In a perfect world every picture we take would have been framed, exposed and focused just right and without any flaw. But in reality some (if not most) pictures need a bit (if not a lot) of post-processing improvement work.
One of the more common fixes I often have to execute is cropping my images. I guess it is an obvious issue in street photography when quite often there’s no time to control all variables.
This is an example of an image I chose to crop as well as convert the original color to black & white which is often just a matter of taste.
And in case you were wondering, there are of course many ways to convert color images to black & white, but I usually choose to do it during scanning, meaning I scan the color negatives under black & white settings.
