  1. Since the symbolic resonance of the physical position with the sword is more effective than the woman’s expression (which doesn’t properly display resolve or determination) I saw no point in the first crop at all.

    On the other hand, the second crop makes the pose look even more like a textual illustration in the style of the old Howard Pyle books, so I liked it better than the original – where her elbows are unnaturally in balance, diminishing the kinetic energy of the pose.

    (I posted about Au hasard Balthazar and commercial-art Jesus lately.)
