This is a rework of an old image, take on the way up to High Street.

V2 is my original upload

This is a bit of a test really to see if my processing techniques have improvedTongue

I agree with Herman, Den. I like V2 most as I like the contrast. Wonderful shots!

The colour is more saturated in the foreground and the portrait format gives a lovely depth to v1. The overall composition I feel is more balanced in v2 though. More foreground and the slopes frame the valley better, but most importantly the lake in v1 has nothing to stop the water pouring out of the left frame.

It is a magnificent view, but I do prefer the comp in V2.

I assume you are referring to V1, Den. As far as I can tell, this is a vertical crop of V2, and I am finding it hard to see much difference. I think you may have enhanced the colours a little, but I feel it also needs a boost in contrast.
The little bit of foreground rock that remains in V1 needs cloning out because there is so little of it.
I think V2, the one you uploaded before, is a nicer composition, because it includes the whole of the lake in the background, and the diagonals of the foreground rock on the left and the slope of the hill on the right form a nice bit of symmetry and give the scene depth. It shows the contours and the sweep of the hills so nicely.
I feel that you have probably tried to use the river as a main focus in V1, showing it running through the image, winding and turning. However, I feel there isn't enough interest within the crop.
I hope I didn't misunderstand you.
Pamela.
