If I had wings

I’m entering one of these photos in an exhibition next month but I can’t decide which one to submit.  If you have the time, I’d love to know which one you prefer.

That's a hard one! They are all beautiful. Personally I adore the first one. I love how the hair is highlighted by the sun. Dreamy and beautiful!

Michele, you are an amazing photographer! These photos are all magic...but if you're going to twist my arm, I'd have to say the first photo. The light is beautiful :-)

Gorgeous! The light around the hair in the first photo is beautiful, but if I had to choose I'd say the second one. Just love the movement of her hair and skirt!

Good luck!

PS. Dave says the middle one, too! =)

I would go with the first one as well. It's a bit lighter over all.

Sandi said...

These are beautiful photos Michele...I love the 2nd one because of the way her hair is framed...good luck.

My husband says the second one without any doubt and he is a graphic designer so he knows better than me. Personally I love the first one because it is so unreal and the clouds and light are magical. But if I had to choose, I would say the second one too because of the movement and composition.

Thank you so much everyone! I'm a little bit closer to making a decision now. I really like the second one but I wish it had the light that is in the first one ... if only I could combine the two.

Michele 1 or 2....i like the fullness of the skirt in 2...but the butterfly quality of 1. It's a toss up...go with your heart.

Ash said...

For what it's worth, Michele, the light in the first one is gorgeous and ethereal...but what drew me in with the second photo IS the darker tone. The composition of the second one is just amazing...and the darker tone/contrast just seems to add to the unbridled feel that comes through from the girl/woman (is that you??) on the swing.

Good luck. Whichever one you pick will be an amazing contender!

Middle one! (A photographer & editor here.) Wonderful warmth in these photos, they give me a sense of freedom.

SpiralStone said...

At least I have a few more weeks to decide! I appreciate all your comments ... thank you!

Ash, it's my daughter, she just turned 11, she drifts off into her own little world of flight when she is on a swing :).

Ash said...

Wow! She has really shot up! I figured it was her...but she's so tall! Oh to be so fearless again!

I like the lighting in #1 but the pose in #2 :/ Since imagery is more important to me than lighting in photos, I like #2!

I keep getting drawn to the first one -- I like the hair flowing, but my thought (for what it's worth) it distracts from her journey to the sky -- to me the photo is about a journey (not sure why).

Hey Michele,
which one did you submit?
I love the second one. I prefer the light in it. It makes it dramatic, stormy and magical. It adds a mysterious quality to the figure doing something wild in the image.
I love it. You are very talented x mm

I think I like the first as it has a more ethereal kind of feel. I do however like the hair in the second, but I think the first really has a lightness the others do not. Good luck whatever you choose.
