Giving away the exposure values would give away secret info. Lol. But they were shot at equivalent exposures. Say, if one were 1/125 at f5.6 the other is 1/250 at f/4.0 (not actual figures obvsly).
I can't pick which I prefer either. One has an older look because of the flare (which is probably also opening the shadows, causing a seemingly higher exposure)...the other more modern with zero flare. Oops, another clue.
Thanks for playing along with the shenanigans fellas. Haha
