Couldn't choose... :?

In camera preset B&W hard contrast. I really love this one!

Kind regards, René

You're right, hard to choose - but I like #2 better, it has a nicer balance to it, and the abstract elements of the tree and the container seem to connect.

The photo of the garbage collectors, and the pigeon are also nice - good luck with the GR, I am also a new owner. Do you PP a lot? I can't seem to improve on the photos coming out of the camera, but you can certainly get a wide range of "looks" shooting raw, which is new for me.

I also agree: hard to choose! The first one gives context, the latter simplicity and more impact. Think I will sit on the fence on this one! ;)

Both nice, both different & both 'worthy'.

They are both great image of an interesting find.

The main thing that bothers me with #1 is the "Leaning Tower of Pisa" and the car.
I think if the car wasn't there (that's hard to deal with) and the Tower was vertical or corrected for vertical it would be a stronger image and put the wall in context better.

Neither are bad but
I think #2 works better for me, I'm with Quester.

No offense mentioned towards #1 but adding +1 for #2 for its simplicity and better focus on the main element - the tree.

Thanks for the comments.

I think I'll stay with the seccond one for my portfolio.

Usually I spent quite some time at PP, but this one is straight out of de cam.
Only resize en borderplugin/minimal sharpening in photoshop.

Kind regards, René
