Hi Thanks for your comment, but what is so different ? I have to admit I am color blind, but not sure why #1 is much better (it could be some PP I have made that is cause her ?)
Can you details a bit more ?

(just curious)

thanks

For me #1 it looks like the large tree is sharper and the tree line has a bit more detail.
#2 the tree line looks a little blown out to get a bit more detail.
Its hard to tell but I believe if you made prints of both and hung them on a wall #1 would get a much better response.
This could have a lot to do with the position of the sun.
Not the lens fault though 😉

ok, thanks this is informative... but I have to admit the some PP could have made some artifacts on the tree line...

I like both shots but I think the greater degree of separation between the tree and the sun in the second shot is better, I'd be happy with either.

No matter what you do, put it in a competition and some smart ass will tell you to move the sun 3mm further to the left/right whatever and do they go and take it themselves .......
