Nice, Tim! Great find.
Thanks Rawls! This was one of the vehicles parked down the road from Armondos Auto Center. You never know what you’ll find.
You’re welcome! I think you have another cool photo inside this – just the windshield with the streaks, bible and rosary. Great moody light and color.
Yes, I agree. Thank you for the insight. Cropping is always easier with another pair of eyes.
Very interesting catch here..something you don’t see in a car often.
Yes, or/and heavenly insurance.
Great subject….in fact pretty unique.! Love the colours and textures as well.
John, thank you. I keep reminding myself to look more closely. In the case the result was bit surprising and pleasant.
Agreed, get in close, crop out the distractions! Knowing me, I wouldn’t have noticed the good book!
We do surprise ourselves.
Cropping remains a challenge for me. Other eyes always help. Sometimes you can get two or three cropped images out of a single taken image.
Yes, it’s all down to improving the picture divisions and balancing the spaces, tones and colour.
One judge said that we need ask ourselves if the areas that can be cropped add to or subtract from the picture. If they don’t add to it, crop it away.
True, but cropping too tightly can be negative, the subject does need space to breathe!
I used to crop tightly in the camera but began to realize that it left me little room to adjust for perspective and corrections. Now I have to tell myself to back away a bit.
Since I use Lightroom CC, I’m no longer concerned as much with cropping and damage to the image. Since Lightroom is not destructive, I can experiment with cropping. It is one of the reasons I’ve grown fond of Lightroom.
Tommy, thank you.
