In other words, precise framing in the camera wasn't their greatest priority. Which runs somewhat counter to all those people who obsess about 'getting it right in the camera'. For many great photographers, cropping, either radically or as fine adjustment, has always been part of the creative process. Personally I enjoy it - many photos are improved that way. Plus ... there's nothing sacrosanct about particular aspect ratios. They are just accidents of history.

How much time and concentration do you give to cropping before you post images online or have them printed?

In case of things like wildlife photos, often quite a bit since getting the desired composition done in-camera may not be feasible in the first place anyway.

With less focal - length limited photos, I do usually get pretty close while originally taking the photo, but if I feel later that a different crop is better, I'll adjust things accordingly without worrying about it. And of course in case of fixing rotation or perspective, additional crop is needed anyway.
