before and after pt. 1

Dan and I have now been to Kelowna twice.  The first time was in 2007.  I had just purchased a point and shoot digital camera and I took a walk around the lake taking pictures.  I thought it would be fun to compare the pics from 2007 and 2009.

Condos in 2007

Assessment:  The sun added nice shadows in 2007 and I think my angle was better.

Simpson Walk 2007(below)

2010(below)

Assessment: Once again the sunny day made the water pop.  However, I like my angle better in 2010.

Weeping Willow 2007:weeping willow

Assessment: the 2007 version seems to be pixilated but I like the reflection.  The water in 2010 wasn’t as clear as 2007.

Duck 2007:

2010

Assessment:  I like the 2007 pictures, but I think the way the feet are mid-kick in the 2010 version.

One area that the difference is really evident is at 100% the 2010 pictures in 2010 are so much sharper.

Do you ever go back and compare your work over the years?
