Compare and Contrast: Adam Eaton vs. Robin Hood


Partial to embiggening? Try clicking, then.

The image on the left — which, it must be said, has been painstakingly assembled by the author via a freeware graphics editor from the relevant Twitter page — is of Diamondbacks outfielder Adam Eaton and his Intended astride a pair of horses. The image on the right is of Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett — also totally riding horses — in the roles of Robin Hood and Maid Marian, respectively, from Ridley Scott’s 2010 adaptation of what someone, somewhere has likely described as a “classic tale.”

Now here’s what the reader is being asked to do: compare and contrast the images above.

I’ll start:

Compare
Great Swedish actor Max von Sydow is just out of the frame in both images.

Contrast
Great Swedish actor Max von Sydow is adjusting his codpiece just out of the frame in only one of the images.

Now you.
