The photos that I've enlarged and framed are half portrait and half landscape, with a mix of buildings, flowers and plants, waterfalls, and wide landscapes.

It all depends on the subject, how it fits with the landscape around it, and how you want to portray the image.

Most of my mountainscape shots are horizontal, but a few work with a vertical setup as well.

Waterfalls... depends on the shape of the falls and how much surrounding land I wish to include.

So... I don't know.
But check them out.


Thanks for asking Ek,

Yes portrait is generally best. Its a semi-secret in the art community that us is the way to go. There maybe a scientific reason for this but no self respecting artist cares.If you really look at the topic on the wall I guess I'd have to say that I don't really feel it necessary to know exactly what I mean.


I just wanted to clarify: my suggestion that people are taller than they are wide does not apply in the U.S. But many of our pictures were taken overseas.

Something interesting I thought of. We see horizontally. That is, our eyesight has greater periphery on the sides than on the top and bottom, plus our eyes are side by side, so our vision by nature is panoramic.

Perhaps we are infatuated with vertical images because its not how we normally see.


Interesting. Thanks for the perspectives! I'll be keeping an eye out on photo compositions in general and see if this theory holds up.

I am really enjoying the theme/design of your web site. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems? A handful of my blog visitors have complained about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any solutions to help fix this issue?
