Sky Watch Friday




I was mesmerized for a few moments by what looked like a mirror reflection of clouds! Just had to pull over and capture it. When it came time to post, I debated with myself about this one. To Crop or Not to Crop? What do you think????

I think it looks more natural uncropped. I think you should keep it the way it is, just brilliant!

I only know that both are beautiful - the sky is so intensive blue!

Both are great - but on this one, I think i like the uncropped one best. It adds more interest to the photo.

Great photos! It does look like a mirror image, I think the uncropped is the one. Happy SWF!

They are both beautiful! I'd stick with not cropped in this case, I like the open feel showing whe whole scene. The wonderful thing is that you can have your cake and eat it too. Cropped and uncropped!

Well firstly you did a great job on the crop. Photographers are like hairdressers they have a tendancy to want to chop aaway to much. I like both but I'd go with the second one for the open feel. Just shoWs you though what two very different scenes you can get from one image.

Louise said...

Both beautiful. The color is fabulous. I like the one withe the highway better which might be a lesson to me to not always try to avoid getting a highway in the picture!

Thanks for your wonderful comments! I was leaning toward the "no crop" because of the balance. The only way to balance the cropped one seemed to be to cut away too much of that great blue sky and I didn't want to do that. I feel validated! ;-)
