We thought it would be fun for this Photo Story to compare some of our photo’s to those of National Geographic. We tried to choose photo’s that were places we had been before and had a similar subject matter. In doing this it was a great learning experience.

Just spending the time browsing through the amazing photo’s at National Geographic and seeing different perspectives and compositions really inspires. So I hope these photo’s inspire everyone to go out there and take in the beauty that this world has to offer.

After all National Geographic’s tag line is “Inspiring people to care about the Planet”.

    Dave’s photography is so awesome!! Next time you should do a post and make us guess which is NatGeo and which is his! I bet we couldn’t tell :)

    I am guilty of photo copying… I have a lot of pictures of places my wife and I have gone and specificaly seeked out “the spot” where the famous picture was taken.

    OMG! Your photos are amazing! You should have entered our competition last month on Grantourismo. You could have won a holiday stay. You *must* come and enter our contests – we hold them every month and the first prize could get you 10 nights accom if you choose the property carefully. Hope to see you over there!

      Thanks for the compliment. It was just fun to see that we have been to a lot of the places that National Geographic has been too.

    Amazing pictures Dave!!!
    Both National Geographic’s & your pics are beautiful, but I love your perspective better (on all of them):)
    Keep on dazzling us & the great work. Both you & Deb keep us wanting more.

    Wow. Great photos! Nothing beats National Geographic – thoes people know how to inspire but you really nailed it. Nice work. I like how you showcased two different perspectives on the same thing. I’d love to see more of this kind of thing since your already such a great photographer.

      Thanks Slava. We happened upon this view as the sun was going down. Luckily we rented a car so could cruise around to find different viewpoints of Toledo. Otherwise we may have stayed right in town and not even have noticed that we could go across the river for this terrific shot.

    This is a such a clever idea. I almost wish that we had the opportunity to guess which was which – your photos are so beautiful that I would have guessed wrong in almost every comparison. Great work! (We have got to get a better camera and some better photo skills!)

      HI Federico. that is strange, it shouldn’t happen as far as we know. What resolution do you save them as. We save ours as 150 DPI

      Thanks Leslie. It was pretty cool to find similar pictures to ours when browsing National Geographic photographs. They do take incredible photos and it was nice to see that we have similar taste in composition.
