The one good thing about taking pictures with a very good digital SLR is that you can often cut and paste the photo to focus on different parts of the original. The picture below was taken at Longwood Gardens – I was very happy with the overall composition (although it probably could be centered more) – I loved the colors and the fact that I was able to take the picture not long after the flower had been watered and therefore was able to capture raindrops.
As I looked at the picture on Photoshop I zoomed on the water drops. As I viewed the picture I realized that if I was to crop the photo, I’d have a really nice picture. I was able to make the droplets a feature and with a little manipulation was able to get the colors to be more subtle.
Using the method I am often able to get 2 or more decent images as well as the original.
