i prefer the first... the mountain in the background gives a sense of scale and place. needs a touch more contrast and saturation to make the colors "pop", but otherwise a good photo.

I prefer this one because it reminds me of that terrifying bus ride on the tiny road carved in those cliffs over to Anacapri.

I think the other one is the better framed shot though. Try spot or center weighted metering when there is sky showing in a photo.

I also prefer the 1st shot - for the same reasons squirl033 mentioned.

I think I like the first version, too, although the second one is probably a better composition. Sometimes what you learn from the picture overrides aesthetics.

Thanks very much for your feedback. It's great to have a consortium of users with an opinion and a good eye.

slipe, when you say centre-weight, do you mean to meter for the sky or simply the centre of the shot?

Also, I edited the 'curves' in PS for first shot which makes it more vibrant. Was the duller original due to Sony's metering? Not trying to turn this into a 'what camera do i buy' but just wondering if SLRs or other brands like Canon do a better job at metering.
