Best Shot Monday: A Bit of Flare

I have two shots that are almost the same, and yet different. And I can't pick between the two...what's your vote for the better shot?

HipMomma said...

Wow, look at you! I like the first better but they are both great.

Kara!!! said...

Love the first - just gorgeous flair :)

Christina said...

Oooh, they are both so lovely! I often havce a hard time choosing, too. I think I'm going with #1!

Jen said...

My vote is for #1 too. Great shot.

Blueberry said...

they are both beautiful but i like the first one better!

Megan said...

i vote for #1 -- lovely flare.

carrie said...

yep, i think i like #1 better too - the flare is a little more prominent and you can see the clouds really well!

Jen said...

By far the first!!
Love your blog :)

Jaimee said...

I guess I'm the odd ball out on this one because I just love that second one! Both are great!

By looking at the comments I see I'm going to be the oddball. I like the second shot. The flare doesn't take up the entire picture and brings emphasis to the branch and the clouds in the background. They're both great though. :)

Joanna said...

I dont think I can choose a favorite out of the two either! They atre both great in a different ways. Dont you hate/love it when that happens? :)

cathurynn said...

well, i like the flair in the first and it's a more typical composition, i think. but i really like the lines of the branch in the second one, and the star-like flair. tough, but i think i'm going for the second one! :)

Dawn said...

the second - a gorgeous silhouette!!

chaoticfamily said...

They are both so similar yet oh so different - I think I like #2 the best - great job!! :)

niobe said...

They're both great, but I think I slightly prefer the composition of the second one.

I love flair, so much.

I have a question, though...is this bad for your camera? My husband (who knows nothing about photography) swears that it's bad for the sensors.

Cara said...

I like the first one best. They are both great, something about the closeness of the first one appeals to me more.
I have yet to try and capture flare, I need to get on the ball.

I love the first one, with the bigger flare. Gorgeous!

Kimberly said...

Ooh, another "which one is better?" quandry. Hmm, I think I like the composition of the first one better, but love the rays on that second one too!

Maya said...

First one for me! The more flare the more I love it! Awesome shots!

Golightly said...

Oh yeah, that's hard. I think I like the first one better. Lovely sun flare!

Arizaphale said...

First definitely, leads your eye more. Did that make sense?

Whimsy said...

I vote for the first one - though they are both just gorgeous!
