Great holmertz 2020-09-19 0:36

Hello Craig,
I saw Varanasi on my first tour of India in 1972. I wasn't too keen on Delhi and Agra, despite the many fabulous places to see, but I just had to see Varanasi, and I was really happy I went there. It's one of the most fascinating cities in the world, as you know, and in these digital days one could take an endless number of photos. I probably took less than 100. Both these photos are great, but I'm not sure if I agree with your choice of main upload. This one is very typical of what you can find in the streets, but the WS is really a better composition, with the wall painting as the cream on the cake. It is a "neater" composition with fewer disturbing details.
Best wishes,

Default To holmertz: WS photo

Hi Gert
you're not the only one to prefer the WS photo - sometimes that happens and that's totally ok

I still prefer the main upload, for 2 reasons. We clearly see the shaving of the head and blade, and in the WS the shaving of the head activity isn't even happening, and the men are looking off to the side somewhat disengaged. Just because the WS photo has that large blue painting on the wall isn't enough for me to make it better. But hey...its all subjective.

thanks again
