Wonderful light. I think out of the two I prefer the warmer V2. Also I think the sky looks a bit more natural on V2 (on my screen anyway).

Thanks Cliff. The sky was changing by the second and was murder to process as it contained both hot and cold. As I recall I was freezing and wet Grin

As usual I'd have to sit on the fence, Alun. The sky in v2 does look more natural but I much prefer the greens and the greater contrast of v1. The light probably is quite realistic in v2 but the colours are a bit too red for my taste. v1 has the impact, v2 is softer and closer to reality.

(does there need to be a comparison, keep both as versions, I'm sure there'll be a bit of a split vote)

I too must sit on the fence over preference for this duo, Alun: I always prefer natural colouring and I am not sure which the bill the better.
Always nice to see images from this geologically very active part of Skye.

Thanks guys. That dawn played havoc with colour. The raws themselves combine oranges and cyans in a way I've never seen in any other landscape I've taken.

Much as I love warm everthing, I prefer V1 for more natural looking scene
although I daresay V2 was just as real.
Awesome image and scenery.

Both processed very well, but V1 for me. I think the sky is more dramatic and colouring on the landscape is more natural.

A very good capture Alun irrespective of any comparison.

It is a good exercise though so if I were to be picky I'd opt for elements from each.... Sky - I'd keep the more natural looking sky from V2 but combine it with the portion of warm light on the left hand side of V1. Land - I'd keep everthing in the fore and mid ground from V1 as it has much more impact and natural looking contrast plus the haze from V2 on the left hand side is distracting. I particularly love the light and detail on the facing slope of the hill/mountain (whatever you call it) just beyond the 2nd lake/loch or whatever you call it - I'm from East Anglia and we don't have those strange things here Blush

Either way, a cracking shot!

Cheers,
Barney

V1 has the drama, contrast and colour impact so I can see why you led with it. The colour on the land looks more natural to my eyes which I also prefer. A strikingly beautiful image thanks to the dramatic light.

Thanks. Your comments and reasoning are very welcome. Being somewhat of a purist I can honestly say I've never replaced a sky in my life but as these were taken only a few frames away from each other perhaps I'll have a go at combining the two as per Barney's suggestion. Very grateful to Tom for his UA - cheers, m8

Sometimes in the early morning the colours are nearer to V2 but whatever you did has opened the shadows and the walls have lost the wonderful shadows and that excellent definition.

Hands down for V1 every time.
