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.

    They are both great but I prefer the first one.

    I like the colors in the 1st one much better. I know the haze is all the rage right now but I have never gotten in to it.

    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!

      Rachel – that is a great point and I actually was considering that myself – I wondered if it that was part of why the 2nd did not feel right with that edit.

    I also prefer the vibrancy of the colours in the first photo. I like the haze but I prefer it when used on a photo with pastel colours.

    The first one- I see the second one pretty often among photogs- do you think its a trend?

    I like number 1.

    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?

    I like the first… the second one looks too ‘fake’ to me since the background is so light or ‘washed out’ compared to the subject.

    I like the first one better!

  10. November 21, 2013 at 2:32 pm —

    1st one…

    I like #1. I tend to like the colors of fall to really shine!
