    What do you feel is the better orientation for this particular scene?
    Horizontal (i.e. a landscape taken in landscape mode)?

    Or vertical (i.e. the landscape captured in portrait mode)?

    Or even zoomed in, maybe? Which is the nicest to your mind?

    I voted horizontal, but the zooomed in is nice also, as it shows the gate leading to the next field.

    It's all a matter of taste. I liked the vertical shot most but they're all good.

    I think all three are great! In fact if you were to hang them up I'd put them all together as a series

    Umm.. Ha! I couldn't decide that easily but I went with horizontal. With the editing of the vertical :)

    The top horizontal is nice...it gives the look that the path goes down and then off to another land past the trees... It gives the viewer/path a place to go.

    The vertical just chops everything up and makes the treads the focus.. It's not a scene, just a photo of a couple of tread marks...

    The final horizontal gives the viewer/path a destination.......along the woods and through the gate through another portal... possibly the best composed of the three..

    Horizontal all the way...........:thumbup:

    I like the horizontal and zoomed in versions. Although I think I'd have kept the redish tree on the right in the zoomed in version.

    Zoomed in is definitely the best of the three. The first two versions have too much grass that is not nice to look at, and is very distracting... it takes away from the main subject of the image which is the trees.

    Ah, that's an idea! And I thought I had realised that in my fourth take of the scene (here ), which I decided not to enter into my private little poll, alas!, the little red tree closer to me is not to be seen there, either. Hmph. Oh well, I have every chance to return to that meadow. I could go take all-around-the-year photos of it, actually, if I wanted to.

    But I take it I best approach this particular landscape in "landscape orientation" then? OK - thanks a lot. :D

    IMHO horizontal is the best one. I voted to that one.
