I've read some of the Tutorials here and how to use the rule of thirds, but still have problems how to Frame my photos in the first place or Crop them afterward. For me shooting the photographs is a lot of fun, but on the screen they do not look nice. Usually I try cropping the photo until the cropped one looks better than the original. And it rarely does . Reading books doesn't help, I simply don't have the "eye" for the right Crop. Unfortunately, I do know when something doesn't look good, as it is with most of my photos.
The same goes for post editing, Colors, Contrast, possible B&W variant, it's a big mystery for me.
On my Notebook I do have some free Editing Software (Microsoft Office Picture Manager, FastStone Image Viewer, Picasa) and try to use it with some success.
This is one of the pics where I just couldn't decide what to Crop away. Was trying to make it B&W, rotate it and Crop. At the end I gave up.
Any suggestions what could be done ?
