Default Re: cropped heads

hi Luko,
talking about portraits I meant close portraits, not environmental portraits, portraits where we see only a face, portraits without "the storyboard"...
and Martin Parr was not a good example... there are many other photographers making portrais with plenty of space around the face - and Steve McCurry is the easiest example - see here. and his portraits are mostly vertical.
Michael made a good point about publishing portraits in magazines, where text is going to be added on the photo... but is it the olny reason? and i know cropped heads bother many people, maybe it bothered me before too, but now i like this kind of portraits a lot.
anyway.. so, to crop or not to crop? ;)
