(Olympus E-3 7-14mm at 10mm (2x crop factor), ISO 400, Exposure 1/15 sec @f/4.0)

After posting yesterday’s image, I took another look at the raw shot and thought that there were some things that I could do with the original orientation that would also make for a more interesting shot. The horizontal shot I posted yesterday is more focused on the person, whereas the taller shot I think does a better job of showing the person in the context of the surrounding architecture. I used Silver Efex Pro2 to convert to black and white and to add a vignette and sepia tone. I think the vignette helps draw the eye to the person, while still being able to see a larger context.

So, which do you prefer? Yesterday’s horizontal crop or today vertical orientation?
