A Different View



I am frequently impressed with how multiple photographers can shoot the same subject and obtain quite differing results.

Not only do we experience this effect in photography but also in life in general as very seldom will two individuals witnessing the same event recount the exact same story.

While shooting with Chad, we shot the same maple leaves with very different results. I will not risk embarrassment by asking you to vote for “Best of Show” :) but rather click HERE to view the variation in our images.

I love both shot's, and your's is equally beautiful, glad you didn't ask for a vote, It would have been difficult, and a tie!! That's one of the great thing's about photography dont you think, each photo,is the image as seen from the photographer through his or her eye's! Even if the same object is photographed by someone else, it is seen diffrently, and photo's are iterputed diffrently too..that's what make's it so great!! And your right...so is life!

Great post as usual!!

This is lovely...as is Chad's. Isn't it neat how differently we 'behold' things?

Love how the light is captured in the leaves

I like the way the sunlight is isolated on the red leaves. Nice shot and I can't vote too hard..

I reconised the shot right away, as I have already seen Chads... I'll might not comment on who's I like best and why, but I will say I would have been over joyed to have took either one of them.
On a lighter note:
I also agree with what you are saying, I was out with Jane last week shopping... she saw a pair of shoes she said was a bargain... I saw a pair that were far to costly.. ha! She won of course.

I recall reading in an outdoor magazine when we were young that a group of hunters had gone on a photographic safari to one of our National Parks (I think it was Yellowstone). All had photographed the same wildlife, but according to the writer there was a wide difference in framing, etc. between everyones shots.

It is always amazing to me when you go out shooting with others and come back and look at the images. There are never two alike!!!. I shoot with a friend on the mainland when I am there and of course with Annie when I am home in Hawaii. We all find it amazing!!! :):).. I totally love checking out your blog and now the family is blogging. That is just soooooooo cool. :) Your's and Chad's leaves are equally nice. I really love the fall colors on the mainland. Nothing much here as far as fall colors go!! :) :) Aloha, Renee :)
