Normally (about 99.8% of the time) I never crop a photo. It's a pet peeve of mine, that I try to get it right in camera, but there are times when cropping is justified. In this particular case, it was worth it to crop last weeks photo to share with you what I could see in the original photo, at it's original size. The detail of the hairs/fibers from the Q-tips themselves. I'm still not convinced that this is as good as the original size photo, but it's pretty close. What are your thoughts? Do you liked the cropped version or last weeks photo of the whole scene better?
I like this! Cropped or not....very interesting photo to say the least.
Your work is very good, Ken!

It actually seems like it could be a Van Gogh painting... the stray pieces of cotton remind me of Starry Night for some odd reason.
It took me a few minutes of staring at it to really see that it was q-tips.
