Quick post: Portrait or Landscape? / by Jana Uyeda

Here are a few shots taken from the West Seattle Water Taxi. I wanted to play with the American flag as it waves in the wind while the water taxi pulls away from the dock. Though I feel they are both successful, I wanted to ask which you prefer - the landscape or portrait shot?

The height of the portrait shot really emphasizes the flag staff, gives a pleasing geometry and I hardly notice what's going on in the background.

The width of the landscape shot really gives a sense of the surrounding area and the white waves foaming beneath the water taxi. I like this shot because I can see the city in the background and the white lines give me a sense of direction.

So what do you think? Portrait or landscape?

Hope everyone had a great and productive weekend. Can't wait to see your work. Mahalo!
