    If you've been to the April Theme thread then you may have seen this one already. The subject was one I had to capture the moment I saw her.. Unfortunately she moved her hand just before I shot the picture and before I could take another someone else sat at the other end of the bench and spoiled the composition...

    Question is do I stick with the full size original?...

    This is a bit of a new toy thread too since this is the first posted image from my newly acquired D7000 coupled with a very much less new 35-70mm f3.3-4.5 AI zoom...

    Crop is doing what you want. In to out cropping. You only get the point of the shot in close.

    Yes the crop is definitely better Sid. Personally, I'd have been tempted to almost dehumanise it and go on really close and just get enough of the coloured items to imply what's there whilst focusing on the colour.

    Thanks folks.

    Initially I thought the background context was important but when doing the PP I started to wonder. The background has been darkened down a little in the full version but I wasn't sure whether it helped or intruded too much.

    Crop it is then...:)
