Shadow Shot Sunday : Decisions, Decisions...



So it usually takes me FOREVER to choose photos to post because I always have trouble picking my favorites out of the MANY that I take during each shoot.  I wanted to narrow it down to two photos...one of the closer vertical shots, and one of the long horizontal shots.  I kept on going back and forth between each of these.  There's something a like about each one.  Finally I decided to post them and have you choose instead!  Please let me know which your prefer out of the two photos above, then while you're at it...pick one from the photos below too.  Thanks for doing my job for me! ; )



























If you want to join in with your own shadow shots, or just see who else is participating, pop on over to Hey Harriet for Shadow Shot Sunday.

I like the bottom landscape one because I like the tree and the round bit (clock?)at the top left corner of it. And I like the bottom one of the portrait ones because it doesn't have all the bricks. I do like them all muchly tho!

Happy SSS, Esther! I agree with Michele - I like them all. My fav, though, is the very bottom landscape shot because I think the angle adds more drama.

Hey I don't think there's anything wrong with posting multiple photos. The more the better I say! But if I have to choose faves, I'll go with the second one from the top two, and the second one from the bottom two :) Each is lovely! Have a great week ahead!

The bottom is my favorite too. It is so soft and dreamy looking.

As long as you're asking, I'll tell you I like the second shot of the stairway and the bottom shot of the structure. Seems to me more angle makes them bolder or more striking. Then again, they are all very good. You do a great job with your camera. That bottom photo seems to be more angular, like the building is up on a hill. I like them all.

Peace.

i like the second photo in both the top and bottom...i'm going with the less is more...but then i am a "close up" kinda girl. love the colors in these photos.

Joan said...

Top one in the first, and the bottom one in the second. :)
Beautiful building and color.

Of course I like them all - but for the most shadow value I like the horizontal ones. We have a bit of spotty sun so when I goo to the store today I will like to snap some shadows. We don't have any decent stuctures around here so I will have to really look for some beauty in shadow.

Kristin said...

I agree - all fab - and all start to look alike if I stare too long ;). I pick 1 and 4 xoxoxo

i prefer the top one in each section because the shadows are much more intense. both of them are great and i wish i lived near to you so i could some similar shots. i just love these kind of buildings and the shadows.

Hey Lady!!
Thank you so much for your sweet comments and for visiting the House of Art! Unfortunately, Emme took the rest of the site down (the new content will remain until the end of the month) so I really don't know how to get the content for the rest of the videos for you. Such a bummer too, as I was hoping to get you doing some videos for them too . . .
Anyway, thanks so much for your support - oh, and check out my blog as I have a giveaway up as of now . . . xoxo

Is it too late to vote??? I like the second one in each series..... I think I prefer tighter shots, I feel like I'm "in it"??? Having said that, they are ALL beautiful!!! xo

I like the top of the vertical and the top on the horizontal the best.
