I am relatively new to this and thus still learning about composition and capturing the moment.

I took some family photos at the weekend, the kit does not really matter, but it was with a d3100 and Nikon 18-55VR & Sigma 70-300 (non OS)

I am very happy with the image quality and the compositions I captured, but while editing, I found that some compositions would be improved if I cropped.

The photos are only going to be printed 6x4 or 7x5, but is there a limit to how much I can crop, does lightroom tell me how many pixels I am loosing?

That being said I guess it is better to do it this way rather than composing to tightly and then not being able to get it back?

It funny how sometimes you ask a question and then 5 minutes later you find something on the subject. Well I have just seen Gregs video on cropping and am now less concerned about doing it. Great video.
