Developing Your Eye, Day Three: “Water”

In my this submission, I am concentrating on Water Sports like the Dragon Boat Races that took place at our Teluk Bahang Dam, Penang. There are the portrait version (slightly out-of-focus) and the landscape version of the same Dragon Boat Race team. I take my photographs mostly in landscape versions and framing due to the easier positioning of my camera.

Today’s Tip: Ever wonder whether a photograph will work better horizontally or vertically? After you snap your picture, rotate your camera and take a shot from the other orientation — horizontally if you first took the picture vertically, and vice versa. Which way works better?
