What is interesting to note is the obvious difference in post processing. After sampling a range of 50 people, it turned out to be split right in the middle in terms of what people preferred. It goes to show that when two people work on the same image from, the end result is almost guaranteed to never be the same at all.
So even though you may think there is a right and wrong for retouching, even with all the rules out there, it’s still an artform that is left to the viewer to decide what is good or bad or what is right and wrong.
Readers, what do you feel is the better cover? Do not let the names distract you, go by just the image and leave your comments below. I’d love to hear your thoughts!
