I can't pick a favourite of the two, possibly because they aren't taken from the same angle.
#1 looks colder and, to me, #2 looks like the sky is getting lighter.
Both interesting shots Walter. Cheers Lyn

The first has less green in it. I prefer that.

Thank you all for posting. It was as I expected.

# 1 is more blue cast then # 2 which has 3 units of cyan / green in it. So, for winter scenes # 1 is the way to go.


@ Bob: Funny thing. I have the same two pictures posted on a Norwegian forum, and everyone preferred the composition of # 1 to # 2 - So tastes are different on each side of the Atlantic! :^)


Beste regards,
Walter

I'm not going to break the rule ........ I prefer No.2 for the composition and colour.

Why, thank you DyaneG - I'm just glad you liked one of them! Good of you to let me know, anyway!

Best regards,
Walter

P.S.: You know, I startet my photographic career with my then new FZ-28 about 3 years ago - a camera I really got along with and cherished!

:^)

I too like the second one because of the composition - it seems (to me) better without the nearby conifer.

I downloaded it to see what it would be like in a plain (colorless) version, but the complete absence of color didn't seem to work.

So I then tried to reduce the overall blue by lowering the saturation. Does this appeal?

Absolutely, Herb!

I think you have found a very nice balance of colors there. Great edit. Thank you for your effort.

Between you and me - the conifer (as you call it..) seems to be "out of place" in picture #1 anyway. Who has ever seen such a tree in the middle of an otherwise flat field, a mile away from the woods...?

I love them all! Well done!! As a Canadian, I can appreciate getting a good snow 'colour'. And to add to the composition debate, if I had to choose, I like the 1st scene
