It’s sometimes hard to care about tiny details in photographs. And even harder when it’s other people’s images.
So if you’ve not already lost the will to read further – here’s a questions I’ve been grappling with.
Last week in Cannes I spotted this – essentially a pattern picture which looked interesting with the traditional white tents of the Cannes Festival framing some boats.
What I didn’t spot however was the helicopter hovering just in shot near the tip of the left hand tent.
So – does this spoil the image? Here it is with the offending machine removed.
I can’t make up my mind – the revised version seems “neater” (in a symmetrical sense) but the original is more “edgy” and perhaps therefore more interesting?
It will of course be hard for any of you to care – but nevertheless I’d welcome any views. Gary
