here’s a collection of images which have had crop treatments to them . here’s the first on which has taken part of the image to make it the dominant part of the picture.
After (how could you resist that smile) The black dog is Bezial (Bez) and the tan and white dog is Earl
The next image has taken the subject from the centre to add dynamic movement.
The next image has had its aspect changed from horizontal to vertical
The next image is set out to the rule of thirds
Before This image wasn’t all that far out of the rule of thirds when checked against the gridline in Photoshop
After I used the straighten tool to line the bridge up so that the bridge could be used for the horizontal axis on the top rule of thirds line on the gridline and the tree in the foreground has been aligned on the far right hand gridline.
Reworked version with the horizon used as the focal point
The final image is done using CS6 and the perspective crop tool
