Weekly Photo Challenge: One Shot, Two Ways – Manchaug

  1. Excuse me Marilyn but, if you look carefully, you’ll see that, in both cases, the reading of the image is from right-to-left side; so, the vertical (or portrait) format is no proper for any of the shot. Imagine (or try) the second one in portrait format; it would be greater.


    1. I actually don’t agree. I read the falls vertically, regardless of the format. Never right to left. I always have seen it that way. I have shot this waterfall wide, tall, far, close and in all four seasons. My favorite has always been vertical and close, but I have one other shot from farther back that I like. It is also in portrait format. More to the point, the specific WordPress challenge was shooting the same scene in landscape and portrait, so that’s what they got. I agree it looks better in portrait. The movement of the water is vertical, the lines in the water go up and down. Water doesn’t flow across. The only real choice is not vertical or horizontal, but framing close or far. Thanks for the input.
