On 26 August I had posted the full version of this photo on instagram. The whole body of this Transcaucasian Long-nosed Viper (Vipera transcaucasiana) from Georgia was on the photo. In my stories I had posted a crop of the photo and many of you preferred the crop. I prefer not to crop. I want to keep enough pixels for large prints and with excessive cropping noise appears. After cropping this photo, the results weren’t that bad. This photo was made with ISO100 and there were still enough pixels left. I liked the full photo a lot. That was how the photo was intended. However I also like the crop. This crop reveals more of the details of the skin. I like the “miniature blotch pattern”. What do you think of this crop? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ © 2019 Ronald Zimmerman.

I share the same philosophy. I always try to create pics that work as big prints too. But I think for IG a crop sometimes makes sense. Great pic 👍👍👍👍👍

  • @macroflodzl Thanks Florian! Well said. Yes, in some of my last posts I added a crop or a closer photo. On Instagram photos are too small to see tiny details on wider compositions. Adding a crop can compensate for that. 😊

  • @ronaldzimmerman.nl yep, that’s exactly what I meant. Wish there would be Flickr with the interaction of instagram.

  • @macroflodzl Yeah definitely! For social interaction Instagram is amazing! So many people with a shared passion. However the quality and size of the photos are terrible!
