Grass 'smile', cropped to 16x9 AR
Here is a cropped version of my 9/24/19 featured photo, as per the suggestion of several commenters. You can decide for yourself which version you prefer.
I sincerely want to thank all of you who voiced an opinion on this question. For one thing, I always welcome constructive critiques. For another, it's a reminder to each of us that our response to an image may be dependent on how we choose to crop it, among other post-processing decisions. Here's a challenge to each of you. Find an image of your own that could be cropped differently, to give it a different 'feel' or 'message'. Play around with it. Have a little fun.
I won't say which version I prefer. There's no right or wrong in questions of taste. Celebrate variety!
