    I like both for different qualities, but cant choose one that is the best. Also would like some critique on either or both, if anyone has any (which im sure you do) :).

    thanks in advance

    The sepia looks better to my mind. I'm not sure about the colour of the sky in the first one, and the detail seems enhanced in the second.

    i prefare the first colour one, althought there does seem to be more detail in the second for some reason. I like the hazey effect on the first it works nicely with the colours.

    definitely sepia, I dunno why but the colour version looks too fake. the blue of the sky is just too bright

    Definitely sepia. The photo just jumps out at me more in sepia.

    for the color one, are the colors too strong or too bright (light)? they are a little dark, i suppose. nothing i wouldnt expect seeing from a polarizer, but i of course could be wrong.

    heh, i actually think the reason the sepia is more detailed is because it's bigger :)

    thanks for the replies!

    I prefer the color version. Seems to provide more of a feel and atmosphere to the pic. Doesn't really feel fake to me, but then again the skies are like that around here a lot :)

    I voted for sepia. A few others had the same idea I did, something about the color of the sky bothers me in the color version.
