I would like to enter a local landscape art show. Are either of these any good, if so,which one would you enter? All responses are greatly appeciated!

I like the second one much better. My only suggestion would be to level that horizon.

Go with the sunset over the water. That photo doesn't take much effort to 'consume' and it's eye catching. The first photo is good, but it's more complex.

I agree that the second one is better. The colors, the lines, etc. It has a lot more going for it.

I would go for second. First is nice with bit of soft focus. The foreground is pretty rich but background is not that spectacular. Thats why.

I can see why your struggling to chose! they are both really nice but I do prefer the second.

I fin d that the sunset definitaly has more punch. It draws the eyes way more...
10/24/2006 08:51:17 AM · #8
The second one. The colours are richer, and the subject is more interesting and dramatic.
10/24/2006 08:51:31 AM · #9
Yep, count my vote for the sunset picture!

like the second one a bit better (with corrected tilt, of cause), but would consider, that ther will be loads of sunsets at a landscape art show...

I prefer the sunset one.
10/24/2006 09:36:57 AM · #12
Second one. The first has too much going on.
10/24/2006 09:39:16 AM · #13
I'd go with the second one (the sunset)
10/24/2006 09:55:15 AM · #14
So, if you go with the second one (which I would recommend as well), and it doesn't win, you can blame dpc and say you should've gone with the first one. :)

Awesome shots, btw.

Yeah, I think that the second has more "POW!".

The sunset shot has much more oomph, will probably do better in competition. But you simply HAVE to level it up. Interestingly, you can't just do it by rotating the image (unless you have an uncropped original that is wider on the right) because to do so would bring the sun too close to the right edge.

However, all is not lost: you can use Photoshop's "skew" tool to drag the upper right corner up and level the horizon, then the upper left corner left to square the right-side verticals, like so:

Good luck, I hope it does well for you :-)
