Karen S suggested that I crop one of my cactus photos from the Friday Assignment, Close to Home.  I thought her suggestion good and that it would be easy to do. Ha!  I cropped about ten ways before settling on this one.  I do think this crop greatly improves the photo.

Is this what you had in mind, Karen S?

  1. Really good idea on the crop. It now leads the eye into the image and the thorns. Very good.

  2. I love the crop and how it slowly gets more clear as it reaches the top! Brilliant suggestion Karen – and what a unique and gorgeous image Judy!

  3. Thanks, Karen! I love your idea… and will add that to my project list! Wow… I did not realize how consuming this hobby would be, but I love it!

  4. Yes! That’s exactly what I was envisioning – I really love how you cropped it. The soft edges created by the shallow depth of field really focus your attention to the crown of the catcus and those spikey growths look like little starbursts. I think this with close cropped shots of a couple of your other catus images would make a nice collage too. You’ve got so many fun opportunities with these cactus shots.
