Which Composition?
« on: December 19, 2019, 09:00:01 pm »

If either of these is engaging to you, which composition do you like the best?
(The tighter shot is processed, the other is not. Both are full frame).

I think it needs the “air”, but it depends on the message you want and the images on either side....

Thank you degrub. That is the direction I was heading after showing it around and getting reactions. I'm going to go back to my captures and re-think it.

Being honest is the best to help.

There is no composition, the two shot’s are a bit different framed, thats it.

I've never denied climate change, Ivo. The climate is always changing. As I've pointed out before, when I was at University of Michigan I was being taught we were on the verge of a new ice age. Now we're on the verge of burning up. The horse-hockey that's been put out on the subject is astronomical.

Understand the distinction now. Hadn't really thought about it like that. And, Thank you. I always, only, want honest. Anything elase is useless ego-rub. I already have too much of that; looking for facts. I think what I was asking is which provides a better sense of place. That would have have been a better question, and the answer is neither I only framed it 3 different ways and now think only the third may be interesting. I'll see. I will work it up and post it here later today. Thanks

Add enough context to be more interesting? Its all I have from the scene.

I like this wider version best by far.
There is interesting context, and the viewer's eye can wander around a bit until finally spotting the lion in the mail box, which is still the central subject.

Thanks, Eric. I'm learning. I wish I had thought more about it at the time. There was a better shot there, but I did not see/get it. I originally stopped for the whole scene, then found the lion and zeroed in on it. Adding that little bit of context was an afterthought at the end before I walked on, and half-assed at that. Next shot...

Looking for opinion doesn't usually include "fact" because opinion is subjective.
