For me both compositions work really. Again, the lack of people just addds to the shot. Well done my friend.

Kamran Efendiev
nice reflection, excellently in focus, very clear... congrats

I think I like this view the best of the Farmer's Market shots. The curved lines in the stones in the street give me enough tilt without some of the added vertigo in the others.

Ken Beilman
Very nice, Wils. I think I prefer the vertical. More satisfying perspective, although more conventional.

Kim Slonaker
Not torn on this one - I prefer the vertical. I like the way the bricks form a "v" in the foreground.

Karen Roeder
The vertical wins hands down IMO. I like the juxtaposition of the V in the brick to the perspective of the storefronts & combined neon signage. Also, the close up of the wet brick adds textural interest.

Vince Muehe
Excellent exposure!

Actually, I prefer this one. Why? I love the leading lines created by the brick and the angle is more in line with my head being tilted. Everything appears to be being sucked into the end of the orange brick road. I like this one! Really interestingly composed.

A quick experiment . . . Here's an interesting observation from my experimentation of putting one image up for critique request, (this vertical version,) and one without (recent horizontal version.) Even though most prefer the vertical over the horizontal, yet this vertical version is an inferior product, (by almost full point,) if based solely on rating. Even get a 3/3, how about that! Comment-wise however, the version that went through critique request received a few more comments from new members. Oh well, you can make your own conclusions. To me, as long as one continues to produce high quality results, it really doesn't matter which way you cut it. The creator him/herself will ultimately be the one who's satisfied his/her own work. ^_^

"Pike Place Market," which do you prefer? Hoping to see lots of brick pavement in this vertical orientation, or do you prefer the horizontal version ? Feedback is welcome.
