Two different photos – from Blue Mountains, Australia.

Which is best?

    A belated welcome home 🙂 (have you been visiting common friends in Sydney?)
    Concerning the photos – I like both, but would have preferred the closest hills a bit darker to emphasize the nearness. I like the foreground in the second one, but I feel that the branches on the upper left side are too small to constitute a proper framing. Maybe you can cop a little differently (more or less). It is a long way to go back!

      Thank you, Rune, for your comments! I think you are right about foreground in the second picture!
      We did not visit friends in Sydney, we were “just” tourists and spent some days in the city to get used to traveling again and living with just a backpack as a “home “, then we rented a car for 3 weeks and drove south and then west along “Great Ocean Road” – and finally we were in the middle of the country and toured with various bus tours. Then we flew from Darwin to Borneo and finally to the Philippines….

    I like the top one, it’s more moody and abstract. You are making me realize how little I know about Australia.

      Thank you for your comment – I will post much more about Australia in the coming months 🙂

    Two good shots, but I like the second picture the best. At the right corner you can see some of the special mountains you find in the area of Blue Mountains. The trees in the foreground gives image depth. That’s good!
    I wish you a happy Easter!

    They’re both lovely, but I really like how you’ve framed the mountains in the second image.

    It’s a difficult decision… I like them both 🙂

    I honestly can’t choose between these 2 images – both are beautiful in their own way. I love the framing with the trees in the second one, but I also like the layers, view and perspective in the top one.

      I had the some of the same thoughts. But I appreciate your and the other comments where more observations and nuances appear. Tomorrow I will add two more here – with the same dilemmea ….

    I didn’t know Australia had scenery like that. I thought it was all semi-arid desert???

    About the photos, obviously the top one is better, the second one fails because two incongruous elements (fore and background) don’t help it each other at all. It might have worked with some overhanging shrubbery to complete the framing, to give a sense of ’emerging’ from dense bush to see the majestic vista. Anyway, to recap, top one better. 🙂 Great shot.

      Thank you for visiting and commenting here, Nick! If you look here in coming posts you will see, that in the 3 states of Australia that I visited, the landscapes are SO different! And that the outback in Central Australia was green and NOT red like a desert – for the first time in many years!

    I prefer the first photo, but both of them are beautiful.

    Both are wonderful. The first one conveys better – in my opinion – the vastness of this country and the seemingly endless sky. Very well done, truels.
