Crop this!

Here's one way I might do it.

Your cropped version is larger than what we can do with the original.

A few times I've wondered it it might be good, in this topic, to start with a larger image...and more data. I wanted to play with a more vertical shot, but anything I did still meant a too small egret.

Here's something, though...

I would be all for posting bigger file sizes, if only to make the
pictures look better. I suppose it has to with server space or some
other mundane thing?

Yeah.

But for this topic, it seems to make sense to post larger images.

What made it for me in the original were the submerged trees and stumps. Cropping too tightly takes away from the ambiance of the final result. Here's what I came up with, with a little Curves adjustment in Photoshop too:

I like seeing the water, too. And the curve of the snag behind the
bird.

I think you're right, Rich. The background is the environment and
needs to be emphasized.

The curve looks good. All I did to the original was an exposure
adjustment to the raw file.

It would look pretty good as an oversized postage stamp, even at this tiny size. MIGHT be able to resize upwards, and work on some effects.

Hmmm. I should have darkened the legs some.

It's a gorgeous image of an egret.

This was a fun topic. Hope people post some more pictures.

I don't really expect you to continue making your own crops in this
case, unless you see something interesting. It's just that I had more or
less given up the picture when I suddenly got the idea of drastic
cropping. Not that the result will winn me prizes, but I got fascinated
enough.

Ah, didn't think of focusing on the two people. Good excercise, this.

Going back to 2003 postings (not that far up, either!) it was suggested that larger pics be used here, the better to crop oddments.

Nice one Marlise!

Good point, for the future...
