You'd have gotten 2 more points out of me ... I like it.

Almost my worst scoring image ever, but trust me, I'm fine with that. I guess I should have gone more traditional. Although that image isn't so go either:

my entry: ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/2000-2999/2687/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1219020.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/2000-2999/2687/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1219020.jpg', '/') + 1) .

I am loving your outtakes, I would have given at least 2-3 more points than I scored your originals with!

The Outtake would have scored better. Your original entry to me is just a building/ architecture not landscapes.

I find this more interesting than your entry, as it offers a very unusual viewpoint of a crossing.

Your first image didn't meet what I consider to be a "scape". It's a great architecture shot, but I need more than 1 building to consider it a view of the city or town you're shooting, even if the building is iconic and defines the city. So your second image would have scored higher only because my DNMC's get a 4 (or maybe a 5 if they would otherwise been an 8-10). I would have given the outtake a 5 as is, but cropped down and in from the left with some good post-processing it definitely would have earned more.

I'm a drone guy so I love shots like this. That said I much prefer your entry in the category, even with the blown out sun. I'm assuming you're shooting RAW so I would have hoped you could do something with the haziness, particularly over the city. I don't mind it so much in the glare of the sun but if you'd had removed it over NYC then this would likely have been in my top 10 or better.

Your entry, ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/2000-2999/2687/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1218944.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/2000-2999/2687/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1218944.jpg', '/') + 1) . ', is a great business portrait but a definite DNMC for the category for me - the location needs to be what's featured. As such both would have done better but the cropped in would have gotten a lot more attention from me than the one with lots of negative space.

Seeing the outtake, I can see why your team said go with the higher shot, I think I would have probably said go with it too. It does have that have that bridge,street and more lake and side by side, it has more impact.

I can not believe the difference 4 feet makes though in visual and how much is lost from the original, that is not a lot difference, but it shows so much here.

I think your team picked the right shot. And well done you. Still fantastic shots.

First shot was definitely the best choice for the challenge topic.

The 4 feet I mentioned in the comment had to do with height at that spot and was likely more like 10 feet before the tree became too prominent. The second shot is actually 60 feet lower and a good 10-15 feet to the left of the first spot and most of the way down the tree. But yeah, with drones a foot here and there changes a lot.

I like the lower angle shot much more, lovely reflection in the water and that waterfall is looking even nicer in that shot. I gave you a 6 for your image, but the lower angle one would have at least scored 7, probably 8.

Well, 4 feet did blow my mind, that it made that much of a difference in the shot. But the 60 feet does make more sense lol

And the birds (geese?)! I "like" the second shot too, though it breaks traditional "rules" for landscapes (e.g. middle horizon line) and might have gotten lower votes from sticklers for that kind of thing.

I don't think your notes mention the type of drone/camera, just the exposure data -- consider adding those if not a secret ... :-)

I'd add it but I'd have to kill you. Drone and all. LOL Actually I never added it with the old one since none of that data was available in the RAW data so I'd have to constantly pick it if I used it. I'll add the new one.

"Canada Ducks" as my father in-law calls them. And since when are their "rules"?! Besides, this is a "townscape", not a landscape. ;) If I went any lower then I'd be giving you tourists and who wants that?!
