Another one that I'm keen for feedback on, for both variants - thanks

I think the 1st version is better because it is more simple. The still turbine really adds to the movement.

for me v1 is the best of your turbine images as youve caught some lovely light, and captured the movement effectively. the letterbox format works well.
in comparison v2 doesnt work as well, the wall chops the corner of the image off, where as when dave used the wall it both acted as a lead in and with it catching the light was interesting in its own right. youve again caught good movement in the turbines. think i'd be tempted to clone out the mast in both versions, but its not as evident in v1.
Two great shots - like V1 best.
Been looking at these on Flickr too Carl and have been cogitating more than is healthy for a Sunday.
v1 is definitely the better of the two in my view, the panoramic crop really accentuates the line of turbines and reduces the importance of a rather scruffy foreground. Getting lower down has worked well and your crop is also spot-on too in my view as it enhances the composition.
The EXIF data from the Flickr posting is: Exposure: 0.125 sec (1/8) / Aperture: f/22.0 /Focal Length: 15 mm /ISO Speed: 100 ... with the turbines at that distance f22 wasn't strictly vital although I presume you had to stop down to get the right shutter speed? An excuse to buy a set of ND filters perhaps to give you more flexibility?
There is some nice light (good to see you on the moor at 7pm Sir) and I guess that what is missing, and why I've been cogitating so long, is some additional interest to take away from the linearity. A really dramatic sky as a backdrop (like the sunset we worked through Friday) or something in the FG would have lifted this image considerably.
I'm with Lesley re v2 but top marks for trying a different composition ... some real progress being made my friend. The EXIF data shows Exposure: 0.2 sec (1/5) and Aperture: f/22.0 which I think was a good choice to keep front to back sharpness (which the shot does appear to have). Given your thirst for knowledge and understanding you might want to check out the forums and see what the "optimal" aperture is for this lens to give sharpness and clarity.
Hope this helps my friend, far too much effort for a Sunday!!
It's V1 for me too Cj. I think the panoramic crop works very well. The lighitng is lovely. One fo your best yet.
