I need to learn to cut mattes and frame

One of the things about this blog theme is the banner image at the top of thepage.  Sometimes it’s tough to find a shot that looks good in the long proportions needed. 

Looking through other pictures I realized that using standard cropping ratios like 4×6 and 8×10 just didn’t do justice to some shots.  Some were left with acres of empty space, too much of a crop and some just didn’t feel right until I went to freehand and cropped the way I wanted them. 

I decided to try the banner format on some of them.  These weren’t intended to be panoramas but, they just turned out that way.

About birds n' bugs

Retired, living in SW Florida and spending my time at nature photography in my local area. I volunteer with a couple of local organizations to help my adopted home town. Travelling is now by airplane and car instead of a sailboat but happy anyway.
