    Hazlehurst Viaduct

    I have always loved the colour which came out of this (this was the light when shot)or would I have been better to tone down the colours

    The lighter one is more arresting but you have lost the nice blue sky. Maybe merge the 2 pics eg 2 on top of 1 and use making to bring back the sky?

    I'll defer to others on the question of whether to tone down the colours or not, but in terms of composition and exposure, the first one is, in my opinion, a much, much better image.

    The sky is blown in the second one. There is a shadow coming across the bottom right corner in the first one, but I don't think it's too great a problem.

    I think the view under the viaduct is far too central in the second one. And those steps up the side being so obvious add nothing positive to it.

    I like the richness of tone in the first one.

    One set of thoughts. Be interested to read those of others.

    I prefer the composition of the first photo and I like the rich colours. The shadows appear to indicate that the sun was high in the sky, causing the camera to produce a higher contrast image than our eyes see. So, if it were my photo, I would try to get more details, and more of those rich colours, out of the shadow areas.
