  • Two images

    Two images, one upright, one landscape.
    Which do you prefer?




    Both with EM1 Mk2 12-40mm lens.

    Prefer the first. on the second the top seems too busy and does not contribute to the overall image. Just my view of course

      They both work. Think I prefer No.1 it gives a feeling of depth.

                  First one for me too.

                  Too much messy branches in the top of the second one. Very distracting.

                    I would take the second one and crop it about 1:1 this giving just a little bit more of the branches and that beautiful light shining thru.

                      I agree with Angelica but prefer the rendering of the fence and path in the first one. It looks a bit over exposed in the second.

                        To me it has to be the first. mainly because the second is a tad overexposed to me. This is the result of having a longer exposure in the second picture (1/250th vs 1/320th in the first)

                        I can see that you had -1ev in both. to get them exposed the same you may have had to make more adjustment

                          I like no.2 better although I would lose a lot of the top as I feel the 'overgrowth' is 'bearing down' on the rest of the picture.
                          Like Angelica I would go 1:1. I do edit quite a few to square these days and like the result (a bit tighter).

                            #1 for me, better processing and that bit extra on the left side works better. Too much fuss at the top of #2 and it just doesn't have the feel of a landscape picture.

                              I'm out of sync here but I think composition-wise the second (portrait) mode is more appropriate

                              Some tweaking could be done but it's definitely portrait for me.
