Eetu,

I like the crop of the one on the left, but the color of the one on the right. The right one is warmer with the yellow tinted sun. As far as sharpness, I can't see any difference on my monitor.

Nice pictures...I like northern forests. I've found Pentax gear does seem to stand up to cold temps. I have been out in -25 C in forested areas. My tolerance out in the cold is about an hour...then I head in...the K10D and 55-300mm my cold weather gear has never let me down...touch wood. The K10D seems more tolerant then me in very cold weather.

I agree with Patty -- I prefer the framing on the left, but the color of the right photo is more appealing. I especially like how the sun streaks appear against the tree on the image on the right.

The one on the right looks sharper on my Apple monitor. It's not a hit-over-the-head difference, but it's definitely there. I like the snow better in the one on the left (prefer the cold blue color better), while I like the rest of the shot on the right. The crop isn't hugely different, so I wouldn't throw out the one on the left, but the one on the right is more pleasing to my eye. I would guess that's the one you used InFocus on, it shows.

The one on the right seems more natural - the yellowish color from the low sun is more realistic. The white light in the first one could just as well be an artificial light source - doesn't look like the sun should - unless, of course, you are looking for a more "arty" effect. The left one makes me feel colder, just to look at it!

I missed these...

Both nice but I'd vote for the one on the right...

Wow, thanks for all the kind and helpful input! I sort of prefer the framing of the first photo... my only concern was to somehow maintain the system of thirds... in the first, the sun seemed to far to left, but then everything looked much better as a whole. I agree with the sun looking better in the second...

Well one thing for sure, any "good" photo will take time in post-processing. When someone boasts that they did something in a snap... well... Anway, this is fun, and I am still learning since I made the change over to digital. Thank you everyone for your input.

Ned

I like the framing of the 2nd better but I think the colour of the one on the left more - seems more natural to me than the yellow tints in the trees on the right of the 2nd shot.
