"tiled" after a hike

By Relic01  
A little while ago I posted a similar photo and it was suggested I revisit. Well today I did. Ilike the different angles and lines that run throughout this. I will post the SOOC and also a couple other versions. I shot in aperture priority and used f20 as there was a lot of glare from the clouds. Range I shot from was approx 100 ft using a mono pod while trying to get above the fence line.

Well, correctly exposed and sharp, talking v1. So it can be done. You have a perfect image for a builders material catalogue of a Double Roman roof. To make more than simple pattern, a Rook or rowc sat on the angled ridge tiles would be very nice.

Despite the quality,i struggle with why you chose f20. Not needed and likely to actually reduce quality. f11 would be more than enogh.

It's an image that makes the brain work a bit, that's always good. An interesting comparison. I rather like b&w, although I can't see any difference between V3 and V4.

Paul makes a good point - F20 would not be my first choice!

A suggestion re composition - I like the strong ridge at the top but the bit of diagonal ridge top right spoils the abstract lines. It's good to have diagonals hitting corners, as happens bottom right. I know you are trying out free editing software - if you have anything like Adobe's Free transform, it allows you to stretch the image. That's what I have done in my modification - stretched it up in the frame.

I also made a small Levels adjustment, and cloned to cover the lighter tile in the middle.

Nothing to add to the above advice, but I'd like to say I'm glad to see you go back and have another go at this, it was worth it.

I have two contradictory messages to give:

1 it's often fun and rewarding to explore the extremes! You will crash and burn a lot - and sometimes, you will do wonderful things.
2 generally, it's best to keep in the middle of the carriageway, cruising gently. Give yourself headroom, so that all your settings play on the strongest areas technically - mid-range apertures, avoid low shutter speeds...

For any given shot, decide whether to take the high or low risk approach. For a shot like this (static subject, decent light) I'd definitely choose the low risk way. Or try both: instead of processing differently, try shots at different apertures, and see what differences you can see on the computer.
