Taken outside Ripley's House of Wax in Grand Prairie, TX. Canon 20D, 24-70 2.8L, f7, 1/400th. First the vertical orientation.

Hi Walter,


I haven't seen you for a little while.
I like these shots.
What is this guy made out of? Are those pieces of car bumpers?

Hagar
Still living out of boxes following our move West. Not much time for photography for the past month. Yes, those are indeed car bumpers. The T-Rex is one of 4 or 5 prehistorics displayed outside of Ripley's.

Nice to see a direct comparison of formats. The subject matter is clearly vertical in nature, and viewing it must have drawn a viewer's eyes vertically upwards to the sky.

Nevertheless, I find the landscape layout more pleasing, possibly because more sky emphasises the figure towering upwards into it.

Thanks for the beautifully illustrated demonstration.

PS. On additional thoughts, I realise I would like a landscape version, but with more of the figure in it.

My preference is for the vertical shot. The horizontal shot has too much "emptiness".
