I was out with a friend in the City the other day, roaming around to see what interesting shots we could get, and I took these shots of a workman taking a quiet moment to have his lunch. Of course, as soon as he sat down, he was badgered by pigeons!
Of the shots I took, my friend and I disagree about which shot we prefer. She likes the shot above because it is a very wintry scene: you can see that there are very few leaves on the tree. She also likes that it is just him and the tree or him and the bicycle. I suppose it is a series of pairs: there are a pair of pigeons as well (not counting the one sitting on the bench). His sitting position mirrors the chairs above.
But I prefer the shot below because of the groups of three in it: the man, the tree and bike and the woman in the background on her phone. There are also three pigeons and there is something in each third of the frame. I also like the depth within the frame and the fact that you can see more of his face.
Does anyone else have an opinion? I would love to read them.
