Before and After Slider: Which looks better?

March 13, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

While I was at the beach this morning I took a quick photo with my iPhone 5S.  I saw a young girl flying a kite as she ran across the shoreline.  What a great shot I thought.  However, after I got back home I thought I would play a little bit with it and 'erased' all of the people that were in the shot.  It was such a spontaneous photo, but I thought compositionally that it would look so much better if the other people were not in the shot and all you could see was the little girl flying her kite.  

The position of the little girl and the height of the kite hits the "Rules of Third" mark exactly.  How cool is that?

What's your opinion on this - better BEFORE or AFTER?

A HUGE thank you to Bertrand Hui Photography for his guidance in showing me how to use the BEFORE and AFTER slider. THANK YOU!

Just move the red slider back and forth - cool isn't it?
