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). :|
Thanks Chuck. I felt the same, Frank’s is a better portrait (of course Frank’s portraits are always better than mine :) ) but part of my affection for the scene was the grungy fan and canvas top to the outdoor bar that gave it that Bogart/Hemingway feel.
