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.
