think it obviously causes your eye to focus on the feel of the horses. Rather than being distracted by the other “unimportant” things in the picture.
When I’m doing graphic design (my day job) I’ll play around with my design until my eye feels good about it. I want there to be a path that it follows, that also makes sense. I want the message I’m trying to convey to be easily read in a very short time. I don’t want anyone to have to study my design to try to figure out what the point of the design is.
I guess the same goes for photography. The picture above causes you to focus on the relationship between the two horses. The one below has too many distractions. And the moment is lost.
