That image assumes you retain the vertical resolution - i.e. you're using a DSLR sensor in 4:3 crop mode.

With a 4:3 sensor - you'd end up chopping the top and the bottom off to maintain width.

This link shows the result of cropping a 4:3 shot various ways, as well as what gets cropped with photos taken with a 3:2 sensor:
