Light. And hence, photographic lighting. It can make a picture completely different from any other picture. Photos are about light, composition, and moment. Light is a differentiator as large as the other two.
And it is a matter of taste. De gustibus non est disputandum.
So, to see what others think, let me ask. Which of the two pictures below (taken on Sunday during the all-day workshop) do you prefer?
I was going to go into the differences, but I should not do that. Just a simple question: which one do you like better? View both large to see the detail.
Please let me know, in email or by commenting below.
And number two:
I am curious. I suppose I have a preference, but I will not tell you which one it is.
