Narrower Vision

If I have a frustration with the public spaces 360-degree panorama project, it’s with the number of images that I have to reject because the composition is just not strong enough. However, many of these contain parts, often 180-degree halves, that could stand pretty well on their own. Two cases in point: I made these two images as development tests, and I like both of them well enough:

However, both have bits that I think would work better on their own:

So the big dilemma is: Do I let myself crop these to get more effective compositions and alter the concept of the project (showing the enveloping nature of the space I’m photographing), or do I stick to my orthodoxy, and deal with the higher number of rejects? Or, can these stand on their own as singles, while the project moves on along its own track?

About Simon

Born in 1968, I was tragically not recognized as a genius until three years later, when I built and flew my first home-made aircraft. Since then, my life has been a string of major successes interspersed with what can only be called triumphs on a galactic scale. I am currently waiting to achieve my next one - should be ready in another 15 minutes or so. Bear with me...
