    I rarely say "color", but I'll make an exception for this image, Robert. ;)

    Reason? The way you've cropped it has the sky as an important element in the image, and I think the strong blue helps.

    Also, I am a total sucker for images with such natural play of complementary colors, and your receding blue/advancing orange here is very attractive. :thumbup:

    I say "colour" (and you might grown and think "What else would SHE say?") for the simple reason that the strong sky takes away from your subject in the other two version but complements it in the first.
