Sunday Stills: Potluck with a Purpose

November 12, 2011

For this week’s Sunday Stills we were asked to go through are archives and look at two similar photos that improved by changing the view point. The most difficult thing was finding pictures I have done this to. I know I have done it, but I have edited my pictures at length over the year continuously making room for on my computer. I found this before shot of a picture I posted from a fall walk. I can’t remember exactly how I changed my view in addition to zooming in, but I think I stood up a bit. I like the cropped picture because I feel like it make the location a little more ambiguous. The lighting improves between the two pictures.

Let me know what you think!

    I am not sure which I like better. But the second one is composed better.

    There are elements I like from both images. I think if the bike rider were in the second one it would add that sense of involvement in the image. However even without human presence the second image is very good. Hard call! Cheers!

    I like both pictures. I think each has a different feel. The first one kind of sweeps you up into it. 🙂

    I like both. They each have different perspectives. I agree with browndawg, the second one seems to pull you in and then sweep you up to the bridge. : )

    I love them both for different reasons. I think Steve said it best!

    I agree about the light in the second shot. Wish the bike had been there too :-).

    This is a tough one.

    Both have a great sense of movement.

    The movement in the first is a bit more energetic because of the bike.


    The movement in the second is more tranquil to my eye….the movement of the water coming over the Falls.

    I have to go with the 2nd…but only because it’s Sunday and I’m feeling more mellow. If I saw them both in the middle of the week…..maybe the 1st.

    Both…really lovely.
