    For a stand-alone photo, i prefer square. On the other hand, say it is used on the cover of a book, rectangular would be better, and you could use the dark part on the bottom for the title or the author’s name…

      Thanks, Ehpem. Lightscatter is where I put my personal favorites. This site is more like the “B” sides.
      I have a folfer called “B sides”. They are photos I didn’t want to post for one reason or another. I might make a page just for them for folks who have some time to waste.

    A riot of ruffles, Ken. A Dahlia I assume (or think) – flowers like this work so well in a square format in my opinion. I went to a Country House garden at the end of a very hectic last week and found, surprisingly, some wonderful late summer Asters etc. I’ve just finished processing them – and I’ve squared off every single shot. I was planning to feature them some time – maybe next week.

      Thanks, Andy. Most commenters agree that they like the square format better but truth be told, I’m still not convinced. The reason is that the dark leaves is a nice anchor for me and sort of grounds the flower a bit. I’ll be looking for your shots in the near future.
