    As usual, comments on improvement are welcomed.

    prefer the 2nd one, the crane in the 1st one looks a bit strange compared to the 2nd one. Like the blue sky and the sunset in the 2nd one

    I prefer the second one too. =) Both are pretty nice actually. The saturation is impactful and the black border with a thin stroke is good.

    As for the first pic, I find the black line running down from the crane too distracting. It looks a little strange...what happened? =)

    It might be the cable that runs down from whatever that is holding it. As it is visible in the second picture. Anyway, like the 2nd best. Good shot!

    2nd pic works well. Love the sats in the colours.. long time no see such colours for a sunset...

    as for the crane thing. basically why you find 2 is better than 1 is the fact of pic 2 observed the conventional rule of 3rds. Just rotate both pics 90degrees CCW to see.

    Well shot.. got one in landscape orientation?

    Yup those weird lines are actually the cables as speculated by Spectrum.
    The crane was actually moving then the cables were swaying so thats why the pic was not very sharp

    Just added in a landscape orientation one. Personally, I still prefer a potrait version. Think it gives me a more dramatic feel.
    Dunnoe why nowadays I tend to compose my shots in potrait

    Definitely pic 2. The crane acts as a leading line across the picture. The first one looks a bit out of place and initially at first glance could not make out what it was.

    As for the third pic, there was too much emtiness on the right side.

    Nice pictures nevertheless. Very nice saturated sunset colours. Polarizer?

    Yup the first one, the crane was in a weird position.
    No polarizer man .. just me and my lowly F601Z

    2nd & 3rd pics are a bit purplish in the middle ... I think the 1st pic is more realistic right ?
