    That's a wonderful capture and conversion.

    What do you think about a fairly hefty crop at each side to focus attention exclusively on the children and get rid of things like railings, bicycles and posts? Does it also need just a small clockwise rotation?

    Donald, I think you are correct it does need a slight rotation. I actually liked the bike but didn't like the garbage can... like this?

    Well, how about a crop at the left to just on the right hand side of the branches of that tree that is to the right of the garbage can ... if you're still with me. That puts the children into the left hand side of the frame with the bike balancing it up on the right hand side.

    Hope you don't mind me making these suggestions. It's just that I feel there is a superb image in here.

    I'm following you but I'm getting confused with the cropping. I kinda wanted to make sure that the lines of the path kind of lead to the children. I tried putting the children to the left but it is not doing it for me. If you would like the crop the image feel free to give it a shot I would like to see how you would do it. -mike

    Keeping the thought that you wanted to keep the bike.....best I could come up with. But truth be told I like the second posted but go one further and square crop it. Just the children and water. Less is more here I think.

    An amazing shot, Michael.
    First time I looked at it, even I thought 'a crop here & there, and that would improve the shot greatly'
    But now having looked at the crops I feel the one you posted at first is the best one. The trees frame the shot well & the bicycle really adds to the scene.
    Just my 2 cents.

    Thank you Sahil! I guess it can just be a matter of taste in some instances but its nice to have several opinions.
