Which Edit Do You Like Best?


Let’s keep things light today and take a quick survey.  Which edit do you prefer?

Both are exactly the same, except the second one used two additional Photoshop actions (mostly on the background).  I am curious to see if you see this image the way I do – but of course, there is no right or wrong answer.

    I like the second one – the girl is the subject/focus rather than the whole landscape. In the first pic, the leaves are the ‘punch’ for me, in the 2nd pic, the girl is the punch for me. That said, the vibrancy in the 1st pic is gorgeous and you couldn’t go wrong w/ either pic.

    Side-by-side the first one next the second one look a bit washed out. However, focusing only on the second one, I believe I like the second one better! I vote #2

    I LOVE #2! They are both beautiful but the second one is stunning. It looks like a true work of art and I definitely agree that the subject stands out more in the second one. Gorgeous!

    I like #1 the best, but honestly, I tend to like atmospheric haze and I think it might be the ‘crop’ that’s throwing the second one off for me. I think were it cropped wider, the girl would really pop out of the hazy leafy background and be the focus and the leaves would create a cool tunnel effect around her, but because its cropped so close to her, the whole thing is a bit distracting and washed out. I’m bemoaning my broke status right now, though, cause ALL of the actions used look truly outstanding! Love your stuff!

    I love color, and I love rich colors – especially in the fall. So it’s number one for me. I think the second edit would be great on a paler photo, maybe a winter scene or a beach scene?
