    I slipped out this morning to snap some photos down at the Scarborough Bluffs and ended up with two shots of the same scene. Problem is, being entirely biased I'm not sure which is the better shot. I'm hoping to get some subjective opinions. Feel free to critique the shots, too. Thanks in advance.

    First one, because the second one has something distracting behind the bush on the left.

    Thanks everyone. I prefer the first one too. For me it's all about the line of the fence. The first one has a stronger line. I also think there's a better balance between land and sky. But don't get me wrong, I think the second one is a strong contender for 2nd place. :) Oddly, I've had two votes on my blog and both prefer the second one. Nothing's ever easy, is it?

    I think there is defiantly a consensus on number one. I like it better as well, because it opens up the left hand side to the cliffs/body of water in the distance which guides my eye and makes for a better composition.

    Just my two cents, I hope its helps.
