13 Horizontal and vertical frames

Most of the images below were taken in and around the Melbourne CBD and the last few  are Port Douglas in Queensland. Equipment used was a Nikon DSLR and predominately a 28-300 lens, but there are a number of shots with a 50mm and 20mm lenses as well. In all I took many shots and it took me 2 days to take the Melbourne images that I was happy with, a much longer exercise than I gave it credit when reading the brief…

Image2 – my choice here is the vertical frame showing the glimps of the tower block through the trees, giving more context to the bank branches surroundings.VH2a

Image 3 – again my preference here is the vertical image, with the old clock tower visible.VH3b

Image 7 – is one of the images where I have a strong preference for the vertical shot, being able to see the buildings of the CBD towering above in the background brings a good contrast to the water level cafe.

Image 12 – I deliberately included a glimpse of the sky in the horizontal shot to make it less abstract but on the vertical shot not like the same composition so I excluded the sky.DSC_1623_DxO

Image 14 – the vertical image would be my choice, showing the CBD and new building works in the background.

The more abstract images such as 11,13,15 and 17 work well in either format but I still have my preferences i.e. in image 17 I like the apparent depth of the vertical shot, with more cherries out of focus in the background. The majority of the images work well in the vertical or horizontal and either could be chosen depending on intended use. But there are a number I have noted above were I have a distinct preference.
