I'm not confident about turning a rectangular picture into more of a square one, but I suppose that's what needs to be done.
BTW, I especially enjoyed your collections of macro shots on your smugmug site!

Thank you for taking a look at my Smugmug site - I still don't know how to view comments so I guess you may be one of the few to visit it ! I like having somewhere to store my shots though (I have a Flikr too but I'm not so keen on it although I like the community aspect).

I hope you don't mind I've cropped your shot into an 8x10 - so if you did this you could easily get it printed since that's a standard print size - and you lose none of the top half of the shot.

Oh, sure, that makes sense to crop to 8x10. Much better balance of the dark to the light. Thanks!
