    Hello everyone, I need some help from you guys on helping me pick the right angle and size for my next canvas, I got some really good feedback here on my previous canvas, so here it goes.

    It will be a 16x30 canvas from Costco, I have three options and was hoping you help me pick the best one. Please feel free to be as blunt as possible.

    This was taken during a sunrise on a hill close to our house.

    1. Kids are a little closer to the middle with more blue sky
    2. kids are on the middle with less blue sky and their profiles are bigger
    3. kids are on the far left with more blue sky

    Thanks in advanced.

    Number 2 for me. It leaves just enough open to give a sense of mystery. Where are there? Where are they going? What lies ahead? Etc. While these questions could be asked about the others, the wideness and focus on the sky make it clear that the subjects aren't the focus.

    The others are a bit too expansive and detract from the subjects. They also have far too much sky.

    Ultimately, it depends on what you want to emphasize. The subjects or the landscape. I fancy myself a street photographer, so my focus is on the people aspect which is why my eyes and head lead me to number 2.

    I'd say somewhere between 1 and 2. The kids are positioned correctly in shot 1, but you need a little more foreground. Google rule of thirds in photography.

    None of the above. Take number two but move the kids a hair to the left.

    Thank you for the great feedback.

    Using picture number 2 I increased the size of the kids and moved them to the left.

    What do you guys think?

    Thanks a million.

    Number 2!!!!!

    I really like the second picture!! The 1st and 3rd seems like its missing something. Or it seems like you were trying to take a picture of the scenery, but those kids photobombed your picture at the right timing. (In my opinion)

    Third one. Gives more depth, and I like how the sun/kids aren't in the centre, feels like they're on a journey because we can see ahead of them.
