Great shots Kjel.

Of the three I favor number two. The tower or smokestack in # 1 spoils it for me. What I like about # 2 is the plowed field in the foreground leading my eye into the picture.

Thanks all for your inputs!
John and GW, I'm very happy owning this lens. I bought it new 1986, and even inflation taken into account I think it has kept it's value (in money that is, for use it's invaluable). I didn't afford it then, borrowed money from friends and it took me months to pay them back. Today I'm glad I did.
Scott, thanks for the effort. It leads my thoughts to another planet, under a red sun and where Superman was born... Interesting effects though, makes you look twice or more.
Lou, I actually thoght about cloning it out, but since it's there in real life maybe it can provoke some thoughts. One emerging problem for landscape shooters here are the ever increasing number of wind power stations. As environmental and climate friendly as they are, they certainly destroy the skyline.

Very nice, Kjell. I like the delicate tones. There is an almost other-worldly effect to Scott's modifications.

i love the muted colours in these, they have a great feel
all three have something very likeable about them
the sky in the first one is wonderful
the ploughed field leading into the picture in the second
and that extra sky plus the ploughed field in the third, although vertical doesnt seem to "fit" the scene

if i took photos on the way to work i would either be rather late
or have to leave hours earlier

Lovely shots.

Agree with Lou & Gumnut. #3 doesn't seem to fit what should be a landscape shot and I like the way the sharpness of #2 foreground leads you into the shot.

I like the sky in #1 best but the mist and foreground of #2. #2 wins overall.

I like the vertical composition best, it really draws attention to the specific elements that make the scene.
