    Different cropping

    Hi Muhammad,
    I really like the first shot. However, I would have cropped it a bit differently. I hope you don't mind that I took the liberty of cropping this image somewhat closer. This crop eliminates the road and bus at the top left and seems to concentrate on the curving line of tea pickers. What do you think?

    thanks for comment richard,
    when you started to crop this picture, i think it will eliminate the effect of the rule of third, anyway, you have been in the photography world for 50 years, you've experienced.
    cheers!

    Re: Different cropping

    It's an interesting shot giving an insight into life in your country. I would have taken out the road and truck too (also there's part of a tree trunk) and I started photography seriously just two and a half years ago. With them gone it looks like it could be out in the countryside rather than 'at the side of the road' almost downtown - Thirds is a good guidance but no prof. photographer would say that the rule should never be broken , most times it works well but there are occasions when it should be abandoned.
