Blast from the Past: Cartier-Bresson Flickr Bike picture revisited

You may recall about two years ago someone intentionally posted a Cartier-Bresson photograph in a critique pool at Flickr, and watched as the critiques kept piling up. Then they revealed it was a Cartier-Bresson and the debates *cough* drama raged on.

Fast-forward to today, this situation gets revisited at Reddit with a fresh wave of comments on the whole situation (234 new comments). This also re-invigorated the original discussion at Flickr (341 total comments there).

The whole discussion has sparked some interesting discussions among the many many comments on topics such as art, photography, critiques, and "critiquers" (ok, critics) :)

PS> Apparently I'm not the only one who has "renamed" him Benson ;-)
