Portraits of Crex Meadows

phantom lake crex willowsFriends, i received a new lens and need to try it out on landscapes.  Now I have always considered landscapes of Crex Meadows to be rather uninteresting. The land and the water are very flat and i think that landscapes should reveal layers of color as the eye travels back into the distance with a clear foreground element.  This first image is of phantom lake and the second of a willow flat both leading into a cumulus sky.  I like the second image because the willows are the foreground leading into the sky, but in the first image I have no clear foreground element and the horizon is dead center. Which image works for you? til Tomorrow MJ

  1. so I am with the crowd, the first image, but maybe like Bob I would have had more sky, which is rather striking …

  2. I pick the first too, but I think I would have shown more sky and less of the water in the forground. The clouds seem to be the best subject.

  3. My preference is the first image.

    I find the first one more appealing to the eye…. but they’re both good!

  5. I also like the first. There is something about the blue stripes in the foreground that is peaceful and beautiful.

  6. I prefer the first image.
