    Hi all,

    Went to the animal sanctuary yesterday to volunteer. Trying to figure out what crop I like the most - trying to create a portrait type shot! Any other suggestions are welcome as well.

    Here are the crops vs originals:

    The first but because you're trying to emphasize the symmetry in the form, I would have placed it more in the center and removed some of that space on the left.

    I tried out a b&w version and I'm really digging it! Makes the back white road less distracting and I love the focus on the details ...

    #1 and color. I'd also bring down the highlights (particularly in the breast area) and maybe add a tinge of vignette.
