I went to work by train today, so took my camera along in the hope of getting something decent to put up this evening, but hadn't realised that the batteries were flat. So, it's back to raiding the London shots from a couple of weeks ago. As for this one: I've had a go at processing it a few times, but wasn't happy with any of my attempts until I decided to crop it to 4x2, all of which has got me thinking about my attitude to cropping. On the whole, I try to avoid it, at least in any substantial way; mostly because I think in-camera compostion is important. Changes such as this though (which in this instance removed an unremarkable expanse of the car's door) aren't quite the same, and I may well experiment further with different formats.
