I didn't read he rules first, so here is one and the other will be on a separate thread. A shot taken in Switzerland with the Pentax DL with the DA 50-200 lens.

Nice fall shot, maybe a little too centered but overall good shot.

I'm curious how you could crop this to make it less centered but still keep the feel of the original, which I really like. I'm another who could sit on the hillside and look down on that scene for hours.

I would have crop out some of the foreground, not centering the subject is something that has been pounded into me from every photo class I have every taken.

Please keep in mind that statements made by me are just my opinion and may not be the same as the rest of the photographic world. :?

Ah, ha - I see what you mean. I was looking at it from cropping left or right and thought either side would cause the picture to lose too much of what makes it such a wonderful picture. Cropping some of the foreground, which I didn't even think about, makes sense. Thanks for clarifying your point.

I know what you mean about the subject being in the center. Here is the original and then one cropped a bit more like you suggested. As you can see there was a fenced in yard that I thought was a bit distracting.






and finally one more that is cropped left and low.

Just my opinion, but I like the second one best - Calicajun's suggestion for cropping looks good to me. Your cloning is awesome!
