No more of a flaw than the feathers being ruffled on a bird !

We have to GET PAST the camera-club-criticism that gives images demerits for breaking some 'rule'. Academic art was dead by 1830.
Photography HAS to catch up.

Instead, accept what the photographer did.
Assume that he knew what he was doing,
and let the picture work on you.

Judgementalism is a dead end,
for the viewer,
and the photographer.

A pristine composition is fine for something, chaos suitable for another.
But please let the Photographer make that decision.
