Going through my pictures of my recent trip I notice 2 photos of the Pragser see with the same mountain range in the background, taken at almost the same time.

#1.:

I myself prefer #1 but I'm curious to hear other opinions.

I like the color of #1 but the contrast of #2. They are both nice images though.

#2 for me also. The clouds are more interesting and they break the line of the mountains up nicely. There is a horizontal line of rippled water in #1 that I find very distracting.

Both very nice. Why not print both and use as wall hangers in different places?

Oh man, decisions! I really like the lines in 1. I feel like the flow better. But... that tiny dock really jars those lines. It feels lonelier and more wild. 2 is beautiful and the lighting is a wee bit better... but I still like 1! I guess I'm a big fan of hidden corners... 1 makes me wonder what's around those trees.

#1 is too heavy on the right side with the foreground rocks, then the trees, and then the mountain focal point. The clouds and the mountain range on the left are both in shadow, and in conjunction with the lower left patch of of dark water, the image really needs something on the left to balance out the right side of the picture.

Picture #2 could use a little breathing room on the top where the mountain is close to the top edge of the frame, and it also has some of the balance issues that #1 does, but the brighter clouds on the left help mitigate that, and I do like how the light is hitting the trees and the mountain in this shot. I'd vote for #2.

Although I do see why most here prefer the second picture I'm still leaning to number 1 :-).
Perhaps it's the mood of the scene or the lack of movement in the lake on the right side.
I agree that I could have done better with the composition of nr 1 regarding breathing room on the top.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

Hans.

I like the composition in #1 but it would have been ideal if the wind didn't pick up on the far side of the lake... Nature right? ;)

However in #2 I really get the feeling of the enormity of the mountains but I would have probably concentrated on the treeline and the mountains and skipped the lake all together so you create some extra space on the top.

Nonetheless I would be happy with both shots!

both are beautiful. I prefer the foreground subject/composition in the first, but really like the light hitting the trees in the second.

Both are nice, but for me No.1 is better in just about every way, composition, color, overall feel, etc. To me it is a technically more sound image.

ps: after I scrolled back up and looked again I am not so confident anymore :) both images are great, but if I absolutely had to I think i would settle on No.1

Having too many good images is a good problem to have though :)
