    Simple daylight white balance sure makes things warm. I liked it cooled just a tad. Which do you prefer for colors and which angle do you prefer... 2 part question :D

    Hi,
    The first for the composition and the second for the colour tone.

    kind regards

    the second brings out the natural elements and freatures. Gives the user a better experience. The composition of the first is nice, but is not as intriguing to the viewer.

    I agree with bogleric, the 2nd is more interesting to the eye. I do love the clouds in the first. I don't think you can really go wrong with either!

    I prefer #1 for color and composition, although I think there is too much sky.

    What focal length were you using? Rather than crop it, I'd suggest a wider focal length, and a viewing angle that makes the background "stretch" up higher closer to the image frame, and leaves the foreground where it is.

    I like the second one better, though both are nice. The second shows the mountain as a complete entity while the first one crops it. IMHO, the second is more interesting.

    18mm. So with the 1.5 crop factor it came out to 27mm.

    Like #1 for color; for composition nether totally sorry, IMO more of a square frame would be better, wide as #2 and high as #1 more sky, but if I had to pick I’d go with #1 because of the sky

    I think #1 is better because of the sky. And of the two, it has the better composition.

    This has not been a critique--only a comparison.
