This is a remix of this previous upload. I was going for a more natural look, which I think works a lot better than the slightly OTT saturation of the previous effort.

What do you think?

(Needless to say, you should check out the large version, if you can.)

I'm going to have another attempt at this place some time this year. THE classic Tuscany shot.

I like it, but I do prefer the first attempt. It seems to capture the warm tones of the Tuscan light better, and I like the drama of the barely viewable mountain top in the top left corner on the first image. Again, that mountain gives it a warmer tone which I am used to seeing in Tuscan photos by Charlie Waite and so on.

But, of course, this is only my opinion... Gets my click anyway, as does the previous one!

This is the one for me, the colour is more subtle and looks like Tuscany as I know it.

All the very best

Beautiful "soft" light and colours. Excellent composition.
You are so right, the large version is dramatic.
Best wishes,
George

Hi jools,
my answer to the question is if I had to chose I prefer this one for its more subtle tones. But.. having said that, there's a bit of a blue or magenta leaning in this one whereas I actually prefer the greenier tones of the last. Either way it's a lovely comp. is it Tuscany or therabouts?
