This is yesterday's picture cropped to remove much of the foreground. I think the comp is a lot better balanced now... over to you.

Needs to be viewed large, if you can...

As much as I liked yesterdays, the crop has improved it.

I like them both, but I prefer the uncropped version. Somehow it has more scale. Also prefer the background colour (black) on last nights version.

Very close in my book Julian. I do like the space in the previous shot that lets the scene "breathe" but this does benefit from less of the (relatively) dull foreground. Tricky.
Both good,
Richard

julian i do like both, i like this crop because it puts more prominence on the dawn light spilling into the village but why do i want to see a tiny fraction (5%) more of the bottom of the cypress trees? (probably just me) i know that the light foliage would encroach on the left but this could be removed with a perspective crop,

but hey this is just nit picking it is a lovely image.

Smashing light and I much prefer the panoramic crop which has reduced the amount of foreground. How are you finding large format photography?

Thanks everyone!

Chris: LF is a lot more fun than I thought it would be. I was worried about all the ways you can screw up an image when you don't have any safety locks on the camera but, in truth, once you get a routine established it all falls into place and becomes an absorbing and fascinating way of taking pictures.

So far, only one double-exposure and only one blank frame from forgetting to pull out the dark-slide.... Wink

Beautiful colours again. Haven't seen the original version yet, but the composition on this is excellent.
My wife still has an old folding roll-film camera where you have to **** the shutter manually after you wind on and before you can take the pic; that takes a bit of getting used to.

Thanks Chris!

Manual shutter-cocking is par for the course on LF...

I have taken this view several times, but never at dawn... you have inspired me! Stunning light!

Well done!
