Not quite in the frame

More great light moments today, as the sun swung round and cast a window of afternoon light amidst the shadows on my wall… this time, today’s tulips the stars of the show:

All the elements came together for me in the second image …better balance overall. So, tell me, which works for you?

  1. Initially I would’ve said the first, the light centered over the arraignment and a subtle softness to the image that gives it a dreamy quality but upon further inspection, the offset focus of light on the second give character to the overall and the stronger light accentuating the leaves are quite beautiful as well. I fear I love them both equally yet for different reasons.

  2. Second for me. I prefer the balanced lower half of the image with the spread of the tulips. In the first image the tulips feel ‘squeezed’.

  3. I want to say TARRAAAH! to the second one. It somehow steals the show.

  4. Me too. The second one gets it all together just right.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  5. You were right about the second pictures. It reminds me of Van Gogh’s sun flowers. He painted so many. Nice photo #2

  6. Yes the second one, it also shows off the tulips more, one of my favourite flowers 🙂

  7. Second for me too Sue. The flowers are more balanced and I like the square crop

  8. An altogether wonderful composition. You and light are having a very fruitful relationship!

  9. The second one is the most wonderful, for all the reasons other people have already said.

  10. The second one. With sunlight shifting to the right, the two tulips appear as if they’re chasing the horizon. Like rebels unwilling to stay in the shadows.

  11. The first for me – because the shelfy thing in the second distracts me !

      Oh, the mantelpiece! I had to move the vase down to sit on a speaker to catch the light properly! All the time hoping it wasn’t going to unbalance the speaker…..

  12. Beautiful colors and light, Sue. You’re doing a marvelous job with your light series.

  13. Interesting, I think my final choice is the first one. It was odd but when I looked at the second photo the distracting element for me was the items at the base of the vase, which I had totally missed in the first photograph.
