Hi Herman, two lovely landscapes with those wonderful red pokers in the foreground. What a beautiful place you live in. The red balances off the rest very nicely.

Has wonderful depth and good detail from fore to far distance.

Love V1 Herman. Your flower photos always tug at my heart strings, bringing back memories of my growing up in South Africa. We used to see aloes in all their splendour whilst driving up throught the Umkomaas Valley to the Drakensberg where we had a holiday cottage. Ann.

Perfectly put by Ronnie. v1 has the focus on the landscape and consequently more depth of field. v2 has focussed on the flowers with the landscape behind becoming softer.
