Portrait version - which do you prefer ?

Canon EOS 7D 1/160 second F/14.0 ISO 100 40 mm

Spotlight and Colour Spotlight Images at :


Maria from California, United States

I love both, and I super adore this scenery...
Maybe this (vertical) one it's a tiny bit more intense, due to the fact that it actually feels as if I just stepped into the image and just started to walk on the path...but I love equally, both

Mirjam from Kyiv, Ukraine

I like this one!

7 Jun 2012 5:30am

Doug from Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom

Definitely this one Nige, the pov seems to have more punch and moving to one side offered the opportunity to put the track on a diagonal. (now if you had slithered !!)

I definitely like this one more, the frame is much bigger and the road so inviting !*****

Great use of leading lines to bring me into the photo to the field of yellow. Well conceived and presented.

Evelyne Dubos from Le Mans, France

I prefer this one, for the framing of the path which gives a lot of depth to the scene.

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

I prefer the more distant feel of this one Nigel, the path feels somewhat shorter in the previous picture.

Ainsley from Derbyshire, United Kingdom

I have to say my preference is for yesterday's shot, I just prefer the way the road runs off into the distance.

I love both today and yesterday...the different perspectives make the stunning landscape even more beautiful.

Jason Politte from Conway, AR, United States

Lovely - I prefer this version . . . just seems better put together with a tighter composition.

7 Jun 2012 10:51am

Jules from Drayton, United Kingdom

Two great shot but I believe this is my favourite - really like the offset you created by moving to the left so the track bends across the frame.

Heinz from Hamm, Germany

Hard to say.... I prefer the composition of this one, but I love the clouds of yesterday's capture ! So both are excellent ! Have a lovely day :)

This one being slightly offset definitely adds more interest to the image.

franz from Baden, Austria

wonderful landscape with a perfect summer feeling !!!

7 Jun 2012 5:24pm

Ted from South Wales, United Kingdom

previous...but I'm struggling to rationalise why...can only think the tracks being central are more direct and pleasing on the eye?

7 Jun 2012 7:08pm

Elaine Hancock from Rockville, United States

I like them both very much. It is a difficult decision. I think yesterday's has my vote by a small margin! I think I like how the road leads directly into the yellow yesterday. I like the expansiveness of the view today. A hard decision!

7 Jun 2012 8:16pm

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

I like them both, but I will have to say that I prefer the landscape orientation shot. But I love the contrast in greens of the rolling hills which are more pronounced in this one.

7 Jun 2012 8:53pm

Eric Cousineau from Sherwood Park, Canada

I think I prefer this shot Nigel! ;-)

7 Jun 2012 10:48pm

8 Jun 2012 2:05am

B.Sully from Surf City, United States

oh wow, LOVE this one! Both shots are great, but I think this one has a bit more depth to it, and an interesting cuve in the road. Lovely!

Anthony Morgan Lambert from Bielefeld,Old West Wales Boy), Germany

I do like both but this one is the better of the two shots.The framing is better here.
