This is an older one. I really tried to get it nicer than this, but every time I try, I feel like I mess it up even more. So here it is.

Please modify it if you will and if you have any ideas on how to crop it, it will be appreciated.

Thanks for your help with my first attempt to portraiture.

It's a wonderful capture! If I may, my suggestion would be to reduce the white space in the middle to a stripe and eliminate greater part of the space at the bottom and to make it a bit less symmetrical frame.

Interesting seeing V2 but I prefer V1. In floral images I always feel there needs to be space around the flower and somehow it seems the same with the trees in this image. I like the light and the delicately glowing tones, also the combination of man-made and Nature. That mono Mod is very good, but still it's your own V1 getting my vote.

V2 is definitely better than V1 with less white space in between, more believable.

V2 seems to have a stronger contrast for me, but I like the idea of mirror imaging, I am going to have go at it myself after seeing this super photo of yours.

Square crop of tree on right seems a fair comment. judges at CC often say there's two pictures within one.
the reflection is wonderful.sky colour is lovely in V2. I always remove pylons.Grin
