"O God, I could be bounded in a nut shell and count myself
a king of infinite space,
were it not that I have bad dreams."
Act II scene ii
I like D the best. My attempt to rationalise that would be to say that it's harder to capture a moving target.
B pleases me as it draws you eye in and beyondD is the most interesting
AFter much deliberation I decided on A. It sort of draws you into the picture and I want to know what is around the bend.E was my second choice as again I felt drawn into the picture.Brionyx
Tough between A and B but I'll nominate B
The lighthouse, like the composition of the photo.
I like D the best.
A - I would enjoy taking that path and seeing what lies beyond.
B, C and D are great - but I think B is my favourite.
My first choice is a tie between A & C, with maybe A a little ahead. The curving road leads the eye in, and the contrasts between light and dark give interest. C interests me because of the unusual juxtaposition the vertical items. I would not choose D or E. In D, the squirrel is too static and right in the center of the image. I'd like E better if the top of the cliff did not line up exactly with the horizon - that ruins it for me.
I know you haven't posted it here,but you should be very confident of winning.
I'm absolutely blown away by these photos. No wonder your photos are being published. I pick B of the valley.
THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HAVE KINDLY CONSIDERED THESE PICTURES. YOUR COMMENTS HAVE HAD AN IMPACT ON MY FINAL CHOICES. IN THE END I AM GOING TO GIVE THE GOLD MEDAL TO PICTURE B. THANK YOU FOR YOUR INPUT.
I'm very late seeing thee. They are all lovely photos but my vote would have gone to A with B a very close second. The path in both leads your eye into the picture but, to me, A invites me in more as you can already see the view in B. Hope you win !!
