At the poles...

Not the polls! My candidate is already a shoe-in!

1.)

2.)

3.)

Which of these three images is more pleasing to your eyes?
I'm partial to #3 now. Thanks for the suggestion byalip!

Tobay beach? I like 2 as well; nice foreground/background contrast with that one up big.

Yes, good eye!

MCF said...

I thought those poles were familiar; was there 2 years ago with my original "toy" digital camera. :)

I like the texture of the pole in #2, but I really like #1 because my eye darts from the first to the last throughout the photo.
They capture different aspects, glad you gave us both!

I want to like #2 the best, but the first one is really the one that does it for me. I normally like pictures with some good depth/contrast to them, and thus am surprised at my own choice.

Not that the first one doesn't have depth, but I think you'll understand what I mean.

Tatman said...

Number 2. I like seeing the texture.

Scott said...

Number one for me. I think I agree with Carletta.

Also, glad to see that you've come to your senses. ;-)

I like #2 best...but I'd play around with the cropping.

What I like: the closeup of the blue pole at the left adds a nice graphic color field. The texture is a definite bonus.

What do you think about cropping out the top portion--the roof structure--so that the only part of the roof we see is at the far right? I'm trying to make the photo much more horizontal.

I can do that from the original. I'll try to remember to do that tonight and update the post :)

I like #1 and I have no idea why.

I like # 1 better.

It just looks more balanced to me- with more of the sky showing!

Heidi said...

I like #2... but maybe play with the cropping? My first thought was that I loved the BIG pole still in the front, but maybe not as much of it?

Cool colors... neat angle... nice photos overall, though.

Anna said...

Lol, these are cool. B13 hope all is well, been while since my last visit. Anna :)

Anna said...

...both for me, forgot to add, lol. Anna :)

Anna said...

I think I am liking the third one. I like the blue in these shots! Glad you liked the maternity shots. I was so nervous sharing them!

Anna said...

I am the ONLY one to say the 3rd pic? Seriously?

b13 said...

The third was just put up a few hours ag :)

Carletta said...

Still #1 for me. I still favor the three elements (the poles, the railings, and the sky) all coming together as one.
Look at it this way - you've satisfied us all!

Tatman said...

I'm switching to #3. It still has the textured pole, the spill from nowhere, and a door leading to who knows where.

Laura said...

Third is much better

I like the top one best. More to look at, and better composition in my opinion.
