No2By the way, I would really appreciate any views about which of the Harbour Bridge fog shots people prefer.
No 1, you know the area, to an outsider the lights lower LHS are a distraction, and yes the bridge floats but looks like it's disconnected. In 2 the road up to the bridge is just distinct enough and the lights not distracting. Both 3 & 4 the buildings bottom LHS, they may "place" the shot for you but for an outsider they are "clutter" and unbalance the shot. I can see a case for 4 if seen on its own but if up against 2 no.
Just my opinion, for whatever that is worth. I often get more "views" and "faves" on my Flickr for shots I rate lower than my first tier.
I read recently of a photographer (film) who doesn't look at contacts for 12 months, Winnogrand of course took that to the extreme.
