Photo Editing for Print Vs. Digital

I am often asked about the difference between photo editing for print and digital, and this past week's New York Fashion Week coverage by Landon Nordeman provides an incisive example.  I suggested this image to photo director Jody Quon to tease the fashion content in the Table of Contents.  Part of its magnetism is its ethereal, delicate quality -- something that translates better in the large, slow-turning format of print.  I felt the photo, while stunning, was too delicate for web, so it was not included with the rest of the Delpozo show coverage online.  However, it is perfectly suited to the magazine.

 The original photo -- arresting, but much more engaging in a print format.
