I would like to know which photo is more appealing
Thanks for looking
I can't give you a reason but I like the second one better
Thanks tiphanie for your comments and for looking
I prefer the second one but over all I think I would have used a deeper DoF for both renditions, not much deeper but deeper nont the less.
Nr. 2 definitely.
I like your thinking but the edges of the statue seem to defined giving the impression of Photoshop blur and not from the camera - I suspect all the image was in reasonable focus to start with.
Thanks for all of your comments
Fangman, just to address your curiosity, the dof was in camera and not part of post processing (Photoshop), they are two seperate photos.
Second one because I feel like she's more the focal point based on the placement... or maybe my eye is just drawn there for some odd reason
The second one definitely catches my eye more. There is more detail that catches the eye in the front statue. In the 1st picture the dof brings so much of the trees in focus ~ and who hasn't seen tree's before you know? So you can make out the trees in the 2nd as well as the general shape/attitude of the statue in back even though they are out of focus. This works two-fold now because not only does the detail in the front statue draw your eye, but the background doesn't compete with it.
