Would you keep this photo?

by Todd Smith on December 24, 2008

Here’s a question that comes up for me almost every day: should I keep a photo or chuck it? The good old process of editing…

In this particular shot, from last week’s photo shoot at Lafayette French Pastry, the camera shutter speed was a bit slower than I wanted and it shows some motion blur. Part of me wants to throw it out, but there’s also a part of me that really likes it. It shows the action behind the scenes in the bakery.

My ten-year old friend, Logan, says I should keep it with the caption, “Ghost Making Danishes.” What do you think? Was this a happy accident or one for the bin?

Here’s another thought. Maybe it would look better in black and white… here’s the B&W version. What’s your take?

If you do vote to keep it, how would you use it? greeting card? print for a kitchen or dining room? Tell me your thoughts.
