V2 an alternative crop

Quote:Nelson turns a blind eye at the Battle of Copenhagen, 1801

In fact, a retreat would not only have wasted the initiative, but Nelson’s ships would have been forced to retreat across the line of fire from a still-active section of the Danish defences. Nelson turned to his flag-captain and said, ‘Foley, you know that I have lost an eye, and have a right to be blind sometimes’. Then he did raise his telescope to his blind eye and said, “I really do not see the signal.”

Nelson went on to win the battle and to negotiate an armistice, followed by a peace agreement. The phrase ‘to turn a blind eye’ had entered the English language. Admiral Parker was deemed by the Admiralty to have shown a lack of vigour in the overall campaign and was recalled; Vice-Admiral Nelson took over his command.

I like V2. It exaggerates the height above the road where we stand, so looks even stranger.

V2 for me, I dont think the area adds anything to the composition and the handrail etc. distracts from the main subject, nice image.

Normaly I would say V1 was the better image as V1 is cut in two but on this occasion I really like the extra interest that the black line presents . And apart from that they both work well.Smile
