I haven't a clue as to how you arrived at your comment. My critique was honest and to the point. My suggestion was to push the processing further than the OP had and I included a sample of my suggestion. And additionally I told the OP that his second offering of the shot was an improvement but I felt the processing could be pushed further.

Well, he/she started out with a highly detailed wide shot, and then tried to fix its lack of compelling subject by cropping the image. Then you sort of took this to the extreme by cropping it even more and doing whatever processing was was required to smear out all of the details and turn it into a visual mess. I thought that you were making a commentary on fixing something that was broken by following that train of thought a few steps too far towards its inevitable conclusion.

My bad. It looked like you were making a joke. If you were, it actually would have been a good joke, and it would have been a mean joke, but it still would have been kind of funny.

but since that wasn't what you were doing, never mind. I guess I just misread your intent.

Having said that, if you weren't joking, I don't quite see what your version adds to the image.

I don't see the point in cropping an image just to suit composition since printing would be difficult. My crop retained the OP's original aspect ratio. Not sure how I smeared all the detail and turned it into a visual mess but that was not the intent.

My apologies for trying to help a new guy. But keep in mind, it is opinion we are talking about.

Not everyone is printing all their images, and I find cropping to be very useful in many situations, although I try not to.

I think what he means by "smearing the details" is that however you uploaded your image, it appears to have lost a lot of quality from my original image. Maybe it was an export mistake, I'm not sure. It also looks very desaturatrd, in my opinion.

Regardless, thank you for your thoughts.

As a committed home printer I don't see that as a serious argument. I crop to suit the image each and every time I process an image. The problem is not with the printing at all. There is an issue when thinking about the mount and frame size, but get the mount right and most images will fit into a standard frame.
