Paula over at Lost in Translation has asked us to post photos of the same scene in landscape and portrait format. I often forget that I have a choice, and landscape is jut there isn’t it? I hope this challenge will make me thing more often about how totally different an image can be, just with a turn of the camera.
Any thoughts or preferences?

That sky, the glorious sky! The second one has it all.
I also prefer the second photo: More close up detail of bridge and stream, and as “morsel” exclaimed” That sky, the glorious sky”
Both are splendid, but that view of the stream and the revealing of the foot bridge make the second shot special.
Ooh, I like that second image…the close up detail of stream leading up to the bridge Excellent pairing, Gilly!
Both are really breathtaking, Gilly. I’ll choose the second one.
We’re all beaming at that second one Gilly. It’s a beauty! Happy Sunday xxx
Great selection for the challenge, Gilly. In the first photo, my eyes focus on the sky. The second bring the bridge and stream to view plus it looks like a painting. My vote is for #2.
Seems I am the odd one out. I like the textures in the portrait image, but for me the landscape wins – the contrails across the sky create sections which to me draw focus to the curve of the bridge and the triangular shape of the grass. Hey ho… 🙂
The second one has my vote, too.
Each works for me in its own way, perhaps because the subject is a landscape. I do have a preference for pictures of flowers though – portrait shots of those often seem much more striking.
They are really different, the first one has a calmer composition and s-curve in landscape, the second one reveals more. Very interesting choice and a good example for this theme, Gilly. Thank you.
Pretty cool. 🙂
The second it is. Brilliant shots Gilly.
Portrait .. is my fav!
Both are awesome ! 🙂
