This is a damn good upload! I was on the point of logging off, I'm glad I stayed on for a few minutes more.
V1 is nearly, but crucially not quite symmetrical, plus great use of portrait format - the narrative flows up and down the frame. Then V2 expands the scene sideways, adds a relaxed breadth, off-centre placement which is subtle, suggestive.
Made my day. So I'd better go to bed now.

Hard to chose between the two Adrian.
The exposure seems a tad better on V1 than V2Grin
Just my humble opinionWink

Two superb images, Adrian. Excellent colour, use of perspective (esp. V1, but unavoidable in V2 though more subtle).
Probably, just probably, I prefer V2: the grasses in the foreground suggest that the surrounding gear has lain unused recently, though it does partially conceal the rope on the ground while giving more prominence to that slung over the white containers. The sprig of cow parsley almost dominates the scene, too, while the reflection of the blue boat at the jetty is clearer. But it's a damn' close-run think!

Mr. and Mrs. woolbill have summarised your shots comprehensively, Adrian, and cannot add anything of value beyond that: whilst the portrait version works well, I do personally prefer the landscape format of V 2. Both shots are very well composed, and it looks a delightful spot for your late evening walk.

The landscape version appeals more to me, I love the natural sense of place and life going on there-- Well done in all respects and a pleasure to view!

Think the experts have already said it all. I'm not too knowledgeable re landscapes, something I sometimes try but rarely post on epz. I do, however, know what I like and for me it just has to be V1 which I think is stunning. V2 is only just a hair's-breadth behind though!!

Two superb images Adrian - love them both, but V2 just takes it for me !

Given the subject and sky, I assumed I would prefer V1 Adrian. However, they both work well and overall I have slight preference for V2.

2 splendid shots Adrian. My preference is for v1 as it gives a greater sense of distance down that pier and beyond and I love the extra height and added sky in the portrait format
