    In general I prefer the first, the blacks seem deeper and the pose suggests action. As a portrait I would prefer the second as you can see more of the face. :thumbup:

  3. Hard to choose. #1 shows a direct connection between the subject and the background (building). #2 is good because you can still see the camera in the shot, and the man looking for somewhere to point it. #1 is a shot of the moment, #2 is about the anticipation of the moment.

    My first thought was for #1, but when I squinted hard at the pictures on my iPhone and saw the half-cocked camera at the bottom of #2, that one got my vote.

    Thank you, Luckypenguin, you expressed it very well. My intent was to photograph him making a shot (which I did), but his expression made me make the 2nd shot.
    By the way, I meant to ask you, are there really penguins in Australia?
     
  5. Oh, there's plastic penguins to be sure, and even some real live ones in the south-east tip. They feel most put out when the noisy MotoGP circus rolls in to Philip Island.

    I really like the first one better. I seems easier to connect to, because I understand whats going on.
