Make Your Subject Stand Out

When I am looking through the viewfinder (even when I am being attacked by a deadly animal) I am always thinking about the end result. I ask myself, "How can the image be enhanced in the digital darkroom?"

One idea is to make the subject stand out in the scene. Options include:
• Darkening the area around the subject;
• Sharpening the subject and blurring the background;
• Cropping the image.
