    Just read your comment about these in the other thread. Oh God, don't tell me I've just voted for the one produced via the application HDR techniques!!!!!

    Fear not Donald ... the HDR was accomplished with a GND filter

    Re: And my favourite is?

    It would be easier to vote given the same parameters in each photo...however, #2 for me (but only because I like the definition in the water which isn't seen nearly as well in image #1) and, Could you take a section, say 3" x 3" and show it without the 96dpi reduction to determine a value in definition...details?

    Hi Colin,

    As I type, I just tipped the scales to #1

    I found I had to work hard to see what it was at first (a bench we've seen before) because of the strong silhouette, but I like the reflected blue edges.

    #2 is OK, but I find the 3 posts breaking the view of the water disturbing - I don't mind their reflections, it is that they cut the light ribbon of water (the river/inlet/bay(?)) into four chunks that I don't like.

    Cheers,

    I like #2 more.
    #1 sweeps me out of frame.

    Re: And my favourite is?

    Vote for the first for two reasons :
    - the colours of the first image (rich blue of the sky, sensuality in the blacks) are more attractive than the more more muted hues of the 2nd
    - the composition of the 2nd image is less attractive, it being broken into 5 or 6 horizontal layers, with a foreground layer containing clutter of no great pictorial interest.

    Cheers, Chris.

    The second photo is more interesting. I like the reflections and colors in the water. The rocks in the foreground complete the photo for me. I find the dimly lit bench in the first photo an obstacle to the more interesting scene beyond.

    Re: And my favourite is?

    Colin, it is #1 for me as I rather like the feeling it gives me of being the only one there to see the view and enjoy the serenity. #2 is a nice shot though it seems to have a bit to much going on that causes me to wander rather than settle in on the feel. I am not so great with putting a critique into words but figured I would tell how I see it.

    Speaking of telling 'em how I sees them, I like #2 because I do. Don't know why, but the preference is clear to me.
