Which Image Do You Prefer

p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Which Image Do You Prefer


I like both these images but the first one has legs/knees cut off and was originally shot in landscape orientation so there is nothing more to work with. Lesson learned. I like it because there's a face involved. I also like/dislike the second image for the reasons mention above.
What are you're thoughts? If you had to pick just one?
Thanks for your input.

I prefer pic 2 but I would rework the vignette to better suit the Atmos.

I particularly like the left swaying of her hair matching the swaying of her dress.
Her left hand is typical of a child talking to himself and her right arm....lifted foot.... puts balance to the whole body movement.

All her movements add life and dynamism to an otherwise overshot type of pic.

Please rework the vignette

The first may have a personal appeal to you, but photographically, there's little to recommend it in terms of message, composition or general appeal. The second has a message and says it reasonably well, although the excessive vignette distracts, diluting the message.

Thanks so much for the replies. Funny about the vignette - I hardly ever use it. I guess I got a little carried away on this one. I'll rework it.

+1 @ tone down the vignette, but you might also crop some off the top to weight it a little differently.

I agree with everything except the shortened crop as the longer version makes her appear taller and have a place to walk to.

I'm with the others. #2.

But I like the colors in the first, and the attitude she has.
As presented, its a bit tall above her head. Would like a bit more on the left. You might have it in your original, or add some space in PS.
I took a quick look at a 4:5 format without adding any space. Just adjusted exposure (+) and slightly darkened the bright area above her head, which is more problematic in your posted version.

Definitely the second is better. I agree with brutigo--she looks like she's peeing in the first one. Don't crop the second, though--it has a nice flow to it.

Definitely digging the second one! There's a lot of motion...in her body, the pathway and the plants lining it, etc. Looks good!
