Two pictures of the same Loch from different days earlier this week.

In winter this Loch stays in shade until mid afternoon, but the hillside behind it recieves full light, hence the reflected colour in the second image as the ice melted and became shiny.

Both are nice. On balance, my preference is for the second one, but 'tis a close-run thing.

Actually these are both really fine images.

I marginally prefer the first one because the abstract nature of the shot is accentuated by the apparent monotone and also  because the portrait orientation seems to fit the textures and patterns of the details so well.

Well done for spotting the possibilities of the shot in the field (loch!).

I like the abstract nature of both of these, but I immediately liked #1 best when looking at the two together.

My vote goes the #1 (mostly for the same reasons explained in Tony's post),

Clearly all three of you are wrong. Number two is the better shot. People with taste & discernment will be along shortly, to agree with me.

Number one for sure. Color and texture work very well together. Beautiful light!

I think they complement each other nicely as a pair of images. Lovely!

Those people you speak of still haven't arrived yet, Bill. Wink

My vote is for #1 as well. I think it would work well with a yellow de-saturation to get rid of the patch in the top left. In a large print I would find it distracting from the great textures and patterns that initially draw me.

They are both gorgeous, beautifully composed and arresting.

Very nice, Dave. They both look like Thai Silk patterns. Maybe you should try to sell those patterns to a textile company.

Well Dave, you, amongst others, have given me a lot of viewing pleasure through the year.
It is a wonderful privelage to observe and appreciate the work of others.
Your latest offerings, wonderful images that they are, personify the creativity of humanity.
In your case to spot the possibilities initially and then to to capture those compositions so well.

Hopefully, apart from the pleaure of viewing, we are also cross-pollinating each other with creative ideas and probably more importantly just encouraging each other to get out there and shoot and persist even when our results appear to fall short of our creative ideals.

So Dave, thank you, and thanks to everyone who has had the courage to share their work and creativity.
A Merry Christmas and Seasons Greetings to you and everyone.

Tony, I am deeply touched by your words, you have made a grumpy old man very happy this Christmas, I feel very humbled indeed - thank you again.

If ever I am fortunate enough to capture something worthwhile, I always feel that I have only been able to do so by standing on the shoulders of giants.

Dave

You are welcome Dave, and ditto to the observation of standing on the shoulders of giants.
