which is better?



I took both these photos while walking down the street in New York City. I have a definite preference for which one I think is better.

What do you think?

First photo is much more interesting than the second. First gets my vote!

The lines in the first one add far more interest to it!

Yup, I gotta go with the first one, also--like the lines of the scaffolding and the different paces implied by the vehicles and pedestrians. I LOVE New York!

I always enjoy looking at your photos. The first one certainly captured my eye when I first entered your blog. Compared to the first, the second one seems to have a big "gap" in it. The only benefit I see in the gap is that it enables you to see the graphics within the DKNY logo ... but I still find the first pic more interesting.

I'm not sure it's a matter of better; it depends on what you're after. The first one is a NY street scene with all the miscellany and energy of midtown. You couldn't mistake it for anywhere else in the world. The second one has a strong focal point - the DKNY ad - and no question, your eye goes right to the billboard. This is a much cleaner, less cluttered photo.
Less interesting but more focused. Again - depends on your purpose.
