Another one from saturdays early morning on Mam Tor. Martin kindly acted as my model (he didn't know it at first though)...I've put a variation where he tried to apply the brakes by the look of things and skidded Smile

I've also put another moodier version - so if you have the time...please let me know which you prefer

V1 mate all the way ... V3 is just a little too dark!!!

What were the little orange patches on the left before you cloned them?

cheers mark & paul for the feedback.

I was looking back at some old files from 2007/early 08 and realised I nearly always underexposed my shots as the histogram was way to the left - so I replicated it to see what it would look like if I'd had these conditions and taken it like I used to - glad to hear I'm now doing it right now Smile

just a bit of flare from the scratched 2 stopper, I tried to shield it with my hand but would have got it in the shot.

I suppose the what you like depends on the effect you are trying to achieve. I like V1 best, but I also like v3 as well. More natural V1, more mood V3!
Is that fence sitting enough for you!

I though I liked V3 best at first - I do tend to prefer darker, moodier - but when viewed large (both of them) I really did prefer the sense of light in V1. Really is a bit gorgeous - the snowy hill's not bad, either!

Think I prefer mod 3 Rich; but then I'm genreally drawn to higher contrast landscapes I think. Impartially, perhaps the gentler toning of V1 better compliments the subject matter. Still great either way of course.

Wish I'd got out here in the snow Sad
