Sky Watch Friday

This week we have a Sky Watch photo of someone watching the sky! My lovely wife in the chair, enjoying the beautiful sunrise over Atlantic Beach, Florida earlier this month.

Due to the narrower focus of the portait shot the shot loses some of the depth of orange color compared to the landscape image, but I prefer the composition of the portrait. Oh well, we can't win all the time, can we? :)

Visit the Sky Watch blog for links to all the other blogs, where I am sure you will find more than just another day at the beach.

It is all a matter of taste and preferences. They are both good compositions, but the landscape gave me more a feeling of peace and quiet; the other was more intense to me.

I agree with Rune "It is all a matter of taste and preferences."
It is not that easy to add something special by the way to a landsacpe/sky watch photo. The first one is perfect, the dark silhoutte is just there, not dominating and not in the center.
Good job ****
