Having taken a hard look at all three shots, my preference is for the b/w version cropped in a square format - the composition better follows the rule of third. Unfortunately, I downsized the picture too much and lost resolution. I will re-post a higher quality version this evening.

Let me know which one you prefer in the meantime, I am interested in your views.

Thanks for watching.

Yes, I think I agree with your assessment that the square format version is the best one.

Well, I'll go against the grain and opt for 1 & 3. Whichever one you go for it's certainly a very beautiful scene with plenty of interesting elements.

I'd go for the comp from 2 with the colours of 3. Nice work, whichever one you prefer!

I like No. 3 I think the colour gives more detail but do like the b/w ones too.

Never mind rules, the b/w version of #3 has lost shadow detail on the right evident in the original. Generally I find the square version better balanced with a greater proportion of interest.

Thanks to all for your comments! I am glad to see everybody disagree Smile Smile
Woolybill1 is right. Some of the shadow details on the right have been lost. That's a PS job for me tonight: bringing more of the details out. If I get something decent, I will post it.

prefer 3 as I think that a better mono conversion could be done, #1 has not got enough separation with the fir tree and BG mountain

Beautiful composition. I am attracted to the square format of version 2, but love the color version most.
