**SPECIAL POST FOR A CLIENT**
Hi Maria! I worked on image #1836 to the aspect ratio of 8×10, the size you wanted me to print. I also know you wanted the image cropped in, so it would highlight the girls more.
For comparison, I’ve included the original, the version you asked for, and an alternative suggestion….
THE ORIGINAL IMAGE
SAME IMAGE, BUT CROPPED IN & GIVEN SOME “OOMPH”
MY ALTERNATE SUGGESTION: THE SAME IMAGE IN LANDSCAPE-ORIENTATION (HORIZONTAL) & GIVEN SOME “OOMPH”
I actually like both variations. The vertical one shows more of the woodsy background, which is very nice. And the horizontal one enlarges the girls even more, which you said was something you liked.
Let me know what you think! You can’t go wrong with either. I think the image definitely looks great cropped in. And the other adjustments (what I call “oomph-ing”) gives the photo more warmth and depth.
FYI: For all prints ordered through me, I will spend time “oomph-ifying” each image to make sure they look their absolute best!
