Re: drop the zoom

I didn't expect so much response and misunderstanding to a half-joke so I'll elaborate my point...

There is no rigid definition of any art genre. Even Wikipedia - I could have written or modified the "street photography" entry.

I like the photo and I applaud the photographer for trying. I'm drawn to the expressions on the faces of the couple and I think it could be recomposed to better enhance them. This was a first try and a good one.

My point is that had Goya and Picasso adhered to rigid definitions the world would be without their masterpieces and those great artists that followed them.
