Right but Wrong

There are so many technical things “wrong” with this shot. It was one of the shots on the journey to the final image taken for a client’s website and whilst the final image was closer to the original brief I still love this one. The overly strong contrast, but with a lack of shadow detail, and the simplistic lighting wins me over. Sometimes the imperfections can make an image. Reminds me of a post by Zack Arias and while I didn’t blow this shot on purpose his questions apply here too… “can an imperfect photo be ‘right’?”

What do you think?
