Thank You Gourdo


It is Thanksgiving weekend here in the great white north. Those of you wondering why we do it earlier here in Canada won't get a satisfactory answer from me. I think it has something to do with the fact that our harvest comes a bit earlier in the year, due to the frigid climate (you know: igloos, dog sleds...).


Today I would like to post this photo to say thank you to my employer, Gordon Campbell, the Premier (Canadian version of a Governor) of British Columbia. Bethany and I work for the provincial government, and would like to thank Gordo for providing our employment.

We took the kids to the pumpkin patch yesterday where a table sporting a variety of ugly vegetables caught my eye. I need your help though. I can't decide which version of this image is better. The top (square) one is a bit sharper, but it includes a few distractions, such as the brown 'squigly' thing in the bottom right corner. The second (rectangular) photo places much more emphasis on the crossing stems, which is my favourite part of the image. What do you think; square, rectangle, or "doesn't matter, this photo is just plain stupid"?

It's tough, I like both almost equally, but I think the top one is just a tad more to my liking.

Great colors, love how you filled the frame! Without any question, the top. I really like the square format.

I have to go against the grain and stay that the rectangular one is better. It draws more attention to the crossing stems, which is my favorite part also.

Hey Timmy, I realized why my Pathfinder was broken into. They stole my camera. I couldn't find it the last few days, and then I realized that I had taken it into work. Lame eh?

I really like the bottom one myself. Much simpler and more defined.

A colorful harvest! Both shots would do well framed and hung side by side.

Tim, I really like the bottom one. Much more contained arrangement, but still has the splashes of wonderful autumn colour. One thing though....anyone who lives in B.C. talking of "harsh" Canadian winters!!!??....you've gotta visit me in JANUARY here in Winnipeg! :-)

Hi Timmybomb,

Me again. Definitely the rectangle - A much better composition!!

It seems like you put some thought into the rectangle - you made a photo. The square reminds me of a snapshot - good, but anyone could do it.

unklrbrt

ps. another potential!
