the tight crop - and I don't get it. I've fallen into the same trap where I'll critique something and tell the person to tighten the crop to help with the composition. But in doing so, the atmosphere of the photo is completely lost. I feel like a lot of pictures have a lot to explore other than just the intended subject, and atmosphere adds to the subject - for example: A portrait with the intended subject being somebody's eye. If there happens to be a nose, ear, or eyebrow in the picture undoubtedly somebody will respond with ... critiquer: "what's the subject?" photographer: ...."the color of the persons eye" critiquer: "tighten the crop so we can only see the eye because the rest is distracting" I dunno, maybe I'm just exploring thoughts - but I feel like the "tighten the crop" critique is overdone. What do you fine ladies & gents think?
