Same / Different

The following three photos are from our recent trip. I have been meaning to put them up as a good example of how important it can be to have full control of the camera instead of letting it make the choice of exposure settings for us.

So, this is the same conditions, just different settings.

1. Normal exposure

close to what the camera was saying is proper for the image

2. ‘Underexposed’

I wanted get the silhouettes of the trees and the brightness of the sun through the clouds.

1. ‘Overexposure’

Here I was going for the colors – the beautiful greens and oranges which seam to come out when the weather is wet.

I dont think there is any one right or correct, just different images that will appeal to different people.  I personally cannot choose. The moment I think “this is the one!” and at that time I see something that I like in another one.  They are no masterpieces, they were shot from the car after all, but they do  bring me some pleasure the more I look at them.

Which one speaks to you? If any.
