I like both images but for some reason the 1st one is the preferred. I think I prefer to see the silhouette of the foreground.
I'm just reading a book now call "The Perfect Exposure" and in that the author talks quite a lot of what we expect to see in images makes a big difference as to whether we like them or not. This is something I had never considered before. So I guess I prefer the 1st one because its probably closer to what I expect to see at sunrise ????
If you want to edit any of my images to demonstrate points/techniques to either myself or others please feel free to do so.
Still learning with Canon 40D, 28-135mm, 100-400mm L and Elements 6.
Any Advice greatfully received.
