For me, I'd like the deep blue sky of the second (wide) photo in the first (telephoto) image.

I like the sideways / triangular view of the cottage in the wide photo, but prefer the more 'normal' perspective view of the cottage in the telephoto shot. If you had taken the view of the cottage from the second viewpoint but with a telephoto lens that would probably be my choice.

Hi John.
Yes, it's the first image for me also, and for the same reason as Paul. I think it offers a better perspective.

Regards,

Phil.

Ultra wide - it has a better composition and more drama than the telephoto version.

I prefer version 1. The building in No 2 looks a bit lost in the middle of the picture.

I like both but my preference is number 1. Number 2 is more dynamic but there is too much space around the house for me. I would have cropped the sides.

I prefer the wide angle, I like the more saturated colours and the space around the house. I also like the way the path sort of frames up the cottage.
