I think it should be cropped vertically from the elbows up.

Thanks for the comment Walter, I think I wanted to leave more in the background to show that it was taken in a dimly lit bar.

While the girls seems to be vertical that post on the left is on a pretty big angle. As for cropping the girls, there is some rule or law that says you shouldnt cut off someone's feet. Here is a good post by someone showing where to crop or not crop someone. http://lifehacker.com/5991733/avoid-...ng-cheat-sheet.

@ Bynx Yes posted with the knowledge that those were two possible mistakes, could have been better.

post straightened but feet still cut off

it's a nice photo for souvenir
it's hard to comment or edit a shot like this

on one side there are the technical errors like the feet, the space above the head, the fact that the girls are centered

on the other hand it's kind of ok cause it's just a snap photo. just for remembering the moment in the future

@D3v1l Quite right it's just a snapshot With little technical merit, that's the reason I posted it in the critics forum so that others could pick up on the mistakes.

G'day all

Well - it is an interesting one to consider

Does one keep all the girls & the location? - does one concentrate on the girls? - etc

I think you have 3 choices

Red line - yellow line - or my 100% the yellow dotted line



Back you you for comment
