A late post today, I know.
Alas, I’ve had a busy day. I had a forum on job hunting today, ran extra errands, actually found a geocache and figured out what the rattle is in my car (and that it will cost me $100 to fix).
When I got home, I was a bit blocked when it came to coming up with an idea for a post.
So, I’m going to do something I could have held for Foto Friday, but I’m interested in some opinions.
I went out for a photo day yesterday and got a bunch of photos that I really liked. Being I’m doing the 366 Project this year, I’m always looking for something to be able to use. I went to a friend’s place where there’s an amazing set of small waterfalls. The water was flowing. There was a little bit of ice and it was a nice setting.
Alas, the lighting at the top of the falls was odd and I didn’t have a remote for the camera.
But, I took a bunch of shots. When I sat down to look at them all, I had a very hard time deciding which to use and which not to use. Below are the three I considered, in order of how I rated them. The third one was eliminated first and then I waffled on the other two. The final choice came down to two things — I really loved the look of the first one and the second one I wanted to have look better and knowing I could go back to it at some point to get a better shot.
So here’s the three I had to choose from. What do you think? Did I make the right choice? What’s your favorite image of the three and why? Post your thoughts in the comment section!

Number 2 says the waterfall addict!
I, too, am a waterfall addict. But that’s probably why I didn’t choose it. I want to show it in a better light as my “photo of the day!”
As an amateur, I’m going with the standard….the waterfall. Calm and beautiful to look at. But the Folgers can is a very close second. I love how it’s elevated to an art form and also how it blends in so harmoniously with nature (an unexpected surprise for litter).

That’s why it was a tough call in regard to which one to pick. I liked both. I just think I can get a better shot of those falls. Or, at least, hope I can! And agreed on the can. But it’s not so much litter as it’s on their property. I think it was BB gun target practice and other things over time! 🙂
The waterfall photo is beautiful – but I think I might have plumped for the top one too – I love rusty old things, especially in a natural setting.

That I fully agree with. Rusty old things in a natural or rural setting really do capture the eye!
In order of liking…
Waterfall- I like the motion blur in the falls and how the waterfall cuts down the photo.
Can – I think I would have liked the can if it where full past the brim of pine cones and maybe a vertical picture. I LOVE old rusty things though, gives the photo a lot of character.
Ball – very bight!
It was tough for me not to go with the waterfall one and I knew most people would select it as their top pick. But I’m such a perfectionist with waterfalls that I think I can get it way better with a remote and better lighting! 😀
(I wish the can had more pinecones, too, but didn’t want to add to it and take away from it’s natural setting!)
