Thread: Which is better?

  1. #1

    Default Which is better?

    Dear Friends,

    My company is organizing a photography contest mainly on Landscapes. This contest will only allow me to submit 3 pictures maximum and does not limit to Color, BW or IR. I am struggling on which one to pick for submission. Hence, I would like your help to choose which you think are the best 3 pictures in the link below by giving me the picture number. Only 10 pictures in this link to choose from. Please give your best 3 opinions .

    I would appreciate if you could help me make a decision. Thank you so much...

    Have a nice day.

    Photo editing and selecting is an important skills to pick up. This is an opportunity for you to exercise your judgement and be critical about your work. I suggest you do your own selection.

    Thanks for your comment. It is more important to get other views as well. Otherwise we wouldn't be setting up this forum isn't it? I mean many people including yourself started off by asking opinions and views. Have I done anything wrong?

    For those who like to share your selection, I would be appreciated it. That includes you Kit. Thanks.

    You haven't done anything wrong (and I don't remember saying that you were wrong to begin with).

    What I'm pointing out is you ought to take this as an opportunity to look at your work again in a more critical manner. You are free to ignore.

    I am not saying that you said "wrong" but merely asking a question. But the fact that you suggest asking me to "select on my own" sounds like I can forget about asking people for opinion, which is not my intention to start with. Brushing up my photography skills (exercising opportunity etc) and getting inputs from others are 2 different things here to begin with. This has nothing to do with my earlier requests. Thanks for commenting.

    Please understand my initial intention to begin with. I will need folks out there to help me indicate what's good to begin with, there is an opportunity for learning and building knowledge through sharing views. This I believe is what the forum is all about. I do apologies if I misunderstood your good intentions Kit.

    Thumbs up Re: Which is better?

    Hi, personally I think that all of the landscapes are taken really well! It's hard to choose from actually... Well, if I have to choose it will be 3, 4 and 10. No.2 is a pity as the bridge is slightly tilted. The subject in no.5 seems too large to call it a landscape photo. And I like natural colours for landcapes personally but no.6 is still stunning! Great job and GOOD LUCK!

    i will pick #3, #8 and #9. consideration is mainly from composition, subject matter and colors. i fancy less of unnatural colors and texture but since that is your general style, i have leave that out of consideration. #1 has good breaks of light but the composition isn't appealing. i think #5 and #10 may be weak for competitions as they are frequently taken as such.

    what company is that? landscape photography as a competition seems very specific.

    #9 is a keeper.
    thast the photo that draws my attention immediately.

    in my opinion the others are equal in std... but if i must choose i'll got for 1, 7, 9.
    if you have #1 in landscape orientation and showing more sky, less water it'll be perfect.

    my 2 cents worth.

    My pick is 1, 7 and 8.

    7 and 8 has the surreal and dreamy effect.
    1 has great ray, but as zoossh mentioned composition a bit weak.
    Overall I like 7 most as it is surreal and the composition is nice and balance.

    The rest is very nice, but I feel they lack something ( can't put it in words ) to impress.

    Sorry to ask, so your decision will be based on the votes you get for the pictures?

    Jet - what is your pick?

    it is important to note what sort of judging is being done. for example, if the judges are nonphotographers, infrared photographs might be a whole load more subjective since they will either love it or hate it. i personally think #7 is a must-have, then #5 and maybe #2. but then again maybe the judges want variety, so you might go better with one b&w, one color, one infrared.

    as you can see, you are already getting all sorts of mixed responses.

    i teach you how to choose

    print them out, put all on the table
    put a dustbin next to the table

    choose all that you know are nice
    those that you are not sure, just bin it

    then do it all again until you only have 3

    btw some of your shots are more outstanding than the others
    so it should be easy to select.

    best of luck

    also this does not belong here in the gallery
