I went outside this morning to put the dog out--she wouldn't go cos of the rain. While outside, though, I noticed that the rain made everything kinda pretty, so I decided to take a photograph. The photos are in chronological order. I thought that the second one was a more balanced photograph and more interesting because of the rain puddles and the fact that there was more to see cos I was standing further back and bending down to get more into the photo. As most of you know, I am just a beginner in the art of photography, so any insight, CONSTRUCTIVE criticism, or praise would be welcome!
Which photo do you think is better and why? <3
