Taking Leaves Off Tomato Plants. Is it Nuts?

Here are two containers with 4 plants in each. As an experiment I have removed most of the leaves from one set.
I don't remember what the tomato plants are called! Sorry. I shall see over the summer if I have done a stupid thing or not. I was taken in by the Organic Tomato Magic site.

I have since read the posting on this subject and wish I hadn't been so rash, but at least what I've done will serve as an experiment, hopefully a useful one.

Both containers have water feeding bottles, and the same soil. The sheared plants are in a slightly larger pot, other than that I think there are no differences.

Wish me luck! I think I'll need it.

Do you have some photos to share, so we can see how it looks?
