Is it a sin to crop a photo?
Many photographers consider it a sin to crop photos. But why? You really get some advantages. I discuss some in this article: http:--goo.gl-fNo5GB As you no doubt can guess, this photo is cropped. You can also see the original.

This photo is from the famous Mont Saint Michel in France. It has a long, and in periods very violent history. According to legend, the Arch Angel Michael appeared to the bishop of the nearby town of Avranches. He was named St Aubert. The Arch Angel instructed the St. Aubert to build an oratory on the rock, just off the shores of Normandy. However, the bishop did not act on the instructions, and the Arch Angel got angry and burned a hole in the bishop’s skull.

The skull is on display in Saint-Gervais Basilica in Avranches. It is generally considered more likely, that the hole in the skull stems from trephination, an old medical treatment, that required drilling a hole in the skull, to treat certain diseases in the head. Whether it actually is St. Auberts skull is also unknown.

But St Aubert got the message, and had built an oratory in 709.
