I had a bit of a play around with this one (hush you, I know I should have asked first) and animated the water... it's nowhere near as good as the original but it makes a good distraction and an interesting pseudo wallpaper.

i think this one is better because it makes the trees the center of attention more than the other photo does. the trees are different and unusual compared witht the other more lively parts of the landscape such as the grass or the clouds. the trees have a category of their own and are the 'outcasts' of the photo making them pop because they contrast the rest of the photo, the old photo didn't make them pop as much because we couldn't see as much of the contrasting background

I agree with JAHarrell, while the square one is great you don't find yourself there as you do in this one:) Damn fine image!

I prefer this one too David. The wide angle allows you to view more of the river which then leads you through the scene.

I think the sweep of this shot makes it more appealing to me. There is something so very majestic in the trees and how they fit into the landscape!

Beautiful reflections, I think the sky could do with a slight dodge to brighten it like the reflection though, apart from that you nailed it :)

Sun-Seeker Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2009
Hmm my cheap Indian grad ND.. does give some colour. I did lighten.. if you look the bottom edge cuts off at the bottom of the dark area so that doesn't really make it into the reflection.

I prefer the first one, this one seems more heavily weighted to the right side or something .

i prefer this version... having trouble thinking of a sane way of putting it into words though :]
the colours seem to be a bit more muted in this version, which i like - but it also has the full view which gives it a kind of poetic feel... the composition feels better too, which the horizon leading your eye to the trees and the great reflections...
i salute in your general direction !
