    without!

    I only say that because I had to look at each image several times before I knew what you were talking about. Since it took me a while to even notice it, I say ditch it. Honestly, I thought you were trying to do something with the power lines since that's what held my attention. Once I got away from the power line I saw what you were talking about.

    I would go with edit #2 but delete the power line.

    #1 for sure, your messed with the sky in #2 as well look top left quadrant. There is some odd crooked GND filter applied or something! But I do see the with/without as well and I would say that I like it without if you can not mess with the sky.

    Clone looks good, but I like the sky on #1 (left) better. Good shot

    No I agree it is a little over saturated, but I think it works here.

    I thought that was a ski lift thing, not powerlines. I prefer it without as well.

    The image with the effect put on ( can't tell what it is, but whatever it is wreaked havoc on your image) has extreme pixelation going on.

    Notice on the second image how it appears to have chunks of color rather than a blending of colors that the first has? This is due to there not being enough information for the computer to properly process the effect **or** the effect pushes the boundaries of the image to a point where it literally rips apart the existing proper gradation of color.

    To me, this is a move someone with inexperience makes (though not always, this can be a choice) since from what I've seen there are a lot of people just getting into editing that don't know what to look for.

    Without house looks really good, but with house gives it a little bit more depth....depends on what you want to go for i suppose. I would tone down color ever so slightly but thats just my opinion.

    Nice picture :thumbup:

    Without, definitely without. The second house keeps pulling my eye away from the first house, and just fells like a distraction, like it doesn't fit with the rest of the frame. I also agree with the others, everything else looks slightly better in #1, other than the house. Otherwise, awesome photo!
