"spiritofweston" suggested flipping, cropping away sky and a little more contrast. Well, that work too, i think. Do you aggree?
Very, very nice!
I think spirit was on to something..
To be brutally honest I preffered the other, I will leave the score at ten because it would be a bit unfair.
Not a great difference IMO and I "think" I liked it the other way better with largest stone on right.
If you read the forum there is one there about flipping. The opinion on the forum differs from Spiritofwestern. The objects are best viewed on the right NOT left. If you have time it's a great article.
http://hdrcreme.com/forums/9/topics/256 Seems to support what Spiritofweston is saying. If I use the rocks and play connect the dots, my eye moves form right to left.
Thanks everyonne for your comments, especially about flipping. Interesting article. I have never thought much about this when I'm shooting. Maybe my/our mind takes care of this itself, when we compose the image..?
I liked it last time too but now it's better!
What about us - the Jews and Muslims, we read right to left, yet we value a wonderful image when we see one, regardless whether is right or left 1/3 of the image. This one by no means needs a flipping.
To vendenis, about flipping or not, and about the article saying that our mind "scans" from left to right, and about your point that Jews and Muslims that read right to left: I thought about the reading too when I read the article, but if it is true that
...our mind "scans" from left to right, I assume this was "programmed" into our mind long before the invention of writing (probably in Egypt, 3400 BC). I assume this "scanning" of landscapes (and later images) was programmed into our ancestors (hunters)
...brains 100.000 years ago. Or a million years ago. I believe this scanning is still going on, but in other settings
