When composing today’s photo of water, experiment with both horizontal (landscape) and vertical (portrait) orientations.
Some photos were quite pretty but it was difficult to decide whether I preferred the landscape or portrait shots of the image. I think this was because the photos were too busy.
In the end I deliberately selected an unattractive scene.
I actually quite liked the landscape, horizontal image. It showed the rocks in the foreground, the river estuary and nautical feature in the mid section, with the sea leading out to the Island of Moorea in the background.
There was a lot of sky and foreground rocks in the vertical image. The background was insignificant.
So Which One
Both photos could be used, each portrayed a different message.
Not sure what any one else thinks?
