Not many words in this blog but, now and then, a few of my photographs--
Here are examples of what you get when you don't edit photographs before showing them off. My second one has a mysterious and distracting object right in the foreground. Cropping would have taken care of that problem. In the third photo my horizon line (often a problem for me) is slightly askew. Custom rotating of a degree or two (followed by a minor necessary crop) would have been the answer here. I'm leaving these as they are because (1) I'm busy preparing for an author event at Dog Ears Books and (2) they will serve as warning and object lesson to other amateur photographers.
