How do you like to see pictures?

I don't have any statistics things on my blog so I have no idea who or how many people visit it. I figure the best way to get an answer to my question is just to have a post like this. If you noticed on the Snoopy card I posted, I have taken that picture all wonky. Do you like that? Do you prefer to see pictures of cards taken straight on the way I've been doing it? Maybe a mixture? I'd like to hear from you....

I like "crooked" photos. And while I don't usually turn them quite as much as the Snoopy card photo, I do like a slight tilt. It's the photographer in me that thinks a slight tilt adds interest. My Mom used to tell me the photos made her "dizzy." (Luckily she's come around ... or she'd never look at my photos! *laugh*)

It will be interesting to read the feedback you get.

Honestly, I can appreciate *some* slightly tilted photos but I like 'em all that way... I like simple straight and narrow just like out of a paper crafts mag... but the photo journalistic aspect to still shots is ok sometimes too. Especially if you are doing a close up to show dimension and variation of detail. HTH. Oh and I check you out all the time! Love it!

I like to see a slight tilt. Or if you do a straight on photo, I like it when there is a close up of the detail at an angle.

I like 'wonky', Novell. I've tried it myself but can't seem to get it just right.

First I visit your blog EVERY day! I *love* it! As for the photos I could take them both ways. They are fun to look at crooked or straight! HTH.

Hi Novell! I like a slight tilt to add interest, but maybe not quite as dramatic as the Snoopy - it's sometimes hard to see the details or get the card in my mind when it's too tilted. Not sure if that makes sense! HTH! Love your blog and your cards!

Straight works for me although the slightly crooked ones do seem to fit some pictures.
;O)

I think it all depends on the card. For example, the baby card you made looks great as is. I think for cards with a lot of detail straight on is best. Cards on a tilt are good for simpler ones where you are not wondering if something was cut off.
