The instructions are: For this challenge, capture two images — a horizontal and a vertical version — of the same scene or subject. There are no concrete “rules” here, but a) it should be evident that both shots are of the same place/location or person/thing, and b) your photographs should ideally have been taken during the same shoot
I am visiting my daughter in Seattle, WA. We went to Bellevue yesterday afternoon, and I found the reflections in the glass covered buildings very interesting.
I think I prefer the landscape shot because it shows more buildings and more reflections, but the portrait orientation does focus more on the one building and the dramatic reflection in the center of it.
I’m happy with both of these. I think it makes a difference when you look at photos on the computer where the screen is a landscape orientation. I think if the photos were printed and hung on the wall it would give them more equal footing. Then the portrait orientation would be better at showing the height of the building.
I think I like the portrait orientation has less distractions. My main interest was the reflections, especially the black and white building in the center and the portrait orientation focuses on this more effectively.
This has been an interesting photo challenge. I almost always use the landscape orientation because it works better on a computer screen. Maybe I should break away from this habit more often.
