I like the muted hue of the first.looks very quiet there..

Second is something I would have snapped at as well.lol.its sharp, good light, but maybe not the most interesting subject.


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

The #1 is an excellent photo. Great composition and lights.

Perhaps it's just me, but I find myself squinting to see what's in the shadows of #1. Which makes me feel like it's underexposed. Perhaps try and crop off the left side up to the house. It looks better when I cover it. Not so much black space

^ Not for me, I like the entire original..it has a water color look to it.

I think it is. But it's a matter of opinion. I don't like squinting to see what's in a photograph. I find the weird white shapes in the dark area very distracting.

I like the tree in the shot- the crop was too much for my taste.

The composition is great the way it is. You crop the tree, you lose depth and the picture. The tree gives you contrast and by cropping you lose somewhat of a leading line from the shoreline to the house. I don't think the photographer intend for you to see details in the tree considering the time of day.

I like the crop, due to the better positioning of the house.
