All of us on the course have about 10-20 versions of this shot. Many of them look almost the same, but the people are in a slightly different position. So why is that important? Why take another one the same with the people in a slightly different position? I took one where three young women were right at the front of the frame, lit up by the light from outside the tunnel. The image suddenly became about them, rather than about the scene in general. Now if they were my best friends, maybe that would have been a great photo, but, to me, the scene and the crowd are more important than three specific people I’ve never met and probably never will.
