Week 24 #9 Closely Cropped


I took this photo of this young woman enjoying a cup of coffee this fall in Ybor City, FL.  I entered it into a local photo contest and unfortunately it didn’t place.  I really like the image and after looking at it again several times, I decided to work on it a little more.  I had cropped it a little before entering it but, decided  this time to closely crop it.  I have to say I do like  the feel of the image better, there are very little background distractions and you notice more of the details of  just her. Maybe I will try entering it again.

I have always enjoyed photography, but with encouragemet from family and friends over the past several years I began to realize I really love it! Belonging to this blog and a local digital photo group has challenged me to look at the beauty of the world and to enjoy capturing it with my camera.

  1. Nicely done – less distractions – maybe clone out the one distraction near her nose and you have a winner. Nice capture!

  4. I like the red and mono colouring. Very effective. The frame is in keeping too. It has attitude. I like it.

  5. …………..and I like the hint of bokeh too. Seems in fashion at the moment with portraits!
