Which is better . . .

Post  JimLewis on Sat Jan 05, 2013 10:29 pm

This?



Or this?



I tried this elsewhere and got near unanimity.

I like the first one, the way it is. What's making you question it?

Definitely 1st one for me too. Fantastic example of a well done windswept.

1st one for me too. The extra tree makes the other tree seem wider.

Between the 2, I prefer the first. But I feel like there is too much space between the two groups. Maybe growing some additional branches into the empty space would help?



Or, remove the right most tree (your second image) and grow out the remaining right most tree, something like this:



Not sure if that little tree is strong enough to do that? Anyway, feel free to ignore or rip apart these ideas...just playing around with photoshop.

first --- significantly more movement.
i don't think the space between the groups is in issue --- at least, as illustrated.

add: oh, stuff... i was looking at coh's virtual when i said the space was fine. i agree, something is needed to pull the eye through there.

Jim
The first one, I like the negitive space between the group and the lone tree.

Well, maybe someone could, but I can't change the spacing because this is a raft. You all came up with the same result as elsewhere.

I was getting tired of that gap between the two groups of trees.

But I guess I'll leave it be.

just like everyone else i prefer the first one more but like the suggestion of filling in that space a little...

its always hard to tell from a picture alone...so take this for what it's worth...but it looks like the right most tree has either another tree growing behind it or a second trunk???? either way, you may be able to lift that just a tad to help with that empty space if you dint want to grow out the other branches...

honestly...either way you have a really nice windswept...very nice indeed.

Interesting one as it is. What about cascadeing a bit? Not to extreme, to tie it all together. Even root over rock, as if the tree had fallen on a rocky mountain side, years later to be eroded and exposed. If you want to endevor into all that?


(windswept though of course)

Hi Jim,
I like the first image. Trying playing with some rocks if you are tired of the open spaces.

I like the first one too. If you are tiring of the gap between the two, how about changing the orientation slightly? A small clockwise rotation perhaps??

That's a thought. Thanks.

I'm more interested in how you are going to shorten the pot from number one to number two.
