    John, interesting title but I see how it fits. Both nice images but I actually prefer the first because of the brighter blues and greens. A power walk. Yes, I like it.

    I prefer the second image, John. I like the processing and I think it places more emphasis on the power poles than the first. I find the green of the vegetation takes my attention away from them.

    Hi John.

    I prefer the top image because the colors are more appealing to me. I like that you captured the curved dirt road that runs between the two sets of power lines. It provides a nice lead into the image.

    You might try a bit of a curves adjustment to enhance the contrast to see if you like the image any better.

    The second one has an old picture feel to it that is nice. But the vignette is encroaching on the left poles and pushes my attention away.

    I like the first one but wonder if you took a little off the right side (and the top to keep the size ratio) and put the road coming right out of the corner if it might work a little better.

    The first image is really a snapshot, while the second makes more of an edgy statement, because your PP choices. I'd be tempted to try a B&W conversion to see if that simplifies the shot a bit more and takes things down to the bare essentials. Take it easy on the vignette; while I do use them a lot, I find that I agree with Didace. It needs a bit of a lighter touch.

    The B&W and recrop works for me. It gets rid of the superfluous details that take away from the subject matter. You might want to try putting a small, light vignette back to pull the eyes in a bit.
