    I know I missed the focus on this one (actually I think it's my glass but) and it's grainy as hell...but her mom likes them and pics of her are hard to get. She won't sit down for a portrait and even if she does she goes to extra leingths to make it bad. but any who..... I need a little help on a crop, wich one looks best?

    Pretty simple same aspect ratio horizontal vs vertical

    Now, Because this lens is so difficult to focus I shot it at f/22 and I was working with some lousy natural lighting conditions so I was usnig 800 film so....

    I also prefer the vertical crops. What gets left out isn't crucial to the shots, and lets one concentrate on the main subject - the girl.

    Thanks, I took the shot because I knew it would be worth wile despite the fact I knew it would have been better with a different lens. I did not have time to take my ten dallar wonder off for something better and get closer.

    Thank you. I too had been leaning towards the verts but I was a bit worried the grain increase from the enlargement with the crop would take away from her too much in the last one (Also Visable in the horizontal of the first).
