Same Shot Three Different Perspectives
Posted By: Jimbo, 08-16-2009, 12:16 PM

Sho these early this morning. Moved up closer to the water to see what a different set up would do for the shot. Can not make up my mind which one I prefer. Cheers JIM

I much prefer #1 as it emphasizes the water and beyond (especially the beautiful cloud formations), versus my eye catching on the brighter and sharper (and ultimately, least interesting) rocks.

I have to agree with the others, #1 looks best to me.

That was a nice series for the comparison. Thanks for posting.

Another vote for number 1 - a great photo. In this instance, I think the foreground rocks are simply a distraction from your great image.

Another vote for no 1 Jim.
I would even be tempted to crop out the foreground grass....even though you do lose a bit of the cloud reflection on the left.....depends what attracted you to it in the first place.

Well, guess I am going to disagree with everyone. Each shot has it's good points yet...
#3 is my pick!
The rocks, though not interesting in and of themselves, anchor the photo and provide an increased feeling of "depth" to the photo that the 1st lacks. The 2nd photo cramps the skyline visibly and has too much foreground.

#1 lets the mountains breath and has the most direct composition.

#2 crops the mountains = bad news.

#3 has the clouds pouring over the mountains in a nice way and also has the best reflection of mountain and clouds in the water. I like the lower perspective. It would be the winner, but it also crops the mountains too much.
