Behind the Camera: The Eyes of Time

“Time is a companion that goes with us on a journey. It reminds us to cherish each moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we have lived.” Captain Jean-Luc Picard from Star Trek: Generations.

While we were down at the lake in Keystone this weekend, I snuck away for a little bit to go to a fun little artist co-op and antique store in Melrose and stumbled across this awesome sign. I need your opinion! Initially, I was drawn to the very cool glasses at the top of the clock so I wanted to capture the whole sign. Then as I was cleaning it up and adding some fun layers, I cropped it to square to capture just the clock face and like that too. Now I don’t know which one I like better? Should I list the vertical, the square or both? Which is your favorite?

i like the first, too. the eye physicians makes better sense and that wonderful peacock feather effect against the green leafy background is beautiful.

I must agree with the crowd. The first is really more interesting. It's a great picture.

i LOVE squares ... but i still think the first one is a better image .. more interest .. those groovy glasses at the top ... but if you had never seen the first one, you'd adore the second!

I also vote for the first image. I think it makes a better composition. The balance of values feels better in that one.
