How to crop it?

Good day,

Better yet, how to post-process it?






Any suggestions are welcomed.

Thank you!

P.S. Why can' t I resize the pictures in this message? It is annoying.

If the second, large version is the uncropped photo, I'd say leave it uncropped.

Good day,

Thank you all for the quick replies.

The original one was this one.
The fist two pictures were edited in Picasa.
The third one, in PS CS6

OK if that's the original, up at the very top right is this box. Crop it just barely enough to take that box out, in width, but don't take out any height. I like the B&W conversion used in the bottom shot of your original post. But I like it with just that bit of sky as cropped in the top shot and the big one, but the box on the right needs to go I think. Without that small bit of sky the dark just over runs everything.

That looks good. The only thing I don't like is that rectangular thing growing out of his head. It keeps making me look for the bottom of a guitar case...even though I know it's part of the bridge...if he had been a step further along...

Good day,

I think he would have been off the bridge. It' s a walking platform over the train rails. I would have had to have at least 6 feet and 20" to take the picture at a few steps lower (to be further) . Still, I think it' s a decent shot- not great by any means but hey still learning.

Thank you all for the suggestions!

Crop and Clone

Removing or cloning out the distraction on the upper right (I cropped) and cloning out the piece of fence makes a nice image overall. Keep the people out of focus in the background. It let's the eye go deep into the image without being satisfied, forcing the viewer back out to the main subject.

Just a little clean up. Grab shots need this as you do not have the time to compose as you normally would.

urssu - Umm, I think it's at least decent, as is...the box thing bugs me, but the shot is still a good one...definitely decent at least.
