Montego Bay is a place of great contrasts, yet little differences.

Very inviting !!! Are those going to be drinks for you? Even though I like your version, I like Frank's cropped version much better.

Thanks, looks good, and more intimate.

My problem? I was enamoured of the grungy fan.

The place looked like somewhere Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall would hang out.

Makes me thirsty. I prefer Frank's but I would have shot it the way you did. Kitchen sink. Matt

Thanks Matt. I’m too far into kitchen sink to see my way out.

(And yes, Frank’s version is a better image)

I like both shots and understand including the fan. But most of all I want one of those drinks.

Min, I'd have shot and presented it exactly as you did. I guess I'm a kitchen sinker too, and it was the fan that I hated to see cropped out. Now, that said, had I never seen the original crop I'd never have missed the fan and given all kudos to Frank's, so there y'go. I'm conflicted. I was trained to crop in camera, up to a point, because (ironically) we were also trained to open out a little, include a little more that we could always crop out (and no, they couldn't make up their minds). :|

(I prefer to present pictures in albums because I can put them in specific order.)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|
