Another one where I'm not sure if the cropped v1 is better or not than the original landscape composition of v2. Your help will be much valued Smile Thanks for looking.

For me, V1 has more impact and makes a better composition.

I like both, but the strange thing is, although I usually prefer the improved impact of a cropped image, I prefer V2 here, and it's probably because he is gazing so intently into the empty space and I feel that space is necessary.

Both good pictures, I think that vers.1 just takes it because of the greater impact of the closer view.

I'm going to be really awkward here, I think there is a middle ground between V1 and V2. his stick is out the image on V1 and this is a vital part of him. Whereas in V2 there is not quite enough of his character that you show in V1 ..no answers really for this just my thoughts Smile
nice series though indeed

Hiya Dianna - thanks for the helpful crit - I really think you've hit the nail on the head - I will see what I can do to include enough of the stick to add to the characterisation. Much appreciated. Bruce Smile
