SLR Vs Point and Shoot - Photo Quiz #1

By Livingthedreamrtw @livingdreamrtw
SLR vs Point and Shoot - Photo Quiz #1One of my favorite aspects about traveling is taking photos of the sights, people, nature, and just about everything else the world has to offer.  Of course, to go along with that I am armed to the teeth with a number of cameras, tripods, and other attachments that many people do not typically carry just to be able to get a certain shot. 
The big debate in travel photography is what kind of equipment is necessary to get the best pictures of the world around us.  Some people swear by SLRs and others are perfectly happy with a far cheaper point and shoot camera.  The trick is in knowing how to use it.  A $1,000 camera will only get slightly better photos than its $200 point and shoot counterpart if you do not know how to use it.  Likewise, a $200 point and shoot camera is capable of producing some amazingly beautiful shots if you only take the time to learn it's tricks and secrets.
I have both, and while I am incredibly in love with the quality of the images an SLR produces, I get equally stunning photos on the point and shoots as well.   Some of them are so good that I suspect that most of you won't be able to tell the difference, hence this new weekly quiz.
For the next few weeks I'll post two photos that I have taken throughout my travels, one taken on an SLR and another on a point and shoot.  The following week I'll reveal which photo was taken from each camera on our Facebook Fan Page and start the next quiz.
This week I found two of my favorite night shots from around the world and am curious to see if you can tell which one was taken from a point and shoot or which one was taken from my SLR.

So, which do you think is from an SLR and which is from a Point and Shoot?  Comment below and check next week to see if you are right and to try again with two new photos!
