I'm confused about using capacitors. In a project Im trying to shorten the cable from arduino or powersupply to a capacitor and with my limited knowledge im afraid i might be bypassing the capacitors as such. The two attached images. Are they basically the same thing?

The other image is the capacitor and power supply both directly soldered to arduino board.
This is where the 1000uf capacitor came from:
and this is the other capacitor:
