Hi,

I was just wondering if someone could give me some advice on how to crop this photo (go to link down the bottom). I'm not sure whether to leave it as it is or crop it one way or another. I know with animals and people it's a good thing to make sure they have space to "look into". I hope that makes sense. I'm not sure what to do with this particular photo though, because he is looking back over his shoulder.

Thanks.

Thanks for letting me know... I can't figure out why that wouldn't work- but could see you were right when I viewed it from another pc. After a couple of tries, hopefully it works now!... Re-edit: I can't figure out what the heck is going on... I've tried reattaching the pic on my site and even inserting the pic. I'm doing it exactly the same way I've done it before. :( Any suggestions?

Make a copy reducing it to 800 px on the longest side and no more than 100KB in file size and attach it here. We can collectively try to crop off of that one even though we won't have the resolution of the original.


My life is like one big RAW file....way too much post processing needed.

Do you need to keep the original aspect ratio? That is, does it need to stay at 3:2 or 4:5 or whatever it is?

No I don't think so. I'm trying to finally get off my backside and set up a website of my work. I think I read somewhere that unless you're trying to make images standard sizes, then it's ok to crop to the image's best composition... so there's nothing stopping you from making an image a square, if it works. (not that I'd necessarily do that with this one) Dunno what the thoughts would be in here and if that's even "correct". The other issue that's crossed my mind is for simplicity and consistency, do I keep all of my images the same aspect ratio?

Thanks for the suggestion too Elie.
