One Shot; Two Ways

Wish I understood the tricks of photography better.

The First Way

The Second Way

The Second Way

As in all things in life, how we view these two photos makes a difference.

The first shot, from above, shows a tomato on a platter. The details of the platter are more noticeable for some reason, and the colors are truer to life.

The second just seems to have more character. It seems to tell a story, reminds of a setting sun behind a red-sailed boat, in a fiery lake of shimmering water.

I hope everyone who watches my life is looking at the sunny, shimmering view, and not examining from above. . . .
