The Importance of Cropping

 Before
After

While out for lunch in Santa Monica with my mother, birds kept jumping up on the chairs and tables to eat customers’ leftovers or hoping for free handouts. The patio of the Shutter’s Restaurant has several canopy coverings with light coming through the slits between each canopy. This bird stood right in the spotlight of one of the openings, and I was ready. In the moment, there wasn’t time to frame the image with much care. It was later that I cropped and framed the photo just as I wish I had done in the moment.
