Two stunning images here Karen :0

It is not easy to seperate them, but for me, this just has the edge..

I really enjoyed the subtle tones and hues in this charming photo :)


Kind regards!

Hi Karen,

I agree with Jim here, they are definitely two really nice pictures. For me, I think this composition has the edge because youv'e taken the effort to put the bridge into upper right rule of thirds position, and balance it with the ducks on the left, which to me looks slightly more powerful than the starburst composition of its companion. Regardless, I like them both!

Best Wishes Peter

Many many thanks for all your lovely comments you all have given, Peter, Jim, ~ Marketa and Andy thanks also for your interest and input, it's nice when a photo makes a person think about what they are seeing, thanks also to you Peter I just couldn't decide between the two, I know the second shot contains the "Rule of thirds" but the first shot the ducks were in the golden light of the morning sun, if I moved to the left at this moment I would have lost the shot, thanks for your input, I always appreciate someone else's opinion, thank you for your YSL always appreciated:))

Warm Wishes,
