Same for me Helen, love how you have the Crocosmia 'Lucifer' (its the only plant I know got obsessed with it) coming into the image. Lovey composition.

I must be doing something wrong I have toggled between 1/2 and they both look the same to me with a slight change of position in the frame! A good set nonetheless my Faves today could be V3 for the wonderful light

Thanks for your comment Ann - I have completely removed the detail of the greenery inside the curve in v1 and left it in v2, that's the difference Smile

dont know why i think this but v1 has a very chinese zen feel about it nice work V1 wins for me Helen

Can't decide between V1 an V2 but good to see what's behind the arch in V3!
Ilove the orange on orange also.
You inspired me to take a few images with Crocosmia from my garden.
I'll upload at a later date.

I prefer v1 for it's smoothness and oriental feeling, but I would have like to have seen more space above the arch as in v2.

V2, just to be awkward Smile. I like the retracted detail, it's there but doesn't take away from the image. v1 is very stylised (Chinese almost, as already said), but the silver trunk gets in the way a bit. v3 is an excellent over/rear view.

This is superb Helen - the pure art of composition. I'm seeing Chinese styling in this too.

I think V1 is the stronger composition Helen and I prefer the stronger colours as well.

Got your message OK !....see reply !

I think the 'Stop Delivery' just gives a chance to delete, before it's been read ?, but after it's been read the 'Stop Delivery' disappears, so it's
an indication that the message has been read.......blimey, that's confusing !.Grin

V1 for me Helen. It's such a strong abstract, and orient inspired in appearance.
