What is proper in cropping an animal that you don't have the whole body?
if i don't have the whole potato, i take the 'opportunity' to zoom on any part i find interesting or think would make a better photograph. then i hope everyone assumes i did it on purpose.
Nice, nice crop and comp!!! I see you took some off the top as well, good deal
Yes! the second crop is much better, with composition I find it is the eye that is the central focus most of the time so most of the time but not always placing the eye in the upper third of the image usually works well.
I don't think there is a 'proper way' so to speak but generally you try to have the most canvas on the side they are looking to. I would be tempted to take a bit off the left.
REALLY nice shot all around!!!!
