And all I wanted to say was that I love you
But you tell me now you don't believe it's true
You got a different, a different
A different point of view
You got a different
Point of view

I like the 1st one. I have cropped many sun rise shots like the 1st one here. The 2nd shot shows too much ucky foreground the foreground isn't much to look at. If the foreground had been water with a nice sunrise reflection now that would have been worth keeping the foreground. Also too much sky in the 2nd. If there would have been some action going on in the sky a storm or something the sky would have been worth keeping,but since it is an over cast day it is best to crop out the white wash. Also cropping to off center the sun draws ones eye to the photo to have a look around. The sun in the center makes a girl go cross eyed?

I prefer the 2nd shot. A big sunset deserves a big format, it really gives us the scale. Beautiful shot!!

Both are good, but I prefer number 1 for the same reason I prefer widescreen tv to conventional - our eyes are configured for a wider rather than a taller view.

I like #1, it focuses more on the sunset

Yes, #1. I like the sunset being to the side. When the sunset is centered it is too busy.

#1, horizontal is how our eye tends to naturally see things outdoors unless there's a specific image (tree, etc.) to focus on.... the subject is the sunset and the second shot has too many other things going on (we wouldn't "naturally" look up and down, seeing the grass for example).

good shot - I like the first crop. I tend to prefer landscapes in landscape format and this panorama is a nice example.

first one, we have too much details on the second one that distract us from the beautiful sunset....I see 1 and feel breathless...I see 2 and my mind wanders around thinkign if that grass there is the same we have here ;) great set Pete

I would definitely prefer the first one, the panorama. It gives the beauty much more space. althought the second has the advantage of having more variation... still the first one!:D
