I actually prefer the orange one.

I'm a big fan of contrast, and I think that the orange photo has much more contrast between bright and dark tones.

Also, just personal opinion, but the dark area feels more comfortable to me when it's at the bottom. Just just seems to feel more "heavy" to me, and I like that the orange photo has the "heavy" part at the bottom. That just seems more stable to me, and gives me more comfort.

This in no way implies which one is BETTER. I simply LIKE the orange one a lot more. Mostly just personal preference, I guess. All cold tones tends to bum me out, I love contrast (and the yellow/orange in the right photo contrasts with the dark parts more than in the other photo), and dark tones at the bottom just often makes me feel like the "weight" is more natural. Just my personal preferences, but the photo on the left DOES make me feel a bit uncomfortable. The one on the right is far more comfortable and soothing to me.

Thanks, Clean Gene. A very interesting feedback. I can easily follow your interpretation of the weights (dark areas). To me, the density at the top makes the scene a bit unstable, but then, this is the plankton sphere, where stability isn't easily found. Side to side, that overall composition produces a upwards pointing diagonal, which, imho, stabilizes the whole scene.

And I find it especially interesting that you say, the warm, orange panel makes you more comfortable. Personally, I find it easy to just float and wobble a bit along the plankton while I have a harder time to persist in that high energy, upwards pushing, loud orange. :)

Yeah, looking at photographs always means "looking" at your own interpretation of something and this is where individuality strikes. :)

have a nice day
Roland
