    here you are a few pictures from yesterdays' trip... I took my bike and rode to the woods where I fund this lake. From the one side there were a few kids jumping and playing in the water:

    far, there was a lonely swan:

    but I can't decide which one is better, horizontal or vertical:

    Just wanted to share :)

    Oh they're gorgeous. So dreamy in a 'perfect world' way. I'd like to see the first one closer up - but still you've done a great job with the sun's reflection imo.

    I vote for horizontal. It makes the swan look some much more alone and sad. *sob* :-( To me that droplet of water falling from its beak looks like a tear. Very good work on these mentos!

    Always the odd one out!!!

    I prefer the verticle one! It just seems to show a bigger area with nothing else in it. I also like how the lack of ripples in the water don't destroy the swans reflection like they do in the horizontal one!

    It's a nice photo though! Really peaceful and gentle!

    I like the horizontal one myself ......... the swan is poised to dip his head

    Some great shots here mentos. The first one makes me feel really nostalgic, although I agree with Meysha that you could have gotten closer in, and perhaps given the kids more prominence, as they're the main point of interest.

    As for the swans, I'd say that you take the vertical photo, and crop it from where the foreground reeds finish to where the background reeds start. I think that'd look great. I love the shape that the swan's neck makes with the reflection.

    Nice set! Looks like a beautiful place to be. I also like the horizontal one more.

    Nice shots. Has it been so warm that kids can swim? Reminds me of when I was young we had a river and setup just like that one.
