Much prefer the composition of this one.

B&W really works when you have textures like these.

Adrian.

I'd prefer a little blurring in the foreground.

lol @ Teresa. Thanks everyone. I still like the other, though perhaps it needs a little less foreground rock, but this is definitely a more mainstream (sorry about the pun) composition. :0)

Nice comp - classic 'S' shape, pleasing to the eye.
Had a look at the previous one, prefer this one.

Too busy to work in B&W, for me anyway.

There was nothing wrong with yesterdays composition apart from the foreground.

Ian the only difference with this is the foreground is not there. Thanks for the feedback.

Yes, I like this better than the first version. I think experimentation is important tho! Points for trying something different! But blurring the foreground is tricky, it can disorient.

Cheers Doug. Even though I accept this is the more normal composition I still like the version with the out of focus forground, just in a different way.
