Yes, I think it does "read" better in v1
Sorry to her about your cameras being stolen, hope you are adapting well to the Canon

It is an interesting effect about reading from left. Maybee v2 would function better where they read words from right to left.

That is so kind of you, Lillian, to give me your precious UA, thankyou so much.
Helen is referring to the fact that I had 3 cameras stolen whilst in Spain and have bought 2 Canons, but most of my pictures will have been taken with the Fuji.

I really love yours colour and details all the time, superb!
Strangely, I prefer V1. It is true that our visual point ends on the right, but I feel that V2 lost the strong impact of the main subject at first glance...

This is a superb butterfly picture story--- an image that shows the perfectly focused butterfly in a more or less natural setting aided with the clever addition of a thoughtful background--- As to reading left to right, etc. I think both wrok and lean towards v2.

Exquisite!

Interesting the use of the formica. Given me ideas. It works great as a non distracting bg. Yes V1 seems comfortable for me.Funny how the brain works isn't it. Super definition Pamela. Paul

Beautiful capture, lovely detail & colours, the backround works really well, it enhances the butterfly.
Thankyou for taking the time to look at & comment on my tulip shot. I am a beginner & appreciate any help to improve my shots. It was the first time I have ever blacked out the background, will enlarge the image next time to get a defined edge.

Makes no difference to my eye whichever of these I view, both are outstanding! Really like the effect you got with that bg idea.

Two terrific images Pamela, I think I prefer v2 slightly. The detail and colours in this macro are fabulous
13 Apr 2011 1:37PM
Don't mind which way it is but then I'm no judge! Either way it is a lovely image and a very clever background too. Sorry to know that you had your cameras stolen but it's not the camera that makes the picture, it's the person behind it and you never cease to impress.

Great detail and colours, I think you did right to mirror the image Pam, the eye/brain coordination works better this way. Great perch, it looks like playing seesaw. Grin

Outstanding capture Pam, nicely lit with good detail and b/g. Well that is interesting now that you mentioned is easier to view from left to right.

This is a fantastic shot and the use of the formica in the background adds another dimension [ hope thats the right word] this is the sort of photography i would like to get into. once again brilliant shot.

I'm suprised that I'm the first to suggest how much like a mobile this is, which, to me explains the flipped version.
You can "spin" the image by flicking from 1 to 2.
I had the same delemma with one of my uploads in the week Pam. This left to right business is very strange.
Hope your camera "loss" has a happy ending. One of my favorite cameras ( I only have two ) has developed
an alarming vibrating problem and cannot be trusted for anything important, other than weddings. Wink

A beautiful capture Pamela. Clever on two counts 1 how you mirrored it , so much more pleasing to the eye and 2 finding that piece of sky like formica. So well thought out and put together xxx
