Just showing off
We had dinner with friends in Tiburon last week, friends who live on Belvedere Lagoon right on the water. They have an artichoke plant on their deck, and I got to taking photos of it.
I thought it would be nice to have a print made of my best photo and send it to them as a thank you gift. But I’m not all that sure I’m much of a photo editor–I’m not having much luck picking the one of these I want to print. Then it occurred to me: I have a blog! I can post all of the finalists and see if there is any consensus on which is the best. So here are the final choices, and there will be a poll at the end. I’m looking forward to your choices.
Number seven – great composition.
I vote for photo no. 2 by far….. Dan
Chris, I would have chosen number 7 had you taken the picture with a larger lens opening distorting the background more. In number 7 I find my eyes drifting to the background trying to determine what is there, where as in picture number 5 the background is sufficiently distorted that my eyes stay focused on the blooming artichoke, the main subject………….. my choice. …………. cousin nick
