    Which one do you like better (top or bottom) and why?

    if you need to leave room for people to write any comments, etc, then the bottom one appears to offer better opportunity for that if its totally for visuals, the top one is well balanced for light, shapes, tones, etc

    The bottom one. I don't like messing up the skyline and this does minimal damage to the water. I also like white lettering on a dark background but that is just my personal preference. You should have a space on the back for writing comments. It's a shame to screw up a nice card.

    the top one. in the bottom one, the text feels really intrusive to me.

    Top one, writing in sky looks better

    Text on the bottom works better. It breaks the ratio of the pic into thirds and allows the skyline negative space which gives it more emphasis.

    Bottom one. Leave a space to sky, please. Text color brings brighter image to the picture. I like bottom one.

    Bottom. Same reason as Hal Weiner. Would lower the skyline though. Too much water for my liking, the skyline is too much in the middle.

    Thanks for the info, guys, keep them coming. Please note that this is the front of the business card and the contact information will be on the back.

    Bottom, for all the same reasons mentioned above by others.

    Top - looks more sophisticated and professional. Bottom looks a little graphically campy.

    Top one looks more balanced. I like being able to see the complete image...shadows, reflections, etc...want dive in and swim to shore :)

    Top could the title be in red ?

    Bottom One... The Top looks too cluttered with having the text and the Skyline put together. Also, the bottom one the card is not as dark. Also, you could try and bring down the opacity on the text on the bottom and see how that looks ;0)

    Bottom one. It has a little more visual impact.

    top one because the composition made my eye want to scan the entire card - from water reflection to the contrasting letters in the sky, vs. the bottom one which my eyes stop at the top of the buildings. The top one seems larger

    Make both....I have my cards made at moo.com and you can have as many images as you want for the front in the order. If I had to pick one the top one if the horizon is moved down some...too much water IMO.

    They are both nice but I think I'd go with the bottom.

    The bottom one- I agree with the comments made by Hal and Mansa

    or cancel

  • Chris B.

    I prefer the top one. The text is in an area that, otherwise, has no detail to compete with it. The black text in sky doesn't distract from the image as much as the white text which is lighter than any part of image. As a Maggie stated I'm inclined to view the entire image when looking at the top one but the text is very pronounced in the bottom one and overwhelms the image.

    Definitely the top! Bolder, more pronounced and to the point.
