I like this even more than yesterday's shot. It is so restful to look out over the far distance that you have captured so clearly and almost delicately.

@CElliottUK: I was thinking about your comment on my picture of yesterday and the comparison today, where most people seem to prefer today's. Yesterdays one is my favourite of the two but the response has made me wonder why. I really liked the glow of the foliage and it was a much more challenging shot to get right, so perhaps the difficulty makes me view it differently. It is one of the interesting aspects of exhibiting work I guess. I noticed it when showing paintings and sculpture. Often the ones I was most pleased with were the ones that failed to sell:)

I have carefully read your explanation Grouser! ... You're right in everything. To me something similar happens. Rarely matches what I like with the comments. I guess the look of someone who does the photography and of the beholder collide ... I love to yesterday's ... more. The reflection of lights in green is wonderful, as you say ... very d always eat the green light and is difficult to achieve correct ambient light ... It is true that we learn many things when we expose our photos ... there is always a wealth of input from fellow photographers ... I wish you a nice day and thanks friend. Adela

I like this as much, in a different way, as yesterday's post (which was more about sunlight accenting the trees)... this framing of a pretty town within the boughs = pretty !

A fine shot of the town. I checked yesterday's to be sure I recalled it. Both are interesting and successful shots to me, but very different. Today's I like for the clear view of the city and yesterday's for the growth used as a screen for the tower.

I like that you had to climb the tree for this shot : ] Yesterday was a tapestry of the village that invited the viewer to provide their own narrative, todays is the more conventional "nice shot" view that tells all. best…jf

Beautiful shot - the composition with the leaves surrounding the frame is excellent. However, I'm like you in that I prefer yesterday's shot with the lines and curves of the tree trunks combined with just a hint of the city beyond. Congrats on your color spotlight!

@Jason Politte: Thanks :)

I actually think this is the stronger because of (a) the tones (b) the natural framing and (c) you can actually see the wood for the trees (well the town and the spire then)

nice one G!

The natural framing is wonderful, and this one focuses on the view in the distance, where yesterday's was about the light in the trees, w/something of interest in the background. I like them both!

beautiful capture!

To continue the dialogue; this shot is much more pleasing to the eye, but I can understand how the bright light on those shimmering leaves has made an impression on you. I often see the same, a pool of sunlight focussed on soil around the base of a tree for example.

Outstanding framing by the trees

Perfectly framed and very beautiful. I'm fond of both of them - for different reasons.
