Two Photos: Which Would You Choose?

Tue Jul 27, 2004 7:58 am

Between this photo...



...and this...



...which would you choose to upload (I haven't post-processed either yet)? They're both nice in different ways, but I obviously can't upload both. Which do you think is more interesting or better for some reason?

Thanks!
Cheers,

After spending a few minutes breaking my neck, I'd say the latter is more interesting as you have the terminal and the Australian B767 parked.

Both will be rejected badangle... Big grin

However, if you have to choose one or the other (and you rotate it enough), the first stands a better chance of acceptance as there's more of aviation interest in the image. It also appears as though there may be a window reflection in the sky in both - that's grounds for rejection too.

Thanks for your suggestions guys. As I said, I haven't post-processed them yet, so I'll make sure to crop out the reflection and rotate appropriately. Seeing as it's now tied 1-1, could someone else let me know what they think, as a tie-breaker? Thanks again!

1 is more pleasing to the eye, but 2 shows more airplanes at the gate, which is cool as well.... 1-1 for me as well... sorry  Big grin

No.1 for me. Love the open view of the runway. No. 2, once you rotate and crop, how much of the terminal is going to be left in the pic Big grin and also, No.2 looks like more of an afterthought than No.1

Hey Guys,

I'd personally go for the first shot, I like the atmosphere with the runway in it, although the terminal shot is still pretty cool....

It would have to be the first one for me.

I prefer the first one. Cleaner and a runway is always a beautiful sight.

First one it is! Thanks for the feedback, everyone!

I'm wondering, though, if I have to level to the horizon as usual or if I can level it with our direction of travel. In the case of the former, too much would have to be cropped out after rotating to make it worth uploading. I was hoping the latter to be acceptable, but wasn't sure if it is.

Cheers,
