The portrait version “compresses” the pier a bit too much in comparison. so dark and moody. you made this pier look somewhat haunted. =) nice! This is a hard one, Rian. The landscape version emphasizes the length of the pier and the vanishing-point perspective. But the portrait version emphasizes the height and the vanishing point. I like them both! Dramatique à souhait. un pont vers l’éternité . Très beau cadrage qui accentue l’effet Indeed it looks haunted ! Nice effect you achieved! I like them both. If the portrait version didn’t have the beach (with the footprints) then hands-down I’d like the landscape better. Both are excellent! I like the dreamy effect of the water. Wow the size of this one is overwhelming! Really cool how those poles seem to vanish into oblivion. This structure takes on a surreal feel with the smooth water surface beneath it. The sharp detail and excellent processing aid this mood. A very strong, effective image. stunning! Super compo . Gloomy mood 😉 WoW!! Great lines. It goes forever!! Bonsoir, A nice composition..Beautiful perspective..Bravo! You bring us to another world, the world where time doesn’t exist anymore as mentioned Lasiate. Both well done! Both well done as i said, but i prefer the portrait version because of the balance of the lines in the composition. Love the stillness of this image…the composition..the balance. great texture. they are both wonderful, i really like silvery soft black and whites 🙂 Me gusta mucho la perspectiva y el tratamiento que va degradando la luz. Muy buenos tonos. Saludos. This is sensational…dark and dreamy. Perfect. i prefer the top one. lovely mood in both of them though. Great composition! I love the b&w white with the grain-nice touch and great atmosphere here. A feeling of misterious along the bridge …. good work ! […] was taken at the same place as last friday’s post, just gave it a different treatment.. EXIF information model Canon EOS 40D exposureTime […] This is great. Dark and moody. I DEFINITELY like the vertical version best! By a lot! Gorgeous. Just beautiful, no noise, paradize, pure photograpy Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
