Comparisons. . .

I was editing some photos the other day and it made me wonder just which view I preferred of some photos. . . Let me show you some examples. Some of them I much prefer "before they were reduced" although they don't show the whole flower. Thus, the close up is more eye catching. A few look better to me with some distance. What do you think?

The closeups looks like completely different shots comparing with the original. They're all wonderful but I do like the closeup more on a few of them.

It depends on the flower. Some look better close up..while others don't look as good in their close up shots. They are great photos.

Those closeups are beautiful. This really makes me want to learn how to photoshop.

I like both views. It is interesting to see the detail on the close ups.I especially like the one that has sunshine hitting the right side and the one with the single Bee.

I love cropping my flower shots... you really end up with some compelling images oftentimes. Occasionally I will prefer the "bigger picture," but not as often.

I like both views, but especially love the detail in the closeups.

Each are beautiful, in their own way. Myself, I like the detail, but the others are great too. What kind of camera do you use?...and thanks for stoppin' by my blog!

Paulie, I always like the close-ups--your city flowers and my wildflowers. But the longer shots give a perspective that the close-ups don't always have. Sometimes it's a matter of the composition. I like to shoot--or crop--my flower photos to get an interesting composition or an interesting angle, whether close or far.

I'm getting my wildflowers organized, BTW, so that they can serve as an identification tool for hiking.
