Your valued opinions sought....
« on: June 09, 2013, 11:17:31 PM »
I know there's not a huge amount of difference, but notwithstanding differences in contrast or blackness (which I can sort) - which of these do you prefer.

I need to get one blown up to a large size for our AA2A exhibition, and I've been staring at them too long - can see faults and good in both, but can only afford to print one up.

Any preferences?



(yes, they do go out of focus in parts, they're photograms made from wave-form glass, so some parts of the glass are touching the photographic paper, and others are away, hence the out of focus bits.

No 1 - No 2 looks more like an xray, no 1 is sinuous and 'glassy' iykwim?

I like the textural deyail in 1 and the tonal contrat in2, so i would ask ypurelf how they are going to be viewed. If it's from a distance the tonal contrast would be my choice but if people are close enough to see the detail id go for 1

Number one for me too, number 2 is too out of focus for me my eyes didn't want to stay and look at it.

I like no 1 the best it has more detail where as no 2  is more stark.

I think number 1 too :) I love the bottom part of the second photo, but prefer the first overall :)

Shoot me down everyone else but I am more drawn to No 2 - it works better for me from a distance and there is lots of detail to be seen close up too  :)
