Saving Private shultz

By KevSB
Refilling my gallery with previously not seen pictures on here, wanting move forward in time from 1815 and my ww2 season about to start, We have an injured tank crewman being helped into cover. I deliberately cropped this at an angle, as I find I have a tendency to compose by the rules of composition and wanted to try different ways of framing giving more drama.

angles like this are usually seen on covers of car/bike magazines, good to see the technique working well on something less obvious Smile

Thanks All, when I was cropping this I found myself wanting to crop it in perfect rectangle format with level horizons, the more I see this now it does add an extra depth to the picture. just goes to show that we need to change how we do things sometime.

Feels very well Kevin. I like the use of the diagonal angle.
