Creative Crop

This week's theme at I ♥ Faces is "Creative Crop". I tried very hard to take a picture that wouldn't require much cropping, but would still have some compositional interest. I took a close of up of my little boy and angled it into a perspective that was pleasing to my eye. When I got home and looked at the picture, there was an annoying pole going up the side of his cheek... ugh. So, needless to say, I had to crop further. I am posting the original and the cropped and edited version. If you would like to participate in the competition or just see some creative cropping, head on over to I ♥ Faces and check it out for yourself!

  2. So great! I love it! I love the one of your hubby's eyes too! I LOVE the way it turned out and the great color, but I couldn't leave a comment, it kept kicking me out, so I am leaving it here. ;)
