I am planning on entering these in our local agricultural show.

I am not sure which of the two of these to enter, what do you think

I love this one, but I will need to crop it a little to get the best picture I can out of it, they were taken in croatia and slovakia respectively.

I like the first one because of the wonky every which way light beams and it has great colour too!

You must have some fabulous pictures edel!

I like the top one, too! I like the clouds, and the bird silhouette in the second one, but I'm thinking cropping the picture will unbalance it a little (presuming you're cropping out the power lines. If you're keeping the power lines, then I'm way off).  Wink

Would love to see more of the pictures from your trip!

Definitely the top one out of the first two. It's much more dynamic with the angle and overall looks thought out. The second one looks a little more random and static - not as exciting. Though if it was vertical instead and perfectly centered on the middle wooden beam, it would be a great shot (not that it's not a nice picture anyways, but it could be better).
How were you planning to crop the one of the bird? I think it would also be better as a vertical shot and if you have it as a very large file you could crop it that way. Personally, I would crop it from the first pole on the left close to center (where the break in the skyline is along the bottom) to a little past the last bit sticking out of the roof on the right, so that the bird is slightly off to the left. I'm really biased towards verticals though - they're inherently more exciting than horizontals (the wide base of horizontal shots makes them "steady" and more like our normal vision)
Hope that helps  Smiley
Good luck in the show!

N30Nb100d Yes I think you are right about the verticals and spot on too I think about the cropping on the second one.

I'm with the group on this one: #1 for sure. It's not only the most dynamic, but the richness of the colour is missing in the second version.

What i love about photography espically with people and animals is that it supposed to capture a feeling or story with them. Personally with that last photo I think it could use a bit of contrast editing and maybe a bit of sharpening. but otherwise the story of this bird is being told in the story. He is on top of his world on that pole and he is the ruler of his city. I just kinda think it adds to the photo that you see where he lives.
