  1. I normally prefer tighter, closer compositions. I like when a subject is bold and in your face, and getting rid of superfluous space and getting right into the meat of the main subject is usually the way to do it.

    But in the topmost photo, the distance IS the story. The extra space in the foreground gives the pinecone a forlorn perspective. You almost want to walk across the great divide and pick it up so you can protect it.

    The one on the bottom doesn’t seem to have that same sense of drama.

    I know, I’m weird. Sorry 🙂

    Ugh. This is hard – I like both for their position – but the first one keeps drawing my eyes to it. I think that’s my favorite. However the 2nd one is just as amazing!!
