Photo(s) of the Day

I apologize for my lack of posting today, tomorrow I will explain where I have been today. But until then, I would like to pick your brains.

(Am I the only one that always spells that brians?)

Which of these pictures do you prefer, and why? Unless you don't know why, then you can just say "'cause" and be done with it!

Update: After hitting publish I realized that these photos look blurry in the post, if you click on them to enlarge however, they are much clearer.



(I really didn't do that to the sky, today was gorgeous, the lighter sky is actually an edit. Weird huh?)

Even if you aren't a huge fan of the picture itself.

I'm conducting a little experiment over here, so in the name of science, which of the three do you like best?


  1. I like number one best...I think because I can see what is being walked on :)

  2. I like the first one too. Don't really know why, though.

  3. I think they all look the same. P.S. I'm always right.

  4. I like the first one--it tells more of a story about where he has been and is going.

    Also, is it absurd that at first glance I assumed the white was the sand of the Gulf? That shows what a southerner I am!

  5. I like the first one the best.

  6. The first one. Have a great weekend!

  7. Definitely the first one...

  8. I like the last one least, because the sky has lost some of its colour and it looks flatter.

    Number 2 is good because the sky is in more focus as is the figure (coz you've got closer and taken away some of the foreground).

    I like number 1 too because the snowy ground balances the big blue sky.

  9. Forgot to say that I like the first one best because you can see all the details more clearly - the snow, the yellow flowers on the hills, the azure blue of the sky...

  10. I like the first one. I like the blue sky above contrasting with the pretty green and white below.

  11. I like the second one the best. It appears as though the person in the focal point of the photo....
    In the first photo the 'stuff' at the bottom distracts from the person
    In the last photo it seems to plain without it. So, the second seems to have a nice balance.

  12. I like the first one b/c I like contrast and the colors of the ground and the sky sort of blend together layer after layer until all you see is sky.

    The second one, the dark figure of the person really stood out to me.

    The third one I don't appreciate the colors as much b/c the contrast isn't really there.

  13. Wow I can't believe how the majority loves #1. I couldn't DISAGREE more! I liked #2 the best because #1 had too much going on, and the man no longer had the focal point, which I think he needs to be. #3 didn't have nearly enough contrast with the sky, and #2 had the contrast and had enough of the ground to make the story. #2 -- definitely.

  14. Here is an artist/designer/photographers opinion for you - use the horizon line of number 2 but move the person so they are about a third of the way from the edge - rule of thirds - works everytime for photos. Nice photo by the way!!

  15. Looking at the pictures on your blog I like #1 best, just enough background and foreground.

    But when I enlarge them I like #2 better now the amount of foreground seems just right. #1 when enlarged the foreground seems too much.

    Will you share the experiment with us?

  16. My brians says number one. It tell a complete story.

  17. I'm late coming into this one but I have to say I like photo 2. Colors, contrast and how it frames itself, vs. #1 and #3.
    Like someone else mentioned, the rule of thirds.
