….or does it?


I posted on Twitter the question of “Is the bit on the right distracting?”

I was half expecting the responses to be a bit like those if you ask “Does my bum look big in this?”  (NB: Men, the correct answer is “No”), but actually on this occasion I got a differing response – “Yes” – it was distracting.  So I cropped the image down.  That said I did lose the interesting vein of bluey greeness.

Then the following day I got different responses from friends in the Twittersphere that made me challenge my original thinking about the necessity for a crop – there was more to explore in the original image (and I would agree).  So I’m left with two equally compelling images, that said I feel I am now coming full circle and if I had to choose I would probably choose #1


What do you think and why?
