Default Top of the Arch, St. Louis

I shot this at sunset from the top of the Arch in St. Louis. The windows were so thick and dirty! I tried to find a clean spot to shoot from. I simply held the lens shield against the window for this shot.

Shot with a Sony 707, 1/30, f2.0, ISO 320. This was taken just after I purchased the camera. Had I known it would automatically choose the ISO setting, I would have forced it to stay at 100.

Which one is better?

I prefer the second one because the orange colour is more consistant throughout the photograph. I think that makes it more balanced.

I like the second one as well. It's a bit darker, which seems to bring out the orange glow more.

ps. I have to say that I didn't realize what the difference was for a few moments. Weird.

Hi darrell1___

I vote for the second also

Its colors are richer, more saturated and hint at the innate
warmth (literally) of a city.
