I have been playing around with cropping lately and practicing techniques to turn mediocre pictures into great pictures.
This elephant photo in its original form is not a great composition. I was concentrating on the baby elephant hoping he would do something fun and cute and I didnt really pay attention to the very touching interaction between the large female and the juvenile elephant.
Some lighting and color correction and a crop with a vignette all completed in Lightroom gives me a very nice portrait with lots of warm fuzzy motherly vib.
Don’t disregard a photo before examining it closely for details and emotions you did not know were in there.
