Which one's best?

Postby Lucky Poet » Sun Jun 14, 2009 11:18 pm

I hesitate to start a thread, but I'm curious. I reckon others have had similar problems though.

Went to Edinburgh to take some photos, and then the weather came. Hiding under Regent's Bridge at the back of Waverley Station, I got these. Trouble is, one's in focus, the other really really isn't (user error on my part). They're of the same subject but quite different shots, and I can't choose between them.

Any thoughts?

See what you mean, both are very nice shots. One for clarity but I like two for the blurryness - into a bit of blurry photoness at the mo so I likey two.

One for me.

Looking at it, I'd like some of image 2 to be in focus.

1st one. Second one is an example of what it's like to be short-sighted.

Two.It envokes the feeling of squinting through the rain.One is good too though.

And #2 has a late surge in the polls! Cheers for yr input, folks. I've noticed that 2 looks better after a drink, oddly. I still can't decide, but it cheers me up that it divides opinions :)

Can't decide either, but I'm tending towards Minxy with the stair-rod rain in number 2.

The lack of the tin roof in the background lends it a marginally more timeless air, too.
