    3 slightly different shots..curious as to what you guys prefer. I like the closest shot, seems more intimate, but the other shots show a bit more of the environment and context.

    These shots were taken with the ancient G1 and Oly 40-150mm... which I found surprising useful and sharp. Fairly fast focusing to boot.

    C&C welcome. :)

    I'm drawn to the 2nd shot - he seems to be looking out into the valley. It's a shame the sky is blown out, but I suppose it's better that the man is properly exposed.

    I think the first shot would be more interesting with framing that showed movement or otherwise creates some tension, but nice sharp detail is there nonetheless. I immediately noticed the Nautica sweater.

    Very nice. I agree, the second shot is great.

    I like the first one myself; it has more personality.

    +1 on the second shot.
    But maybe a little bit more color pop, like the first image? Or maybe that's just me. :wink:

    It's the second shot for me by a hair...

    It's more personal in shot one as we can see his face.

    Good stuff.
