This photo captured a visual order that was intrinsic to the scene and the moment, a balance between colors and forms. The photographer didn't force this frame with a wide lens or unusual perspective, he simply recognized it in the world; people who talk about photography sometimes call this "good seeing." How much does it matter, if at all?
