On the Bank of the River Seine

This post started with a visit to Chateau Gaillard, which is a castle that was built by Richard the Lionheart and sits on the bank of the River Seine in Normandy, France. As you can see from this original shot, it was a beautiful day:

ISO 200 22mm f/16 1/200sec

My first edit was this one:

ISO 200 22mm f/16 1/200sec

I was initially happy with it, but decided last week to take another shot at it and here is the second edit:

ISO 200 22mm f/16 1/200sec

The first change, was a minor one to the cropping. The second was to change the tones just a bit before applying other boosting edits like changes to the sky and sharpening. None of these second edits were massively different than the first, but overall I like the second version better.

What do you think, do you prefer one version over the other or are these similar enough that you don’t have a particular preference? Your thoughts and comments are welcome below.

Cheers!
