Re: A Strange Barcelona setting (7 similar pics, looking for best 2)

Interesting, I really disliked the pictures with the people in the foreground. The geometry of the background and the minimalism is what I like about the scene because it focuses the attention on the main subjects. The people in the foreground just seem random and unconnected to the rest. Especially the out-of-focus half of a boy in a black jacket doesn't make any sense to me.

These are just my personal feelings about the pictures and I'm not starting a discussion which one is the objectively better (because that is not possible). I find it interesting that different people have so different reactions to these pictures.

Ultimately it depends on what the vision, the intention of the photographer was when he created these images which one is best, as in which one fits this original vision best.
