What would Leonardo think?

I admit to manipulating photographs. I do it to enhance them but I haven't done anything to this photo except crop it and the result is on the right. I think this improves the photo because there is no distraction from the paintings that are partially visible.

If you think about the control of the image for paintings then the power lies with the artist. You may get artists who do include warts and all or you may find artists who manipulate the image. Who would have thought that the Mona Lisa was drinking a cup of coffee? I think Leonardo would approve.

Happy snapping
