What in your opinion says more, an emotive piece of writing spanning one side of A4 paper, or an emotive picture or photograph spanning an A4 page? I mean, which one of these examples would you feel more moved by in an average situation.


please feel free to debate your point, in a friendly, gentlemanly(or ladily) way.

also, poll coming.
"You're a twat!"- That dude in morrisons

"You Ugly git!" - That girl in the restaurant

"You Were a Mistake!" - Mum

just a few of my fans..

Differs for me, it depends on the situation. I really enjoy pictures or photographs, but then again, written pieces always strike me.

reading gives you a better chance to use your imagination and allows you to gain a better, more personal understanding of what your looking at
#6
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, yet I'm more of a reader. Depends which situation though.

Well, you see, that cat is both alive and dead, and there is a pretty fractal in the top right corner.


And that's all I got.

You only knew that because you've heard of Schrödinger's cat before :P

I could write loads of sentences about different things, but a picture is a picture of one thing. Unless it's a collage, but collages are gay. Anyone who disagrees is a Communist, they are also wrong.

A picture of a titty will always entertain me more than a description of same.
Arguing on the Internet is a lot like being in the Special Olympics. Even if you win you're still retarded
#13
Never been a fan of poetry or discriptive writing.
I cant stand it when u reading a book and the author has to describe everything in detail.
That said, I prefer books to movies.
So I dont know, depends on the situation. *shrugs*

I'm not really sure. It all depends I guess on how well the photographer is, or the writer.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.


I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.

There are some things a picture will never be able to show.

There are some things words will never be able to describe.

#17
A great writer could outmatch a poor photographer. However, a picture of higher caliber will always appeal to the senses of people over a short essay of the same.

#19
You really can't compare the two. If you wanted to, you'd have to be comparing a picture to a paragraph that only describes visual information.

Really though, I think pictures. One pictures from a warscene is much more powerful than a page about it.

you see this is the type of thing I was thinking when I made the thread.. but I'm reading "the amber spyglass" atm and If it was a picture book showing the same thing, I'd hate it.. I like the idea of painting your own image..


I think my result is;

fiction=writing/spoken word is better (in most cases)
Fact=Pictures better (in most cases)
"You're a twat!"- That dude in morrisons

"You Ugly git!" - That girl in the restaurant

"You Were a Mistake!" - Mum
