The idea of very simple images has always attracted me. But , sometimes I'm not sure if I'm making a simple image or just a truncated frame that possibly should include more. Is there a way to know for sure?


You need to reflect on the perception itself. Does the image faithfully form the equivelent of what you saw? That's the only test that matters. If you've shot only part of the perception because you thought that would make a better image, you are not forming a faithful equivelant.
