Beautiful landscape Herman. I prefer the large image in V1, the composition and color. The tree provides a terrific point of reference, a visual center. And, what is that black shape in the sky above the tree?

Wonderful landscape Herman,, The tree really gives it that extra boost... and as Peter said, what is that black shape.. an eagle perhaps ??

How much do you want to put in one image Herman, bird in flight, fantastic mountain background contrasting rapeseed fields and a focal point, could you not save one of these features for another time Grin

Brilliant composition, our winters, we just get white and grey, your winters, you get such an array of colour.

Love that rolling landscape in V 1 with the mountain backdrop, the dead tree such a f/g feature: and concentrating on the tree alone in V 2 is excellent.
Two different takes and I can't choose between the two, so 1/2 vote to each today.

Herman V1 my sought of image. Think it is superb, love the composition, the contrasting colours, the ideally placed tree and the bonus bird. Wonderful.

Wow, I love this Herman, those hills are amazing. I think you also have two great shots here, if you crop a portrait version at the left hand side just above the tree at the bottom you have a great abstarct landscape.
