    They were there grooming for a couple of minutes. The first two were a couple of seconds apart reversed in sequence - the last about 30s later. I took a few more, but chose these for the eyes, mainly.

    Toby, both photos are excellent.

    I lingered and pondered over the bottom photo as the trees have a bit more space, the gradual dissolve of the trees disappearing into the whitish aspic ticks my boxes, too!

    I prefer the top one, the trees continue right out of the frame.
    But both seem to be leaning to the right.

    I like both. Strong and simple. Pushes my buttons :)

    As Paul says the bottom one appeals as the trees have more room to breath in the frame. I also prefer the fact you can't see the far trees in the left of the frame as I find they are a bit distracting in the top image.

    The top one appeals as I believe (could be wrong) that you have been able to straighten the image to a greater extent as there is less of the horizon in the image meaning you can align to the frontmost tree without the horizon then being off if you see what I mean. (Whereas on the bottom image, the tree is leaning slightly more to the right). I alsp prefer the slightly warmer toning (could be wrong as viewing on phone?) On this image

    On balance, my preference is for the bottom image.

    Get the 3rd tree in vertical and it looks better, adjusting the first tree makes everything seem to lean the other way.

    Thanks Paul & Pete. For me the film version was definitive at full resolution, less sure at this size. It's more organic, and melancholy.

    I've photographed this row of poplars dozens of times from this spot, never been quite happy with the result, mainly the sky hasn't quite hit the potential. The scene has also been photographed by far more esteemed 'Somme' photographers than myself - Mike St.Maur Sheil, Brian Harris and Peter Cattrell (who printed for Fay Godwin, and still does her catalogue for exhibitions) amongst them.

    I think I photographed these at the opposite ends of the same day in early March. I have only now noticed that I must have stood precisely in my earlier footsteps, and I've made a lot of footsteps there!

    Pete, I think the near trees do lean a bit, the frame is straight. There is probably a bit of WA distortion though. I remember straightening an earlier take, and actually preferring it leaning a little into the centre.

    Thanks, Amar, you posted whilst I was compiling!
