    As Tim pointed out, the bottom line is whether distortion contributes to or detracts from the overall objective of the photo and most often it detracts and should be corrected.

    Unlike painting, photography, literature and some other areas are art expressed within parameters. In literature it is within the bounds of language, structure, and linguistic style. In photography it is within the parameters of technique and the artistic elements of design.
