SECTION – segment, part, component, or in terms of photography a crop of a larger view. Have you ever taken a photo of something and then cropped it to add interest, to improve composition or to zoom in on something? I do it often. For this challenge I am showing a cropped view of Rovinj, coastal town in Istria.

  1. I crop all the time, partly because I can never see what I’m photographing in my very scatched screen. But never with results like this. You’ve got the silky shimmer of the sea, the brickwork, the blue-green window frames, the perfectly placed spire, those wonderful oblongs of orange and red, and then the absolute forest of connectivity devices. So much glorious detail. Enjoy your unconnected days!

  4. About a third of the way across from the left there’s a browny red building. I’ve seen a close up of that little ‘street’ on the water’s edge. A good friend was there some years ago. I’ve always wanted to visit. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ Lovely, atmospheric shot, Paula. Enjoy your hard earned days off. I shall be in Bristol, celebrating an 80th with a different and very lovable friend.

  6. Marvellous! I confess to cropping from time to time to improve the composition if I have had to get more in shot than I wanted… Mine will appear later

    • Pressed send again too fast. get a grip Ark…
      What made me smile about your shot is the incongruity of all the old buildings, some in urgent need of repair by the look of it, and the modern (ish) satellite dishes dotted all over them!
      You can see similar scenarios over here. Drive through any run-down area and you are bound to see a satellite dish on the roof and maybe a brand new Beemer or SUV parked outside.
      People’s priorities often baffle me.

  14. Great history in horizontal layers, the ancient stones (thought they may be newly place there) of the breakwater, the recently renovated lower storey, the older more dilapidated upper storeys, they the crowded satellite dishes and aerials of the 21st century, finally the solitary medieval tower.
