These photos are the same

I have an A1 poster in a frame on my wall. It is a wedding scene and it is there to show that photos look fine when enlarged to this size. The ability of a photo to be enlarged does not depend solely on the technology of the camera but at least you get a rough idea of the extent to which any photo may be changed. In this example the portrait of the bride should enlarge to A4 as it is a small section of the original photo.

At first glance it is hard to see that these two photos are the same as they look so different. The tiara, necklace, earing become more prominent. As with most aspects of art if you like it that's fine. If you don't then it doesn't matter. Stick with the original.

Happy snapping
