A couple more from my late evening walk along around a small inlet in Burra, Shetland
Basically the same scene one in portrait and the other landscape
This is a damn good upload! I was on the point of logging off, I'm glad I stayed on for a few minutes more.
V1 is nearly, but crucially not quite symmetrical, plus great use of portrait format - the narrative flows up and down the frame. Then V2 expands the scene sideways, adds a relaxed breadth, off-centre placement which is subtle, suggestive.
Made my day. So I'd better go to bed now.
Thank you Moira, sleep well
Hard to chose between the two Adrian.
The exposure seems a tad better on V1 than V2
Just my humble opinion
Two superb images, Adrian. Excellent colour, use of perspective (esp. V1, but unavoidable in V2 though more subtle).
Probably, just probably, I prefer V2: the grasses in the foreground suggest that the surrounding gear has lain unused recently, though it does partially conceal the rope on the ground while giving more prominence to that slung over the white containers. The sprig of cow parsley almost dominates the scene, too, while the reflection of the blue boat at the jetty is clearer. But it's a damn' close-run think!
Mr. and Mrs. woolbill have summarised your shots comprehensively, Adrian, and cannot add anything of value beyond that: whilst the portrait version works well, I do personally prefer the landscape format of V 2. Both shots are very well composed, and it looks a delightful spot for your late evening walk.
A pair of well composed shots whichever format.
The landscape version appeals more to me, I love the natural sense of place and life going on there-- Well done in all respects and a pleasure to view!
Think the experts have already said it all. I'm not too knowledgeable re landscapes, something I sometimes try but rarely post on epz. I do, however, know what I like and for me it just has to be V1 which I think is stunning. V2 is only just a hair's-breadth behind though!!
Two superb images Adrian - love them both, but V2 just takes it for me !
Difficult to chose between them as they are both interesting and excellent images Adrian.
I cannot decide between the two images - both are excellent and well composed. Carole
a picture says a thousand words this one i got to go there grt image
Two excellent images with great composition, but I think I prefer V2.
Thanks all for your comments/feedback/clicks very much appreciated, and many thanks to Chris for the UA, that's made my day
Two superb images - the ePZers have said it all (and much better than I would have), but I slightly prefer v1!
Two excellent shots but V2 for me stands out!
Two really good landscapes here Adrian, and I would go for V2 for the extra views,
congrats on the UA
Two great images, but v2 just does it for me, nice one.
i like the comp in version 2 better.....excellent as per usual
V2 for me but they are both great shots
Prefer V1 Adrian for the portrait format giving the big sky and the better light.
Love the depth on 1 Adrian
Both work well i love the sky detail Adrian
to late, it has all been said Adrian
Another two superb shots here Adrian I prefer the landscape format purely because i hardly ever shoot in portrait format. However I shall have to try it , after seeing yours here
wonderful set Adrian, fabulous lighting - V2 is my favourite
Excellent images ..
certainly a pier that has seen better days
V2 for a vote today
Yes, wonderful composition, two very nice shots Adrian, love them both,
Given the subject and sky, I assumed I would prefer V1 Adrian. However, they both work well and overall I have slight preference for V2.
both amazing captures, if I had to choose it would be v2
Both options are good. Composition and perspective is great.
2 splendid shots Adrian. My preference is for v1 as it gives a greater sense of distance down that pier and beyond and I love the extra height and added sky in the portrait format
Both good but like V2 the best
Two great images, and well presented...............Martin
Two fine shots Adrian but when I switched to V.2 I was at peace. Love the calmness of this one OS xxx
Currently the Featured E2 photo
both very good images well taken.
V1 what a wonderful view, well presented indeed
Top notch images Adrian
Such lovely images.
I just noticed this is being shown as the Featured e2 Photo as I type, Adrian: hope all is well and look forward to more images from Shetland in the future?
Great perspective & I agree with all the above, great work
Picture postcard perfect both versions.Kate
Love the first version especially , Adrian..beautiful scene. I do hope everything is ok with you !
