    Which crop is better?
    I like them both, so I can't decide between the two!

    I like the second one better...but I would like to see just a little more on the bottom. I want to see just enough water on this side of the land to give us the view that the light house is out on the peninsula.

    I personally prefer the first, but I'm not exactly sure why. I think the vertical crop compliments the height of the light house, the other seems to lose that feeling for me.

    First one. Maybe with a bit of the water showing I would go for number 2 though.

    Thanks everyone!
    After standing back and looking at them both(considering what y'all have said) I think I like the first one the most with that crop I think it compliments the lighthouse very nicely.
    A border might fit it nicely... I'll try that also.

    If anyone has any other ideas.... please go ahead and add to this!:D

    Same here: I immediately felt (and in 'critiquing' I mostly just feel, mind) that I prefer the first over the second. The vertical frame gives the lighthouse the room it needs. That's my feeling.

    Another question..... High contrast? or low contrast?

    Here is another one I made that is higher contrast and has a border... tell me what you think...

    I also placed it in the first post next to the other pictures for reference.

    :shock: I didn't think that question was even possible.... it's only "How much contrast do I add?" ;-)
