Same photo, two ways...
I've been trying to shoot early-morning street stuff in Washington. I got home and realized I'd essentially shot the same image twice, but in a different location and with different subject... And the more I look at them, the less interesting either one of them looks...
Heh, They don't look the same to me at all, except for the colors. The shadows on the second one really bring out the figure in the streets; WAY different composition there.
Don't beat yourself up over it, these are great!
these look pretty good to me especially the colours but why is the lady in the corner on first one so grainy looking? :S
i dont liek the second one much, focus goes to the person
same goes for the first one. but the first one would be VERY good if the person wasnt there. i LOVE all the colors in it. especially the blue sky and red/orange lights on teh building
keep it up
I have to disagree with most of y'all... compositionally, they're essentially the same picture. The top one is the better of the two, though - it looks more balanced and the architecture is more interesting.
i agree, i think the first one is the better image. though the bits of the neighboring buildings on the sides is distracting to me, and the image seems to be on a bit of a tilt making my head want to tilt along with it. it would be better without the woman in the foreground for sure(damn pedestrians! hehe)...and i could picture it looking very interesting with some cars going by and people in the background, but with a very slow shutter speed to make it seem like a lot of time is going by.
i do understand how you see it as the same image, b/c they are both images of a building from across the street at a triangular perspective(not sure the best way to say that..). but i really think the first image could be awesome with a few adjustments. love the color.
