It felt really nice seeing all the things fall together into place.

Vs

It felt really nice to see all the things fall together into place.

Is this just an infinite- gerund thing ? Or are the meanings of the two sentences different ?

  • Subrat, if you ask two or three search engines to conjugate the verb To see, which tenses do they show for seeing and for to see and what does that leave unclear? – Robbie Goodwin Nov 3 '18 at 22:55

In your example

It felt really nice seeing all the things fall together into place.
It felt really nice to see all the things fall together into place.

There is no real difference in meaning or nuance.

However, the usual expression is

It felt really nice seeing things fall into place.
It felt really nice to see things fall into place.

since "all" and "together" is automatically implied and is redundant.
