Two for the price of one! I've been doing an awful lot of shooting with my 100mm macro lens lately, which is a fantastic lens and I love it. I do want to make sure I'm getting variety in my compositions though, so I've also been using my new 50mm f/1.4. I'm not sure which of these two I prefer; as much as I'd like to go a little wider, I think the tighter shot still works better for this. Any feedback on preferences is appreciated.

They both have impact, but in different ways. The tighter shot seems a little less hopeful for whoever is in the cage (I am hoping someone is!) where the wider shot gives the appearance of hope, because the lock seems less intimidating, and smaller...hope that makes some sense...it is how I see them.

Heh, nope, not that sort of cage. It's in front of the women's hospital on Notre Dame, by their power plant. Interesting emotional reactions between the two of them, I'll have to mull that over.

I like the top shot better. I like that it shows so much detail on the lock, and the weld marks around the closure. I can feel the texture of those metal bars when I look at that picture. I also like that it gives a glimpse through the grate which isn't seen in the wider shot, although I'm sure that could be changed with angle. For this particular composition, though, I prefer the macro.

That is my inclination as well. I was trying to minimize the gaps between the grates to emphasize the repetition of bars and rust, but I can see your point about the hints of shadow through them in the tighter shot.
