After the exhibition

Yet another occasion when the photography gods were smiling on me  last Sunday morning for a change.

There I was kneeling down line-ing up my shot of the brush and leaflet holder when in to my viewfinder comes a hand put a leaflet back in to the holder. Snap I had the picture.

I don’t think the woman whose arm it was knew that I was using a 20mm wide-angle lens and she was inadvertently in my shot.

Just to be sure I reposed the shot with my friend Jean’s hand just in case but I have used the original picture here.

Which of the two versions do you prefer?

Is the top square picture too simple and tidied-up? At a second look I like the diagonal composition of the darker tones in the second picture.

Let me know which you like the best.

A  big hello to all the followers of my little blog, why not leave a comment?

    Second photo, the outlets bring your eyes from low to high points in the composition.

        Thanks for sharing both options, makes photography real and in the eye of the beholder, but in this case you the photographer.

    It’s the first one, definitely. That’s the great thing about wide wide-angles. Folk have no idea they are ‘featuring’ in the shot. I’m posting an example that relies on that fact tomorrow – purely by chance.
