    The 70mm version?

    Or th wide angle with the fence at the bottom?

    And do they "speak" to you in any way at all?

    Edit:
    I really, really, really would have preferred to see them both the same size here for comparison reasons. Thanks to Photobucket they are not :confused: :x ...

    I like the second one. The fence in the foreground adds interest to the scene and holds my attention longer.

    I like the second one better. It gives a nice framing effect.

    I like the second one best. The fence adds alot to the photo yet doesn't take away from the feel of the distance. : )

    I think I like the second, but without the fence. The sky is wonderful, but I find the hard lines a bit too much. And, just as a personal preference, I don't like using something man-made so prominently in such a natural setting UNLESS it has a great deal of... ummm... character.

    Beautiful country. I can imagine taking a nap under one of those trees.

    im going with the second without the fence. in a scene like this, i want to view the expanse of the image. i imagine leaning on the fence and taking it all in; i could lean and listen for hours. as it is, the fence distracts me from doing so in the image. nice shot btw.

    I also think the second one without the fence. Try just cropping out the fence, I bet it would make a really nice panoramic.

    LaFoto.. the second one is much better for me :) the first one might seem a bit boring for some ppl while in the second you concentrated on a subject. the first one would e wonderful during the sunset, or with different light conditions.
