This week’s challenge: One Shot, Two Ways.
On top of one of the 7 hills of Marseilles, the very one that supports and holds the dearest Notre-Dame de la Garde Basilica, you have a magnificent view of the Frioul islands and the If Castle (where the infamous Count of Monte Cristo was held prisoner).
The portrait format of the picture shows quite more of the view and gives it the perspective it needs; at least, that’s how I felt at the moment of shooting and I’m much happier with the second shot. What do you think?
[Es] A la cumbre de una de las 7 colinas de Marsella, la en dónde se encuentra la Basílica Notre-Dame de la Garde, tienen una vista panorámica de las islas de Frioul así como del Castillo If (en cuál guardaron al famoso Conde de Monte Cristo).
El formato retrato de la foto muestra más que el otro formato y le da más perspectiva; a lo menos, así lo siento yo y me gusta mucho más la segunda foto. ¿Qué opinan?
[Fr] Depuis les hauteurs de l’un des 7 collines de Marseille, celle-là même où se trouve la Basilique Notre-Dame de la Garde, vous avez une vue imprenable sur les îles du Frioul et le Château d’If (où fut enfermé le non moins fameux Conte de Monté Cristo).
La photo prise en mode « portrait » – à la verticale – comprend davantage de vue et donne plus de perspective à la scène; en tous cas, c’est ce que j’ai ressenti à ce moment-là et, de fait, préfère cette prise. Qu’en pensez-vous?

Fabulous illustration of the challenge to show the subject two ways – these are obviously the same place, but such different compositions!
I’m glad you liked them! and the challenge made me realize that I usually take 2 shots of a scene, just in case…
Wow! Both are beautiful, but so different. I like the portrait better; the sun just makes it.
thank you so much! 😀
For me it’s a tough call, but I think the portrait version takes the prize. With the sun, and some great lens flare as a nice touch, adding something to an otherwise featureless sky to balance out the shot. Now if the horizontal shot had the kind of sky I’m always hoping for when I venture to the coast, lots of clouds, dramatically lit from below by the rising/setting sun, the portrait wouldn’t stand a chance. But then I’m a sucker for a fiery sunrise sky.
I completely understand your love for sunrise/sunset light, it gives such a warm felt to the picture. unfortunately, I’m almost never ready for a sunrise and waiting for sunset that day was not possible. then, I have to do with what I have and that cloudless sky was pure blue and very inviting too, above the sea so I shot the one with the sun to enclose it all. I’m never a fan of the sun glare though… the rays yes, the glare no… but photoshop is out of order lately, I don’t even work on the pictures afterwards and am still happy about them.
Thanks again for all your feedback, each time it allows me more reflection for the next shot.
Never ready for a sunrise? You just have to wake up a little, well ok, a lot earlier. How tough is that? 😀
I know it’s such a lame excuse… I just love sleeping in the morning but when I actually do wake up early enough to see sunrise, I’m sooooooo happy! 😀
I love the portrait shot with the sun.
yeap, it definitely gave it the look it needed! thanks for coming back!
Brilliant shots … and brilliant choice.
Thank you so much! 😀
Both beautiful shots! The flare in the second photo makes it exceptional!
you’re a star! thank you !
I agree the second shot is much more interesting. Marie
I agree. I do like the dazzling sunburst and the other looks a tad washed out. Islands surrounded by deep blue, above as well…a spectacular perspective!
Thank you so! I too truly enjoyed the glare of the sun upon the scene!
I love the way the sun completely changes the whole feeling, and colour, of the shot: illlumates it, in both senses. Lovely! Alienora
Alienora, thanks for stopping by and commenting, especially for these kind words. I’m happy I succeeded in giving you different feelings about the same place. Cheers to you!
