A lovely English pastoral scene in V 1, Neil, but of your two versions, i think V 2 really gets my that road winding down the hillside, carrying the eye into the middle and far distance........all that beauty and not a single car in sight.......what they are all missingWinkWink
And the B and W presentation works very nicely too.

A beautiful scene and lovely light over it Neil. Lovely sky too. Nice winding road in V2, wouldn't mind walking down it, but not the opposite! Moira

I do like that evening light in V1 but V2 does grab my attention. Good mono tones with the road taking the eye towards that lovely view.
Best wishes to you and the family.
