The colors really pop, and it's immediately apparent what the subject is. I feel it would easily accept a much tighter crop, eliminating the big space on the bottom side. Same with that length of stem at the top...it doesn't add anything and detracts somewhat from the viewing focus, leading my eyes up and away from the beautiful ladybug. The only other comment is that the second one has its back to us, so I feel an incongruity in including it. I would have liked to see your other angles and perspectives from this wonderful combination of bug and flower.   Posted: 08/02/2020 23:26:22

Hi Carol. Thank you for your valuable comments. I am not a big fan of tight crops. However, done a crop and attached. Is that the crop you mentioned.   Posted: 08/03/2020 12:21:20

I do like this crop better. I was actually thinking that maybe the top ladybug would be the focus and crop just above the second ladybug? And that would mean leaving more space above the upper ladybug? Just a thought.   Posted: 08/03/2020 15:11:06
