So, as usual, I'll be going to the Long Beach Grand Prix, and I though I'd take something for race drivers to sign. I did that last year and Timo Bernhard and Romain Dumas were impressed by what they saw. (or at least that's what they told me, hehe)

So. This year, I want to get Sam Hübinette, the Crazy Swede, to sign my picture. (if I can track him down)

The problem is, the picture I took, I think looks great, except the composition is a bit boring. So I decided to crop the pic, but I don't know how to make it look interesting. So. I'll put up some examples, and I'd be grateful if you can offer me some tips.

There's another thing. Picture sizes. I took this pic with my old 4.0megapixel handheld, and photoshop tells me that it's equivalent to about 10x7.5. Is that accurate? Does that mean you could probably see all the blemishes on the pic on an 8 x 10?


Which combination of cropping and color?

G4.... generally I'm not an angle fan, but that combo looks the best IMHO

Can't decide on cropping but 1 for the color.
