Love the sharper contrasts and greater range of tones in V1. Wonderful composition btw and a great arty feel and quality.
I'll go against the grain, (sorry!)
I prefer V2.
Version 2 nails it for me.
V1 is much more striking! Lovely
I like both for different reasons. V2 looks like an old albumen print, whereas V1 is more like newsprint, ie Tri-X push processed and printed hard.
I also like the fact that they break most of the rules. The horizon is almost central, there is no defined foreground interest, the leading lines lead away from the subject, the shot is way too contrasty and sharpened for a landscape shot and the "grain" almost overpowers the rest.
On the other hand, the shot is moody, atmospheric and....different. You usual treatment of sky and contrast works in this case, adding to the effect rather than destroying it.
Either version is fine to me but I would look closely at the composition. The spire of the church is very central and may benefit from being slightly to one side. I would crop the RHS to the large tree and mak this my full stop if you like. As these image are quite grainy the addition of a border would be good to give a feeling of age to the overall effect.
thanks for crits and mod
