aren't they? One thing I've noticed since the megapixels keep going up on my cameras is that I get very lazy about composition, because I have so much leeway when it comes to cropping. That wasn't true when I took this photo with a 2.1mp camera in 2003. 2mp don't leave much room for cropping. I composed this shot in the viewfinder, but have now realized that I don't know why I put the horizon where I did. More than likely, it just felt right. The first photo is as it came out of the camera. The 2nd and 3rd are cropped to put the horizon on either the top or bottom 1/3rd line in an attempt to see whether following the rule of thirds would improve the photo. What do you think? Original from camera - probably tweaked exposure in PP - downsized for viewing but uncropped Cropped on bottom - width untouched Cropped top and sides All the same or is one better than the others?
