p.1 #1 · Autumn Expressions - Vermont


Shot these a few years ago in Vermont.

I was wondering if there was a preference between the two and also if I should crop the first one at all.

Thanks for any feedback.

#2 - the tighter composition works better for me. Dave

I prefer the second one. I like the lower shoreline as well as the placement of the tall pines better in the second image. That positioning (or crop) gives the photo a better sense of subject.

Beautiful colors!

I like the reflection off the water from 2 better.

WOW! Two keepers for sure. I also prefer the tighter crop of the 2nd shot.

i like the reflections in #2 better but the top feels worse than the first one, worse balanced compared to the water size on the bottom one
i might take the first one overall

I feel that with a subject like this a centered horizon works best. I prefer the stronger colours in 2 but would crop off quite a bit from the top until you have a 50:50 ratio.
Otherwise, I love the scene!

A few things I would like to add. In both images, I have room to add at the bottom because I cropped some off, especially the second image. If it makes for a stronger image in the second, I can always add some reflection to the bottom. I also desaturated quite a bit after adjusting for contrast, so if it needs more color, I can always back off the desaturation.
