I have some mixed feelings about this one… I need more time to think about it. At the moment, I see two photos in one. The river, with its T shape seems to split the photo horizontally. The upper part is pure delight…

Let's see what the others will say, I might be well be wrong about the split-image thing.

The sky's the thing. The boardwalk distracts.

No idea why, but I'm less bothered by this last version. It might be the placement of the river in the frame?

That's not a river. It's just flood waters pooling up from the river.

Have to agree with the flow here. Seems like there are two images. Otherwise, it's just too many conflicting elements to hold the eye to one theme.

Thanks for the info… I've yet to go to Yosemite!

I don't remember where I read this, it might have been in an old book on composition by a photographer named Axel Bruck. Although everyone likes to talk about the rule of thirds, most of the great artists of the past avoided exact thirds like the plague.

To my eye, that looks like the difference between the two versions. A more organic ratio seems to soften the effect of the hard separation of sections of the frame.

This picture is very interesting. People would either like or dislike it.
I really enjoy reading the comments.

Yes, you're probably right! Sometimes, I don't spend too much time asking myself why.
