Each of these was originally shot in landscape, then cropped to vertical orientation. In each case the additional image detail was extraneous and detracted from the focal point of the shot. Why I ever considered shooting a vertical guy like this African crane in landscape I'll never know, but he cropped nicely.

(Both of these shots from a recent trip to the Little Rock Zoo.)

It was the first hot sunny day of the summer, and these two lionesses were enjoying rolling in the grass and decided to help each other out with grooming.

lol....I went back to the unprocessed files from that day shooting at the zoo and examined the three or four shots I had taken of the crane and found one I had overlooked before because it was a little dark. It, however, was much sharper, and the levels problem was one that was easily cured with a simple adjustment.

Great shot of the big cats. These are very clean looking lions.
