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.

Love them both but prefer V2 by a whisker - or should that be a petal?

Great scene, Herman. V1 has the edge for me with its tighter crop and more prominent f/g interest.

These vibrant alloe blooms make an excellent f/g feature here, Herman, and I like how you have composed the shot by omitting the sky.
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.

Tish is cracker jack image Herman; those flowering Aloe just lording it over that spectacular view. The contrast of the flowers almost gives it a 3D effect; I am liking this................

I had never seen red Aloe flowers, here in Venezuela they are yellow! What a marvel of color!
Like V2 more because it gives more of the landscape, I miss the openness of the sabana (plains).
