Close Cropping

I have come across a photographer called Neil Downie. He won a competition at the end of 2010 for his photgraphy across Vietnam and the picture below is his winning photograph.
In this photo, by cropping the photo across, he has given the impression of width. The boats in the photo are the darkest parts, therefore the eye is immediately drawn to them before you notice the background. Unfortunately, I was unable to find a lot of Neil downie's work.

In the same competition, Capt, Jack Leggett came third with this photograph. By using a pillar crop, he shows the height of the columns and the depth of the corridor, giving a completely different aspect to the image above.
