    1700+ shots to go through and its really hard................

    A different view

    [quote=Pol;bt357]What a joy when you can't decide, eh ... LOL If I have to whittle things down I usually ask David which one(s) to use.

    If I was forced to choose just the one between the two you've posted here, I'd choose the top one. My main reason would be simply because it shows slightly more of the overall view of the scene. It's also just a tad more moody than the second one.

    Mind you - I'd definitely have [I]both [/I]printed. I have Photobox 7x5 prints for almost all but my grottiest pics. That's what I'd be doing if I'd just come back from a trip like yours.[/quote]

    I think I would probably go for the lower one, as whilst the overall exposure is not as good as top one, and the mountains look a little more dramatic on the top one, I do feel that it makes more of the water beyond the island, and as such conveys a truer perspective of the overall scene. Let's be fair though, they are both gaspers, and if I was American, I would think they were AWESOME, and probably say "OMG" !

    I did enjoy using it Josh, and I suspect for much the same reasons as you like using it. I just wish the kit lens was a little wider.

    A few years ago I had a similar problem when my wife returned from a trip like yours across Canada. Short list, short list and short list again was the only way we managed to whittle them down to DVD slideshow. Took forever and still some times look back at the project and wonder if we got it right. Good luck to you. I'm currently sorting through 200 + wedding shots trying to select whats best to put in an album.
