but i digress. and look! a new record for my attention span; i've digressed in the first sentence.
it occurred to me today how cropping a photo can make it go from 'eh', to 'eeeeee gods! what photographic genius took this miraculous snippit of nature?!'
and i do realize that this isn't new to anyone else. nor will it cure the world's ills and set Wall Street back on its merry little cash-making way, but it was just one of those things that the more i thought of it, the more i realized what a difference it can make.
let me demonstrate.
now you can see how evilly his eyes gleam. and how i SO needed to pick up the extension cord from the floor.
let's try another example, shall we? roadside daisies before...and - through the miracle of the crop tool...why look! a bouquet of daisies fit enough to grace a table.
just one more to bore you with. but it never ceases to amaze me how a photo, like this of my niece, while still good....can, with a little time and care, be transformed into something that just takes my breath away.
and hopefully, that of the judges in this year's OC Fair.
yes - with just a little care and experimentation, kids, you too can take photos to another level. amaze your friends! confound your enemies!
just don't expect it to work miracles for things like this:after all, i am NOT a miracle worker.
