    The crop of nr2 is better. But I would also try to get rid of the fish-eye angle. And I believe a B&W conversion with a heavy red filter would be cool.

    Nice lines in this shot. It has all the potential but I believe it's not completely finished.

    Cheers, Jeroen

    The crop is better. No doubt. That was what I thought before I even got to view the cropped version: "I would crop it so that thing in the foreground would be gone" were my thoughts.

    But jeroen is right: the colours are better in the first version.

    I preffer the crop, i feel it highlights the pylons a little more. But there both good. I was driving back the other day down the motorway and there were men working on these things, sat on little karts which ride along the cables. about 6 guys sat on it like in the picture of the guys on the RSJ over New York, Construction Workers lunching on a crossbeam, 1932, i think..., off topic but i wish i had got the camera!

    With the cropped version, you've taken off too much and created a tangent with the bottom of the the middle electric tower. I think it needs a bit of space. You've also cropped out the most vibrant greens in the shot. Tough call.

    the left side of both images is missing something, #2 is still better than #1
