    I appreciate the interest in making this photo even better. I can see how different crops have different benefits. Most of my shots tend to be landscape, so that is what I lean to, but sometimes other crops are useful. I haven't done much with square (Instagram) crops - an interesting thought.

    Info about charger

    You'll need to tell us which camera you have, or at least the model of the battery, as different batteries are used across Sony's line and they need different chargers.

    Just for reference, here is the original shot, and that shot hastily cropped portrait-orientation. I tend to agree with Jaf-Photo that this works better in landscape.

    Thanks again. I'm going to go back over the shots I took during the trip and see if any of them could stand recropping.

    I do appreciate your taking the time to offer your advice. I'm pretty good on the technical side, but have a lot to learn on the artistic side. I do try, more and more, to compose my shots well. This one, though, was shot from quite a distance with a 105mm focal length (most I had), so I am depending on the 42.2MP of the camera to give me leeway on final composition. I'm not the sort of photographer who packs multiple lenses. When I've done that in the past I spent too much time switching lenses and would rather have just one general purpose lens that will handle 95% of what I need. Here's the latest attempt. I also brought out the shadows a bit. How does this look?

    Ok, how's this?

    I can't completely crop out the water jets, as one of them is, in part, in line with the kid. Possibly I could get rid of it in Photoshop - I will try that. Thanks for the advice.

    Venezia Pomeriggio

    I love the shots - I was just in Venice a few weeks ago - but something strikes me as "off" with the colors. The first one seems to have a greenish color cast.

    Is this better? If I crop even closer, I cut off too much of the fountain jets and it looks weird.

    Thanks for the comment. I do that on some of my photos, but these are all travel photos and I don't tend to spend a lot of time on any single image. I may experiment with this one and see what I get. I do find cropping more effective on my A7R3 42MP shots than those like this with the RX100ii.

  14. I have traveled with an RX100ii for several years, and while it hasn't been my primary camera, I find it takes excellent photos for something that fits in my pocket. I will take this when I am going somewhere I'd feel too conspicuous with a larger camera. It's also the camera I hand to my wife if she is going off separately and wants to take photos. While I'd appreciate some of the features of the newer model, it's not worth another $1000 to me.
