Fall Wall 2  ~  October 8  [8]
08-OCT-2006 Greg Harp

Fall Wall 2 ~ October 8 [8]

New London, Minnesota

Along the side wall of the Heritage Falls Market in downtown New London.

I couldn't decide which composition I liked better; this one or one more in accordance with the rule of thirds:

other sizes: small medium original

The half and half composition really works well. I must try to remember this!

extraordinary contrast and original composition

Very special composition.

I'm not sure which I like better. I like the abstract nature of the wall with it's converging lines and pattern. I also think it's a beautiful fall tree. The contrast between them is what makes each stand out. I like it in any event.

A curious composition.

I lean toward this shot. It shows more of nature's beauty.
In contrast to the man-made wall it speaks volumes on what humans can acheive and what we can't.

I like both, but prefer the tree more than the wall, so this one is my favorite

I like both, but prefer the tree more than the wall, so this one is my favourite. A close call.

Very effective! V

I like better the composition with a split in half. Interesting contrast between the human made and the natural things.

Interesting composition Greg, I like it. Vote

I prefer the one showing more of the tree. Like the title too. Nice job.
John Beck10-Oct-2006 10:36
I think I like this one best. Beautiful. Just curious, did you do this with the 'rule of thirds' on the left, or in portrait orientation?
joanteno10-Oct-2006 04:38
You made the right choice. Excellent shot!
Linda Willets10-Oct-2006 04:31
like the top one best.. love seeing the changing leaves
Dennis Hoyne10-Oct-2006 03:24
They both work, but I like the top one better, very nice.
petesie10-Oct-2006 03:14
I guess sometime rules are made to be broken. I prefer, and really like, the top one. Well done.
Kathy Pedersen10-Oct-2006 02:25
Interesting shot and lovely contrast! Vote

Great shot. I like the first one. Half and half works well here. vote

Really interesting contrasts. Nice images. Just like there is no crying in Baseball, there are no rules in photography. At least none that shouldn't be broken once in a while :)
Bryan Ramsay10-Oct-2006 00:48
The upper one, while its more symmetrical the tree really makes the shot! -BJ

Great pov! vote

Quit an angle. Well taken.
Beverly Wickersham09-Oct-2006 19:56
Beautiful job. A great contrast with terrific fall colors.

Nice contrast in pattern, material and color. Great shot. Voted.

half and half partition works well for bringing out the difference between these two sides. If you want to emphasze on the autumnal side (or the wall), as suggested by Gray, the golden 1/3 rule should prevail. Just my view as a novice.
Sam Stevenson09-Oct-2006 16:13
I agree with Gary. Really interesting contrast, in any event.
Gary Hebert09-Oct-2006 15:28
I prefer this one Greg... the rule might work with 1/3 wall... :)
