    I'm not so sure that the composition in the first one hits the mark. But, oh, that second one.

    Not only is the lighting, exposure etc., different, but that change of position with the foreground rock less dominant and the edge of the rock making for, what I would describe as, a 'softer' line running more horizontally instead of slashing much more of a diagonal across the image (as, I would suggest, in the first one), makes for a much stronger image ... in my opinion.

    And then that long-exposed sky just works a treat.

    good work Russell!
    both picture are beautiful, but the 2nd one is much better
    I just wonder if ever the picture would be better without that strong vignetting...

    Ditto to all of the above regarding the second one.
