This week at Sunday Stills the challenge was to shoot with a change of perspective. Then post one good photo and one bad. Sometimes a photo is neither good or bad and it's up to you to pick which shot you like best. When Im shooting I always think...'get the shot'. Then look for the shot within the shot or the new perspective or angle.
I shot the above photo first. I liked the sun position and the opportunity for flair and I had a bit of a soft spot for 923 here...she was very curious about my camera. I liked the photo and the angle but thought that I should change my position and see what else I could capture.
For the 2nd photo I just moved over from where I was standing (apron 10-12') and closed up the space between us with the zoom.
Once I got home and had a chance to look at both images on the computer I was happy that I took the time to take the 2nd image. I'm not sure which one I like better. For me I think I like the 1st maybe a tad bit better. I like the way her body is leading my eye right back into the frame towards the light.
Which do you prefer and why?
