One of the advantages of digital photograph is the ability to easily crop an image in processing software such as Adobe Photoshop.

But cropping does more than just remove such extraneous and unwanted elements as utility poles and wires.

The character of an image can change if you crop it more closely.

Here is an example of that from Bob Farkas. The location is the former Baltimore & Ohio yard in Willard, Ohio.

It’s March 13, 1982, and the B&O is part of the Chessie System.

The top image shows more of the train’s consist and the yard. But the bottom image gives more detail of the locomotive, caboose and boxcar.

You make the call on which image you prefer.
